SD14 ISO100 noise.....


New Member
Today I read a article about Dead Pixels Test tool:

so, I did a test to my SD14.

[FONT=&quot]First, I close the lens with my lens cap.
Then,I switch to "M" mode , set the shutter speed to 1 second and take a 'black' photo.

The attached jpg is the result, a baddly red-blue-green noise picture.

Is my SD14 Foveon X3 chip [/FONT]badly damaged ?
Anyone had done this test with "Dead Pixels Test Tool" and got similar result?
