Dust spots and compact digital cameras

Hi,

Could someone please inform me if dust getting on the photochip is a problem with compact digital cameras.
I have been told that dust can get in through the casing and settle on the photo chip which can cause all photos to have dust spots on the image and are not worth fixing. Hence the camera becomes worthless.
Any other pros/cons would be nice to know also.

I think you may be thinking of the interchangeable lens type digital cameras and these are pretty pricey any way.

There are ways to get rid of dust on the CCD sensors in such cases, but it is highly unlikely an ordinary camera would be affected.
