    I may be asking in the wrong place, and if I am, I apologize...

    I have a black macbook that I want to put on ebay, but there is a very small "blemish" on the screen that I would like to take pictures of for the auction - I am assuming it is a dead pixel...

    The only camera I have is a finepix s1000fd - not exactly a high end DSLR, and I don't have any special lenses or filters. Is there a way to get a good photo of that spot without the image coming off so distorted?

    I thought perhaps setting it to a solid color screen would help, but I still end up with just the "rainbow effect" that usually shows up when you try to photograph a screen...

    Any help would be very appreciated. Google keeps trying to tell me how to take a screen grab, and not an actual photo...

    Just list that there is a dead pixel. Take the best photo you can. Most people who buy a cheap macbook w/dead pixels probably will just replace the LCD and resell it for more.
