Hello, everyone, I'm using Canon EOS 5D Mark III how to get rid the of stuck/dead pixels. After I bought my new Canon EOS 5D Mark III and took some blue hour and night photos I found out that I have a bright white pixel near the center of the image. I found out that the RAW converter fixes this problem but JPG files are still an issue. This pixel is a stuck pixel, or sometimes it called dead pixel. Usually stuck pixel is bright, while the dead pixel is black.

To remove them from your image just use the spot healing brush

Initiating a Manual Cleaning, without actually doing a manual cleaning, may reset the stuck pixel. For an EOS 5D Mark III:

Select <G0112291.gif> tab, [Sensor cleaning], then press the <SET> button. On the next screen, select [Clean manually], then press the <SET> button. Wait ~30 seconds and turn off the camera.

This should be easy enough to automate with an action, no need to do this manually every time if it is always in the same position.

People below are making suggestions on how to fix the dead pixels in post.  Fair enough, but if you're doing timelapse for a video you want to fix the problem IN CAMERA.  Retouching hundreds of frames by hand is not practical -
