Dpreview forum pple have been complaining about the excessive noise reduction which washes out details at normal sharpening. U may have to try soft sharpening for no in-camera processing.Originally posted by mpenza
haven't. was there NR? thought the camera doesn't have any NR implemented.
saw this late. I use a program that checks for dead/hot pixel. it reads in the image file and checks through the pixels to identify those which exceed a certain threshold compared to its neighbours.Originally posted by DanielG
What are hot pixels? And how do you identify and count them?
Could be. Also I found that there seems to be noise reduction only in manual mode and not others. The NR will reduce hot pixels significantly.Originally posted by DanielG
Which program is that?
I also notice a lot of hot pixels on my S602Z. I took at 6MP @ ISO 400 at night. The hot pixels appear consistantly at the same places in many different pics. This did not happen previously when I took at night. Is is due to the CCD heating up?
