Daily Photo Tip

Fine Art Photography

'Dropped' pixels are pixels that malfunction and repeatedly produce a colour value that doesn't correspond to the rest of the photograph. Dropped pixels can be repaired using photography software. (Jul 18, 2009)

Note that the Pentax K20D and K-7 have an in-camera "Pixel Mapping" function that will fix the problem. It finds the dead pixels and use an algorithm so that the pixel takes the color of its neighbor pixels. Pentax is so humble about their features!
