    Was zooming in on a part of a picture and darn, noticed a little white square meaning a pixel had gone out. It was on several others too. I have a warranty still and the camera, and Olympus E620, has pixel mapping. I used this and it seemed to take care of the issue; however being its under warranty should I still send it in for a more in-depth test? I'm not an expert at this sort of thing, just want to make sure the problem is corrected.

    Any suggestions appreciated, thanks!

    It's up to you. I had a hot pixel on my original 5D2 that only showed up in video mode. I had Adorama exchange it for me.
