Dead pixel in the sensor using night photo exposure

[ New ]

I used yesturday my gopro7 doing long exposure pictures(night mode)and i realize in all my pictures i have 3/4 dead pixel(some are brighter than others and we cant see all of them very well in each pictures/but i have a big one top left corner) affecting the picture in the same area so i guess its the sensor,when i use the normal photo mode i dont have them,but im not super happy since i love the night mode/long exposure,what can i do?thanks

Do not get a Hero 8 at all then nighlapse got red  & blue spots all over    hot pixil , sensor, check with gopro if they  see it as a concern or if a fix is in the future.

 a few things to keep in mind before  you can determine its a issue?  lens spotless, humidity in air, moisture.   if it is the sensor and hotpixils not lighting up. best to talk with a gopro rep they can  find a team member that may have a answer.
