Wow! That's.... Really, uh, bad! Surely that's a card issue, I hope?

It appears the sensor in the camera is going bad. Digital spots everywhere. I can fly, but I love photography. Back to my trusty Nikon. LOL
WVR..did you ever sort this one out? I'm a photographer too, and have never seen anything like this, and I've had dozens of cameras over the years since digital kicked Ektachrome to the kirb.

No, life is busy and I'm forgetful in my age. I wanted to put a new ultra extreme SD card in my P4 and it wouldn't format. I talked to Sandisk live on line and he said the the card was bad from the start. He told me to take it back to Walmart. I had the card with me but forgot to exchange it. I noticed that some earlier pictures had some digital marks in them, but not as bad. I lot of my sd card have a lot of use on them. I need to weed them out. I want a good new card as a benchmark to see what the problem is. Between the rain, my wife's honeydew list, my disabled daughter, my 5 doctor's visits in the past 7days and my 7 month old grandson. I haven't had the time. I will post the results here. There is some variation from one picture to the next in the severity of the digital marks.

Oh shoot, sorry Bud. These are called Hot Pixels, and all digital cameras will have one or two or a few. They are usually not even noticed, but thousands means that there is excess leakage current in the sensor or the bias voltage is out of kilter. Unrepairable.

Remove the camera and replace it with one of those gizmos that releases ordnance/munitions.

You need a new drone. Or at least replace the camera. I bought a Canon DSLR once but sent it back to Canon because it had lots of dead pixels or of the box. I mean, a lot. The pictures were bad and the video was unusable. Do you have any warrenty on the drone?

Thank you for the explanation. I guess I can use it for fishing. I would have loved to have had it when I lived in Florida. I know your area very well, even if I'm not Amish. I always like the more quite areas like Venice Beach. I still have my home made telescopic sand sifter for sharks teeth. It was also good for catching sand flees for fishing.
