30D - Sensor Calibration?

Is there such a thing?

My 30D was sent back to Canon last week Monday, and finally got some news from the reseller which I purchased the camera from.

I sent it in for reasons stated in the following forum topic Long Exposure Noise Phenomenon .

The chap at the store told me that a technical person is going to re-calibrate the sensor on the 30D and run tests thereafter. Is there such a thing? Or is this just a stall tactic?

Thanks in advance.
Bruce.

To my knwoledge in theory you can calibrate a camera for its gain (ISO) response and also for its long noise performance, and finaly you can also map out hot pixels.

What can be done for your model I do not know.

All Canon's Sensor Calibration did was waste a couple days. 2 weeks now without the camera, and they have finally decided to replace the sensor? Should I be worried?
