I picked up my camera today and the image is very clean. The difference between before and after is huge, especially at -18db. The weird thing is that the repair guy could not reproduce my problem. He did remap the pixels just in case.

I am happy that those pixels are gone and I hope I will never see them back.

I am glad you are happy with the results but I am confused as to how they remapped pixels they could not find as bad? Did they just reconfigure the general region that you had the bad pixels based on pre-exising footage?

Marty, I am also puzzled but this what they told me. I included a tape with the pixels recorded so I guess they used that. But like I said, it is completely clean now so I am very happy and hope it will stay like this.

Did you had to pay for it or was it still under warranty?

I bought the camera in NY and Sagemax will cover it. Apparantly
Canon only gives 3 month guarantee on repair work in Europe.
