EDIT!!!! not "hot" pixels. just very white "snow like" noise across all areas of the image.
So I have had a 60D for quite a while now, I do quite a bit of low light photography and have never had a problem with "hot" pixles at any ISO.
I recently purchased a 7D and noticed right away that any ISO 1250 and above I'm getting what I would call an extreme amount of hot pixles. Take a look at the example pictures and please tell me if I've just got a very good 60D, or a really bad 7D. These shots are SOOC and have NO noise reduction on in camera.
60D as a link because of the suck power of internet compression.
7D as a link because of the suck power of internet compression.
Now before anyone says, "oh you pixel peeper you, you'll never notice those in a normal sized picture!" I say yes I damn well did. I noticed it first in a normal low light picture.
I'm fully aware that the 60D and the 7D share the same image sensor which is why I'm concerned about the state of my 7D's noise. You would think that being a more expensive much more powerful camera, that the noise would be at LEAST equal. Is this normal?
I can still return it for a full refund or replacement if this is not absolutely normal.
