p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Is my 5D on the way out?


I have a 5D classic, It's had the shutter replaced under the Canon Recall.
It had 5k after canon checked the true shutter count for me, and I put maybe 10k on it... so maybe 15k clicks total...

I noticed a few days ago when I got back from my Honeymoon, The Long exposure shots I took
are showing up real weird. There are rbg dots all over..... Is my sensor going bad?

Here's what it looks like in Browsing Bridge.... I had to take a screen shot because as soon as I open it up
in Photoshop cs5 extended, It all disappears. I'm wondering if cs5 is Auto noising or auto correcting it
before I can even stop it. Because as soon as I open the raw file, It's there and then it all disappears for a moment.
But, their on every picture.

And, their not stars....

Heres the bridge screen shot....

Note: I'm using this photo because it shows them the best... Obv it's not a good photo....



So once it's opened, all those dots go away after 2 seconds. And their visible on all of my 30 second exposure.



Here is another long that you can see the dots.....

On long exposure shots you will get a bunch of pixels 'maxing out' before the others and getting stuck. The raw converters map these out so you don't see them in the final shot but it is very normal.

Heck it's hard to decide to upgrade from a 5Dc. Such an incredible camera.

I upgraded to a Mark II. I needed the extra pixels.
Still prefer the look of the Mark I files. I wish I hadnt sold by 5D, but I needed the cash to justify the upgrade.
Keep it if you can. Tell your wife you need it as backup!

All cameras have hot pixels like those. They develop more as they age. Good news is that most modern RAW converters automatically get rid of them. Many newer cameras also will do pixel mapping in camera, so when you select that function it will find which pixels are hot and permanently map them out.

JP , so your newly wed as these are from your Honeymoon , and your new wife has said " ok how much?"
Get in there quick and upgrade my friend . In a couple of years I bet the go ahead won't be quite so easy to get

But seriously I don't think DPP cuts the hot/dead pixels out , run your raw's thru a different software and I bet you won't see the pixels .

Commonly known hot pixel fix for Canon:

Remove your lens from the bayonet and slide on a body cap (I've also done it with the lens on body and lens cap in place YMMV).

Activate your sensor cleaning setting. This disconnects your sensor and remaps your sensor. I usually leave it in clean mode for 60 seconds or so.
Then turn camera off, mount the lens and try a long exposure and see if the hot pixels have been remapped.
Works 99% of the time.

If you find that you still have hot pixels, try the above again but remove the camera battery for a minute or so as well.

Just do it after you've bought your 5DMKII (or MKIII) so you can get away with buying a new body ... haha.

+1

I own a 5Dc, a 5DIII and a 1DIV. You can take the 5Dc out of my cold, dead hands.
