    Today while shooting there is a hot (stuck red pixel) that appeared in my pictures. It wasn't there and then it was and it remained there the whole day.

    Is there any way to fix this ? What should I do about it. It is roughly at 20% from the bottom and 40% from the left, so it would be bottom middle pretty much.

    If your camera has pixel mapping , that will take care of it. If not, you can either send it in or just forget about it. Stuck pixels, like sensor dust, are inevitable

    Like Sam mentioned above. Try the pixel mapping function. I had an EPL1 in the past and had some hot pixels. I used the pixel mapping to fix and they gone away.

    Seems like pixel mapping fixed it.

    Thanks to Olympus for this feature. Not offered by Nikon, their only fix is to send the camera in for service. (This was on the D90)

    Well, in fairness, the D90 came out about 4 years ago. My Pentax cameras have had pixel mapping for at least that long, and I'd bet the Nikons since the D90 would have it.

    Still, it is a very handy feature as hot pixels are just inevitable with digital cameras.

    Well in fairness to Olympus, they had it on the E-1 which was released in 2003 or NINE YEARS AGO!

    Yes, they did. And on another note the E1 had probably one of the best smooth sounding shutters on that camera. Quite as can be!
