    As I understand it, long exposures on a digital camera can eventually result in stuck or hot pixels due to charge leakage.
    Does anyone know how the use of a DSLR copes with being used for video as surely the sensor is being used for long periods, and so will be more at risk of charge leakage?

    Most camera manufacturers put a time limit on video recording - to keep the camera in a lower tax band. It would seem they can record for longer periods without any problem.
    As cameras are used to make professional videos it seems reasonable to presume that with modern technology the possibility of developing hot pixels over time is no longer considered to be an issue.

    Even the very latest dslr's will suffer hot pixels when subjected to extremely long exposures.
