Is it worth a $500 estimated bill to fix a shutter on a digital body - Canon D60 in this instance - or will fixing a shutter even be worth the cost and it would be more cost effective in just buying a brand new digital body?

In this intstance, the D60 body is 25 months old and has shot probably over 50,000 images in that time span. So, is $500 approximate to completely fix or replace the shutter?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated... thanks!

Sadly, if the camera was working it's probably only worth around $500 on a good day. A used 10D can be had for $700 to $800 right now. It's probably not worth replacing the shutter.

Now you have me worried about my own D60. I think it's only got around 20,000 on it's shutter though.

It's never worth replacing / repairing old technology. The D60 was a fine dog that has had its day. The firmware in the camera in ancient in software years. I like the suggestion that you can replace it with a slightly used 10D -- they're going for a very good price right now.

I now pray to the camera gods that my 10D last at least another 20,000. I gotta pay off more of my gear before I can buy anymore! LOL

I would say scap the D60 also. Heck I am seriously looking at the new Rebel and making my 10D my backup!
