sadly, amazon decided to stop with sponsoring dpreview and in a month the site will be taken offline.

Yeah, quite a loss if they really take all the content down. I referred to their camera database quite often, and the reviews were always a good place to get an overview of almost any camera in the last 25 years. Kinda surprising there wasn't a business case for keeping the brand / site alive, even with less new content, but I guess Amazon doesn't care.

Some of the very early CHDK history was there too.

a silver lining?
it seems they got a lot of feedback possibly leading to an archive of dpreview

dpreview acquired by Gear Patrol

Time will tell how how it shakes out, but it looks like the plan is to continue more or less as before with many of the same people. Certainly better than just shutting it down
