Coolpix Pixel Remapper Utility for Windows XP, 2000This 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.
