We have this XD Cam that went on a commercial shoot for a laser tattoo removal client. When it came back it had 4 white flecks. Several black balances later 1 fleck remains. Any wisdom (or black magic)on how to remove this remaining dot? TIA. Steve

Is it possible they shot the laser into the camera? They might have damaged the imager.

No, we viewed the footage and there was no direct laser to lens shot. Several frames looked like the CCD got overloaded though. When we step through they look like a green splash.

Maybe it got hit from the side? Might be worth sending in for repair. That's a lot of pixels to fry over one gig.

You might try to get an extended warranty for the camera first. But don't tell anyone that I suggested that.

Last year, I got a call from a Sony rep selling warrantees and I told him that I had a DSR-20 deck in the trash bin. He sold me a warranty for $200 and I sent the deck in. They replaced the head drum and the tape transport and gave me another year warranty. I sold the deck as soon as it came back for $1200 and that was over a year ago. It still works great.

Call your dealer and ask. The Sony repair center makes money on it no matter what.

Heh, heh. It is still under warranty and on its way back to Santa's workshop.
