I have a brand-new DSLR camera (the Canon Rebel SL2/200D) but I have never used a DSLR camera before. Here is the very first photo I have taken with the new camera:
The photo was taken at ISO 100 in manual bulb mode by holding the shutter button down for 2 minutes. No lens was attached. I am indoors with air conditioning running so is a normal room temperature. If you zoom in to 100% magnification though, you can see a number of hot pixels.
What I would like to know is whether this is normal sensor performance for this camera, or should I be worried? I have 57 days left to return the camera if I need to.
I am going to attempt a second identical exposure next to see if the hot pixels are random or in the same spots. Any other suggestions on how to test the DSLR camera sensor while the return policy is still active would be appreciated.
If anyone else has a DSLR camera to make similar images (no lens, 2-minute exposure, ISO 100) so I have something to compare to, that might be helpful.
