Newton Ellis are great, but they charge a lot to be honest. I had sand in my camera from a drunken night on the beach, camera was about 350's worth, fix was 70. Worth it at the time. If the camera is out of warranty, don't be scared to have a go yourself. Take apart what you can, clean it up, get one of those cans of air and blast it, quite often the shutter stops closing because of dust and dirt in the mechanism.

Good luck.

My dad used to be the fix it guy for Fairs, when I was a kid we lived next door and he did all the repairs, if you get desperate let me know, he can fix just about anything for the price of a bottle of wine (don't tell him I said that).

And often not to any real advantage because they then use lossy compression to store the images and lose the detail the sensor is capable off - its just a sales war to get the biggest pixel count to impress.

it's the sensor size that makes the difference, as dd says it's just numbers to sell cameras.

Very much so.

The only effect it has on phone cameras or compacts is that it just creates unnecessary larger files on the memory card.

Indeed, the general consensus at IFA 2011 was that the megapixel war is finally over; Jorg Ammon, a rep for Cannon even admitted as much to the BBC on Click:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b014tbg4/Click_10_09_2011/

The report itself begins around the 11 minute mark.

It's been nothing more than a marketing dream, and it's good to see it finally on it's way out.
