Pixel Masking

I noticed two dead pixies but it seems the masking procedure has been deleted. Anyone know the procedure for masking pixels?

Thanks Alan, I emailed you. Btw, is it possible to PM in this forum? I don't seem to have that feature. Maybe I'm on double secret probation here for asking too many dumb questions and lowering the general level of discussion.

New cam - dead pixels

Our GY-HD251 has maybe 10 hrs recording and it's already got 2 dead pixels. And from operating only in studios and at rock concert, no heat, nothing.
We use it for film-quality work, some of it going to 35mm-filmout.
If dead pixels grow at this speed we'll soon have a Swiss cheese picture.
one can't go on masking forever - or before every shoot.

What should we do ? mask? have the vendor mask ? notify JVC Switzerland? send it in ?

Thanks

btw i already posted on this subject about a year ago but regarding a 110 with quite a few hours. this one is brand new.

If it was me, and as long as I had ample warranty remaining, I wouldn't worry about it, keep using the camera and stay vigilant for malfunctions. Be sure to look for issues on a decent monitor--don't trust the LCD. It's junk.

I have no idea as ive never used it. did you get those pixels masked? i just had to mask two stuck pixels last week after noticing them on a short we just recently completed- not the best time to discover them! Listen to Bruce- USE A MONITOR!
