It looks like DPReview.com will be a victim of Amazon's cuts and reorganization. DPReview.com is now set to go offline on April 10, 2023.
After nearly 25 years of operation, DPReview will be closing in the near future. This difficult decision is part of the annual operating plan review that our parent company shared earlier this year.
The site will remain active until April 10, and the editorial team is still working on reviews and looking forward to delivering some of our best-ever content.
Everyone on our staff was a reader and fan of DPReview before working here, and we’re grateful for the communities that formed around the site.
Thank you for your support over the years, and we hope you’ll join us in the coming weeks as we celebrate this journey.https://www.dpreview.com/news/5901145460/dpreview-com-to-close
DPReview.com has been a big part of the community since basically the beginning of the digital photography revolution. This isn't good news at all. These are massive shoes to fill in our little media niche.
There is always the possibility of someone acquiring the content and site from Amazon.
Like a part of my youth falling by the wayside.
Well not youth really, but younger years at least.
And that’s not even going into editors refusing to admit mistakes, like them manually boosting the green tint on the EOS R and then complaining about a green tint. When being pointed to the EXIF they went into full denial mode.
I hope to see Chris and Jordan doing a similar thing together in the future!
I haven't used their services directly, so I can't say that I'll gonna miss them.
Of course it is always sad, when a business shuts down and people lose their jobs :(
Yet, sad :cry:for the employees.
I just hope they either get acquired by another company or find some way to archive the website and forums. There's so much great knowledge and discussion on there.
The few times I tried, it seemed like they didn't have a good way to just see what was available for a given system, such as "just EF" without bogging down in the EF-S and EF-M systems.
Tip of the hat to CanonRumors, as it's largely just RF at this point which is all I need.
