Hot pixels

Hi everyone,

I'm just wondering if I should worry about hot pixels? I have a few in the photographs taken with my Nikon D90 but if I shoot raw and import them into lightroom I find that lightroom automatically removes them all anyway.

Thanks
John.

I think you've answered your own question to be honest.

A few are not worth worrying about.

"Hot" coloured pixels are absolutely normal in images with reasonably long exposures - any DSLR will have those. Usually they come in some pattern and increase in numbers as shutter slows. Also, they may come out when shooting long series and in hot weather. Nothing to worry about.
