Merry Christmas

I was looking at the photos on my online photo gallery today and I noticed what appeared to be a dead pixel in the full-size version of one of the pictures.  Disconcerted by this, I checked a few other pictures with dark backgrounds to see if, indeed, this pixel was white in all of them.  It was.  Grrr.  I checked pictures from just after I got the camera and the dead pixel wasn’t there.  So, I decided to try to figure out exactly when the pixel died.  By scouring my digital photos I found the last photo in which it wasn’t present and the first photo in which it was present.  The last photo before the pixel died was taken on December 25th, 2005 and the first photo with the dead pixel was taken December 26th, 2005.  What a great Christmas present…  Obviously, it’s not a huge deal since it took me about 10 months to notice it.  That said, it’s still annoying.  Added to that, I found another dead pixel in my images.  I haven’t figured out exactly when that one died, but I’m beginning to wonder if maybe it isn’t time to get a new camera.  I’ve been wanting a digital point and shoot with a better movie mode for a couple of months now.  Maybe this Christmas?
