Dead pixel in video of 5D Mk II
« on: September 22, 2012, 10:44:57 PM »
Just noted a dead/hot pixel in my video, showing up as a white dot, on my 5D Mark II. 

Tried the manual cleaning for 30 sec. a few times already, but it's not working.  Anyone has any other suggestion on how to fix this.  For some reason, the dead pixel only appears on my video footage and not my pictures.

Send it to Canon telling them of the issue.  I believe they can map it out and you will not notice the missing pixel.  I've read of others with the issue, and Canon seems to be able to fix it.
