    Hello Everyone,

    Just bought a new digital camera, the Kodak DX7590. This is a 5MP model with
    the 10X zoom lens.

    I am very impressed with the camera overall, however, I am very disappointed
    that both the electric view finder and built in LCD both have defective
    pixels. Are defective pixels still common in today's digital cameras? Do the
    digital cameras you all own have the same problem?

    The stuck pixels don't seem to hurt anything, but for this price it is
    rather annoying to have them on the screen when viewing pictures or showing
    them to friends.

    Thanks for any information!

    Hi James,

    Sorry to hear about your experience.

    This not very common these days, are you sure it is a pixel? Do you have any
    sample images that you can share? We can then review and see what the issue
    may be. Might be something on the imager? Anyway, since you just bought
    it, I would return it and exchange for another. Let me know how you make

    Hi James, I just bought a Fuji S5500 and it might have the same problem
    you have. Through the EVF/LCD there is a bright blue dot which does not
    show up when play back pictures on the camera and does not show up when
    I put the camera in movie mode. I checked for the dot after transfering
    pictures to the pc but it is not there.
    It might be a different problem though because playing back pictures is
    fine on this camera.

    The question is indeed what to do. It might be just a regular anomaly
    and sending it back is then a bit nitpickerish. Anyway good luck, Ron
