Please note that the program is tested only with Panoramas created with the combination of PhotoStitch / QuickTime VR, using it with QTVR files created in an other way, may not give the required result.

This is a utility that was written for the Coolpix 2500 but works for many other Nikon Coolpix cameras that connect to the host computer via USB and act as a Mass Storage Device (removable drive.) Cameras tested Coolpix 2500, 995, 4500, 5000, 5700. Utility can read existing defect map, remap defective (hot) pixels and black (dead) pixels - not all functions work with all cameras, see the author's website as this program is being constantly updated. Most of the text at the website is in Russian but there are links to DP Review's forum where this program has been extensively discussed and its use fully explained. It is FREE and I have used it on my Coolpix 995 with amazing results - even my 2 and 4 second exposures are now free of all hot pixels.

PixelZap removes "hot pixels" from digicam images

Corrects hot pixels caused by long exposures, it will automatically detect, and correct hot pixels. Also corrects hot pixels caused by a defective or aging CCD and corrects only those pixels that are specified by the user. PixelZap uses low-level JPEG compression/decompression techniques to resave a JPEG image with essentially no image quality degradation. It also retains EXIF data in the corrected image, and its default detection and correction algorithms search for hot pixels in 2x2 clusters. This 2x2 clustering occurs because of the way color information is recorded by digital cameras, and allows PixelZap to accurately detect problem pixels, and lowers the chance of PixelZap falsely detecting bright points in the image that are not caused by hot-pixels. PixelZap is a command-line (DOS) program designed to be as small (approx. 130KB) and fast as possible. It is also available as a Windows program (PZapGUI) for those who prefer a graphical version. PixelZap and PZapGUI are released as shareware, but will operate for an unlimited time without registration. However, the unregistered versions are limited to processing images no larger than 640x480.
