    i have a canon powershot which i am very pleased with but i tried taking some photos without the flash in near darkness and when i uploaded them i noticed a few yellow and red specs here and there

    i first thought dodgy pixels but on checking evry other day shot found no probs at all

    is this a problem with other digital cameras??

    looks like a few pixels not taking the right color in but all other hpotos are fine ???

    cheers for any answers

    I have the s45 and have taken near dark pictures but havent noticed this.

    Any chance of looking at the picture and knowing ap, shut speed, etc settings are so that I can try and take a picyure with same settings, (am already assuming f2.8)

    They are referred to as hot pixels. Canon's are usually pretty good with their noise reducing algorithems. What model are you using?

    Typically they show up red, green and blue and are on exposures longer that 2 secs.

    You can remove them with software easily enough.....
