Hi, i work with an HVX 200 with some 32 and 16 gig P2 cards. Recently , from time to time, i get those anoying pixel problems. It always take place on only one frame and could happen a couple of time inside the same clip. I first thougth that it was a card problem, but since it occur on different card and randomly i start to think it s inside the camera (probably sensor) that the problem is generated.
Any idea how to fix that. Should i send the camera back to Panasonic ?
I recall a post that attributed this to dirty contacts in the camera and/or card. Unfortunately, the artifacts are in the clip. If they're not too big, perhaps a bad-pixel fixing plugin like Reincarnation from Digital Heaven would help remove them.

dunno if it's a dirty anything. I had this problem when copying from P2 cards with the protect switch disabled. when I enabled the protect switch and used shotput pro to do byte for byte verification the same footage imported glitch free. do you have access to the original footage on the P2 card?
