We HATE dead pixels. You know what we’re talking about, those annoying little specs on your footage that come from a flaw in your dslr sensor. We do have some kung-fu to “fix them in post”, but that sucks. Render time is a black hole that we don’t like to pile on to. So when we recently discovered a dead pixel in our 7D, we hit the interwebs looking for a way to fix it that does not include losing our camera to the Canon fix it factory for two weeks.
Full disclosure, we have not tried this method yet, but this video is from Charles Trippy seems to be one the most popular solutions to fixing dslr dead pixels. We’re about to try it out. We’ll let you know how it goes.
