I noticed an unexpected black spec on an early image out of my D200 the other day. Wasn't sure what it was so I did a little research on hot,dead, & stuck pixels. Using the D200's Multiple Exposure feature (shooting menu) to create an "ubermask" (see: http://www.cs.wisc.edu/~jduffy/699/ } by shooting a 10 exposure shot. This confirmed that I do, indeed, have a single dead pixel on my brand new camera. See photos at: http://www.pbase.com/efusco/d200 My question. Is this a common finding on a new camera. Should I immediately send the camera in or just deal with the dead pixel. Should I expect it to be perfect 'out of the box'? I don't wanna over-react but I also don't wnat to have to deal with this dead pixel forever if it's something folks general have fixed early on. comments, suggestions, advice?
