Where did you buy from? Idealy is going back to the shop to exchnage. The 4 you see are what colours and under what kind of exposure and shutter speed? Sometimes they may be hot pixel and not dead pixel! ;)

Kevin is right....after shooting for a while, hot pixels will make their apperance, especially if u r using high ISO and long exposure time.

You mean the LCD Screen at the back of the DC? Then is not dead/hot pixel on your CCD since the photo is OK. As long as photo OK can lor. But you pay a lot for a C50 so may be go back to the shop to change another one lor. Where did you buy it from??? :dunno:

The Olympus servicing centre at High Street Centre can really do a good job in eliminating those hot or stuck pixels. My C-2040 had 3-4 hot/stuck pixels shown on a test shot (totally dark pic). I sent my cam there and it took them just one day to solve the problem. It's free if under warranty. Kudos Olympus S'pore. :thumbsup:
