It's not as official as an actual menu-item so can someone describe the method in more detail and I'll test it out.haven't seen a camera yet that didn't have, or eventually develop, some hot pixels.
That's what dark frame subtraction's for, even the in-camera process is usable for most shots.
At least SOME mfrs, NOT Canon, NOT Nikon, allow you to map out bad pixels right from the camera menu.
Not true, doing a 'sensor clean' with the cap on for a minute or so allows the camera to remap the sensor, and gone are all the hot pixels
That is indeed a great and easy way to do it! Did that last winter - it was so easy I thought someone was just trying to pull our legs with that tip.
I have a Rebel that developed a bunch of hot pixels as I was shooting studio shots with it over a matter of minutes. So I can test that out.
With the lenscap on the lens, go to the camera menu and select 'manual cleaning'. The mirror will flip up and the camera black out. Leave it for a minute, then switch off the camera to complete the 'cleaning'. You can do this with any lens on the camera, no need to use the body cap.
