BMPCC 4K Dead pixels

PostThu Dec 06, 2018 8:54 pm

Just recieved my camera and it has about 7 maybe more red/white/blue/green dead pixels straigh in front of center third of the screen! What should I do? Send it back overseas? It has no pixel remap function so I don't know.

You should contact Blackmagic support. To someone here on the forum with the same problem they have stated that the camera can be send in to a local Blackmagic office and they can map the pixels out.
BTW, dead pixels are normally just black, so yours seem to be stuck or hot pixels.
