Amazon Prepares To Shut DPReview, The Camera Review Community Website After 25 Years
Amazon.Com, Inc (NASDAQ: AMZN) prepared to close Digital Photography Review, also known as DPReview offering expert news, reviews, and videos of the latest digital cameras, lenses, accessories, and phones.
DPReview will shut down on April 10 after nearly 25 years of operation.
The closure is part of Amazon's annual operating plan review that it shared earlier this year.

The team's knowledge, insight, and extensive, objective testing contributed to reviews that famously reached near-comical lengths at times, as every flagship model received equal treatment, drawing and retaining a large and dedicated community,
The editorial team is still working on reviews and looking forward to delivering some of its best-ever content.
Amazon bought DPReview in 2007 and relocated the team to Seattle in 2010, closer to its headquarters.
Amazon laid off the team as part of the latest round of cuts at Amazon, which like other companies, has been tightening its belt, TechCrunch reports.
Somehow Amazon never really found a way to capitalize on this one-of-a-kind asset, and DPReview has carried on over the years.
Price Action: AMZN shares traded lower by 0.30% at $100.31 on the last check Wednesday.
