So, some news about legendary photographic authority DPReview, which has become a victim of Amazon’s greed and dumbness.
A few weeks ago, news broke that DPReview will shut down and some of the staff migrate to PetaPixel. But now there is some hope to preserve the camera and lens tests, the comparison tool and some other stuff. That is: DPReview will become an archive and stay online for the foreseeable future. For how long no one knows. But they will even post some new content while they work to become an archive. Scott Everett, DPReview’s General Manager, wrote:
We’ve received a lot of questions about what’s next for the site. We hear your concerns about losing the content that has been carefully curated over the years, and want to assure you that the content will remain available as an archive.
We’ve also heard that you need more time to access the site, so we’re going to keep publishing some more stories while we work on archiving.
At least that.
