stuck/hot pixels

10 May

i was bored. I had my camera in close proximity. So the most next natural thing i did was to fiddle with it. Tried to do light painting. Hence, i set my shutter to 15secs and put my cam on timer. Here are the result of my wuliaoness.


well, they’re not exactly pretty but what alarmed me the most was what i noticed on my lcd few minutes later.

U see, my room was pitch black, and i noticed a teeny bright spot on the lcd. I tried capturing a dark pic hoping that the spot wont show in the piccie. It wasnt that noticeable in the piccie but its there.

I was worried that i’ll have dead pixels. Ran a sample pic thru a diagnostic test and found that i have a couple of hot pixels.

I hope they wont morph into dead pixels.

well, in case u guys are wondering what the heck i was jibbering about, hot pixel is a permanently lit (white) pixel and is best seen against a dark background. On the other hand, stuck pixel will usually be most visible against a black background, where it will appear red, green, blue, cyan, magenta, or yellow, although stuck red, green, or blue pixels are most common. I am keeping my fingers crossed that these will disappear with time as reported.

They weren’t there when i first purchased my cam and i know theres no reason i should fret over this. Nor should anyone. It happens to everyone who owns anything with lcd. It could be a manufacturing defect or could also appear over time due to long exposures, high iso or high temperature. It should only bother you if these bright specks appear on your pictures or is very prominent even without zooming. U should however send ur camera back to the shop if u stumble across any dead pixels. Dead pixels are pixels that are unlit and is obvious against a white background. Best would be checking ur cam right after purchasing it. Better be safe than sorry:)

i just so happen to stumble across these hot&stuck pixels and it bothers me a teeny weeny bit. The guy in the cam shop told me that im the first customer ever to enquire about these..paiseh.. he must be thinking ‘why lah this girl so particular?can snap pics cukupla’

But it doesnt hurt to check right.

can u spot the stuck pixels? (~75% zoomed)

few of my hot pixels (~75% zoomed)

i love my tutor for being not prejudiced nor angry with me for performing way below par for my biopharm class test. im not talking about making 5 mistakes and making a hooha out of it like some people do.

thank god he didnt give me the lecture on how-sponsored-students-are-supposed-to-maintain-good-academicrecords
-throughout-all-the-semesters. thanks for being understanding. i was already close to tears.

i must say that my consistency depends alot on 50% luck and 50% memory. on that fateful morning of exam, my amethyst bracelet broke, mr. cockroach said hi to me and my stomach was churning from food poisoning. i felt jinxed the whole day. yes, im superstitious. but i went on and faced the paper with a smile cos i filled my mind with thoughts of going home the next day. but still feel a tinge of jinx nevertheless. it didnt go away. so it was 10%luck left and prolly 35% memory. that totally didnt help.

i tried to be optimistic. ive not seen good results in a while. im afraid that the happiness i had from better results in the past would not be enough to sustain me emotionally if things are still going downhill.

i keep telling myself to buck up, study hard if not HARDER. a fren told me she feels worthless cos she feels like shes the weakest academically among some of her peers. i gave her the do-not-compare-yourself-to-others-cos-u-are-perfect-in-your-own-ways speech to console her but i was actually trying to comfort myself?

i duno man. didnt mean to be emo. just a class test anyways. just that the amount of effort i put in was not justified. you dont normally get to reap what u sow do you?

home for study break??

16 Feb

the thought of the impending stretch of long study break never fail to depress me. should i go home for the whole 2 1/2 weeks or not?

pros:

  • dont have to worry about meals
  • i dont go online so often
  • no homesickness
  • have my sister to slave around for me 😛

cons:

  • tv-major distraction
  • im afraid that i wont be able to adapt studying in a diff place..im not one of those who can study anywhere at anytime 😦
  • i’ll be the only one studying at home

im so homesick its depressing if im required to write about depression on monday i can definitely write few pages long on a real case scenario.

i cant stand it when…
  • some people thinks they have the upper hand in EVERY decision that has to be made just because they have the means to do so or because they think theyre betrothed with the ‘title’ to do so. pls, i really dun need another mother/principal/dicipline teacher that sets the rules and expects everyone to adhere to it without prior discussion.
  • i see some of my peers bellitling others academically just because theyre sponsored by the government and hence ‘suppose to be’ one of the smartest in the country. i am not that soleh but this irritates me alot. it may be subconscious but its OBVIOUS. everybody is made equal and hence one may be better than you in things that u might not have even heard of. its not always about the A’s or dean’slist or godknowswhatshit award that they present to you for ‘self-saticfactions’s’ sake.
  • certain people CONSTANTLY coming to me and sound his/her worries about future event thats not even taking place yet. yes, i worry too but i do not need to be reminded EVERYDAY. and i know, its a good thing to think further but i dont think sounding your worries all the time will do anything to help at all. i dont even know if i will make it through today so the last thing i need to hear is all this blablabla. moderation is the key.
  • people do not know how to take no for an answer. do i have to say yess all the time just to make you happy. yes, the truth always hurt but pls act like an adult and deal with it.
  • your hipocrisy shines so BRIGHT its blinding u turn me away. u may think its subtle but its not.

sorry for my rantings. just cant help it when im irritated.may sound trivial but im just super irritated. i think its PMS-post menstrual syndrome. or pre-exam syndrome. or current-homesick syndrome. so not healthy.
