After 25 Years, DPReview.com Will Be Closing April 10th

DPreview Closes V2

Like many of you, I’m sure you have visited DPreview over the years. I sure have. They have been an excellent information resource for the stills camera market, and the forums were also very popular. While they did tend to be a bit snarky, they were also a great resource for help and sharing images.

Dear readers,

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.

DPreview shuts down

Amazon, back in 2007, bought DPreview. Things have changed greatly in the website space, but it’s not dead. In 2018 my friend Jordan Drake and Chris Nicoles joined DPreview from their very successful YouTube channel, The Camera Store, and helped grow the DPreview channel. To date, that channel has over 410,000 subscribers. Hopefully, they can acquire the channel as they have made it what it is today and continue to do excellent camera reviews. I hope the best for both. I’m sure they will continue to create great content.


Looks like the boys are moving to Petapixel.

DPReview.com will remain active until April 10. After that, it will enter a read-only mode for a limited period then the website will go offline. This is very sad as the forums are loaded with great information that will be relevant and helpful for many years. To see it all go away is terrible. Plus, the tests and databases on camera and lens reviews too. All will be gone.

Amazon has been in the news a lot, announcing layoffs and restructuring. This is clearly part of that plan. Hoping the best for all the contributors in their future endeavors.

As for Newsshooter.com? Not to worry, we are going strong and not going anywhere.
