finally back after a long drive! I went back to the store took it back, explained and displayed examples. I got my money back and i went to another store which had them in stock..
I tested two cameras they had. one was worst, the other was much much better!
No other stores in the 200mi radius has this camera in stock and for some wild reason they cant get it for about 2 weeks. WIERD! one shop told me about some photo op going on last week or in the coming week and thats why they cant get them... what ever that meant.
Anyway, Ive bought another rebel... This one only has 9 hot pixles that i can count at 30 sec ISO 1600
Im starting to think there are no perfect rebels out there? --other than the one used at dpreview.
ah well. i guess i can live with 9 pixles. they are not that prominent. we'll see how much they bug me in the next few days.
see the image of the exchanged camera:
*later on this same day*
i shot the same dark image at iso 100, NO STUCK PIXIES! YIPPY! i guess im happy now
