Hot Pixels in new 50s II

Recommended Posts

Hi there, I've had my new 50s II for about 2 weeks now and I'm overall loving the camera. I've noticed that there were hot pixels with the straight out of the box in both the OOC jpegs and RAW files. My initial pixel remapping did take away the hot pixels, but different hot pixels would creep back in after about 2 or so days of shooting. Now, I'm pixel remapping about every other day out of paranoia. I understand that hot pixels are a fact of life with digital sensors, and the problem is more prevalent at high ISOs and long exposures. I was a longtime user of the Sony a7 series and the Fuji X series of cameras and can't recall a time ever having to worry about these hot pixels (aside from cloning out a few here and there from the occasional long exposure). I've noticed a lot of talk about hot pixels with the GFX 100s and am wondering if anyone else is experiencing this as well with their 50S/50S II? I'm hoping to find out before my exchange window runs out.

Hello schoepy

I have owned the GFX 50S-II since March (with around 2000 shots) and this problem has not occurred yet, thankfully. The problem of burnt pixels is typical and unique to the sensor structure and seems to afflict many cameras of many different brands. I think the cause is the frenzied rush to resolution / sharpness, which generates increasingly "dense" sensors: it is clear that among many millions of pixels "someone" can go wrong ...
