Data recovery on a digital camera?

I had a picture taken of me and a friend, and I did transfer it to the computer before I deleted off the camera, but it's gone from the computer so there is no getting it that way. Is there anywhere I can go to get that picture back? Honestly, right now I don't care about the price, I just want that picture back. It means a lot to me. :/

The camera was an Aiptek DV3100, and the camera never got much use out of it anyways, but I don't know if it was enough to override it anyways. Help. :(

You can smile now :) Digiral camera data recovery can help to get back your lost photos, videos and audio files, no matter you lost them due to deletion, format, or other reasons like device corruption and inaccessible. You had ever transferred the photo to your computer from the digital camera, so you can try to recover it either from your computer or camera. Both are the same, as long as they are not overwritten by new photos or files.

Referring to the overwriting,  this is very important: Don't use your camera to take new photos, specifically the storage card inserted in the camera. And don't save new data to the partition where you lost your photos on the computer. New files will reuse the space that your lost photos occupied to overwrite them. In another word, the success of digital camera photo recovery depends on the protection of your card or disk, to a large extend.
