    Hello- first post so go easy! I'm a new P2V+ owner and have had it up maybe 10 times. I've been experimenting with still photography and videos and am a bit disappointed in the noise I'm seeing. Based on other videos and stills I've seen, I am beginning to think my bird might be defective. I have tried a different SD card with no change. I'm including some video screen grabs when you can see the noise (red, green, blue speckles) and diagonal lines on bright areas (beach sand, boats, etc...) as well as a still showing the top part of the image having some corruption. Am I doing something wrong here?

    Thanks for your help

    -Tim

    There's definitely something wrong, one thing you might look at is the anti-filcker setting.
    Those stripes on over-exposed areas are particularly strange.
    The coloured dots almost look like dead pixels on the sensor, you might expect the odd one and put up with it, but there are far too many if it is that.

    Yes- they (the spots) flicker and the videos are really not presentable. I might just send it back to amazon and let them send me a new one. I was hoping for for an easy fix...oh well

    Wow that camera has got to be defective. I would send it back for exchange.

    Looks like a slew of hot pixels on the sensor. I'd send it back too.

    It's going back for sure. Oddly, I was able to get one good video without noise but the next 4 I took all were a mess.
