DPReview is Closing April 10th After Almost 25 Years of Operation

The photography business has been contracting for quite some time now, and it looks like the contraction has claimed its biggest victim yet, DPReview. It’s unfortunate to see them go, and the DPRTV guys will likely start their own channel in the not-too-distant future so I am sure it won’t be the last we hear from the crew at DPR. We wish them the best of luck in the future.

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.

Scott Everett
General Manager – DPReview.com
