    Unhappy Is this a bright pixel?

    Hi Guys,

    Just bought my D80 yesterday and I notice something which looks like a bright/hot pixel.

    The bright pixel appears 70% of the time. Sometimes its harder to notice it.

    Can anyone help to confirm before I bring it back to exchange? Thanks!

    Its not appearing in the LCD though. Only when the image is blown up then it appears.

    If the bright dot occurs at exactly the same spot on all your unresized and uncropped photos, then yes it's likely a bright pixel on your sensor. It will probably be more apparent when the area around it is dark.

    it's worse when it's not appearing on the LCD cos it'll be a sensor problem.

    Thanks everyone. I'll be exchanging it later today.

    Hopefully the next kit won't have this issue!
