Due to awful wether I started fooling with my new E-330 indoors and with common everyday household objects like a bust of Lenin and an album on Soviet Art I tried to create something ? la Sotsrealism. Please, don?t take this as a political statement or manifest;)

Like the picture ....But....

Pekka I don't know what I am seeing ,there is something you should take care of I think.
There are quite a few red and blue dots on this picture, is it a failer of the sensor or something ells.

Fons, you must have a very sharp display to notice those spots even in this low resolution web-version of this photo. I noticed them only when I magnified the photo in E-330?s LCD display about 4-6x. I was a bit worried, but not much because guarantee expires only in March 2008;)
Eventually those spots appeared to be noise. Exposure was 20 sec and for some stupid reason I did not realize to switch Noise reduction on. Last night I took some test shots of dark objects in low light using some 20-40 sec. exposures. Without NR those "funny" red and blue spots appeared in every shot, but with NR ON they disappeared absolutely COMPLETELY.
I had to confess, that at first I did not recognize them as noise, since in my 5060 noise never appeared in such "funny" form... probably due to different type of sensor.
