One tsunami later and I am still waiting...

Well I guess I'm in the same boat waiting for the 5d to rear it's ugly head so I can nab one when it gets released... It seems I might as well be looking for big foot or the loch ness monster because they may be easier to spot now a days ahaha
Canon 5d III, Canon 24-105L, Canon 17-40L, Canon 70-200 F4L, Canon 100L 2.8, 430EX 2's and a lot of bumps along the road to get to where I am.

I have a Rebel XT (350D, almost as old) that used to have hot pixels, but then I discovered that it and newer cameras (not sure about the 300D) have firmware to do a black frame subtraction to remove them. It automatically does this when you go into and back out of manual sensor cleaning mode (that pops the mirror up and opens the shutter for manual cleaning).
