HD10u stuck pixels - See the Video

I know there have been other threads on dead or stuck pixels, but since I have a sample file posted I thought it's worthy of a new thread.

http://homepage.mac.com/tvwriter/.Public/test.m2t

7.9MB, a couple of seconds long... loop it in VLC (apple-L) to notice it.
I'll delete the file in a couple of weeks.

I'll have to paint every frame to make this footage useful.

I'm happy the resolution is high enough to show my interview subject's dandruff but of course I'm disappointed in the bright green cluster (it seems like more than one pixel).

Murad the pixel is not all that bad, well from that clip anyway, since its lower in the frame, maybe you could crop it?

Or just put a watermark !

Murad,

Call JVC and have it serviced. Let them determine what's up and get it fixed so you can see more of your interviewees' physical problems. <g>

I didn't think it was that bad either, it actually took me a while to find it because it was on the dark jacket.

But for me, being the **** rententive one, I'd have it looked at by JVC as Heath suggested.

Nice footage by the way. Did you use your own lighting?

Anhar, thanks for the suggestion. It'll be much easier to drop a lower third on the footage than to paint each frame.

Heath, I'll take it in to JVC asap. I'll post the outcome in this thread. Then I'll shoot more people with lint, cat hair, dandruff and makeup problems.

Troy, I'm glad it wasn't as obvious to others (you and Anhar) as it was to me. But yeah I'm pretty particular about what I shoot and edit, just like you, so JVC will meet this camera again.

Other than the green patch I'm satisfied with the footage and I'm glad you like it. The lighting was from inside the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Illinois. It's perfectly daylight balanced so the w.b. "sun" preset worked great. I held the camera with one hand and the microphone with the other.

Don't settle for the dead pixel, it's very bad. I saw that the minute it rolled! Not good at all, it would drive me nuts to see that green dot. It shouldn't happen anyway. I have always feared dead pixels, and have always checked my cameras before i purchase them because of that. Did yours come after or was it there always.

VirtualDub

you can use this plugin for VirtualDub to remove the stuck pixel:

go to :

http://neuron2.net/faq.html#flaxen



My camcorder has a stuck pixel. Is there a filter that can remove it?
Here a little creative thinking is required! Think of your stuck pixel(s) as a logo that you want to remove. Sure, it is a very tiny logo, but that doesn't matter. Given this thinking, we can now select Chris Wojdon's LogoAway filter (available through the Other section of this site) and use it to replace the stuck pixel(s) with nearby pixel values.


however i'm not sure if VirtaulDub will load mpeg TS files try trasocdoding it first
