Amazon acquires dpreview.com

DPreview.com has been my favourite site for all things camera wise. Their reviews are excellent, very detailed and helped me sort through the millions of cameras available and get down to the one I like.

It seems the they have been bought out by Amazon, I hope this doesn’t effect their reveiwing ability and stay a bit independent from Amazon trying to push certain brands and models. I hope they have made a mint with the sale.

We’re proud and excited to announce that Dpreview has been acquired by the worlds leading online retailer, Amazon.com. Started as hobby site in 1998, dpreview.com has grown to be the number one destination for anyone interested in digital cameras and digital photography. Each month dpreview.com has seven million unique visitors (over 22 million sessions) who read over 120 million pages. “We’ve worked very hard over the last eight years to deliver consistently high quality content to our readers”, founder Phil Askey said. “It will be fantastic to be able to expand and build on that without compromising our quality or independence. With the support and resources of Amazon we can achieve this.”

    I second that – great site hope it stays that way. Some of the best reviews of cameras that I can’t afford.
