Why this petition matters

“I like having the digital camera on my smart phone, but I also like having a dedicated camera for when I want to take real pictures.” — Jeff Bezos.



DPReview is more than just a 25years old photography review website.

It is the "Wikipedia", the "Tom's Guide", the "Facebook", the "Instagram", the "Youtube", the "Tiktok" and the spread of the truth in photography to millions of people and future generations across the world. 

STOP Amazon from closing! 




Amazon will be shutting down DPReview, the trusted and comprehensive camera reviews website, as part of the 18,000 job cuts it announced in January. According to an announcement posted on the site, the DPReview team will continue publishing reviews and other content until April 10th, after which “the site will be locked, with no further updates made.”

The site, started in 1998, has become a cornerstone of camera journalism through thorough and thoughtful reviews. If you ever researched DSLRs, mirrorless cameras, or lenses, you’ve almost certainly come across its content. Personally, I spent hours pouring over the outlet’s charts, image samples, and notes on autofocus performance before I bought my first big camera, a Nikon D500.

Unfortunately, it seems like the almost 25 years’ worth of content may only be available for a little while longer. The announcement says that the site will remain “available in read-only mode for a limited period afterwards,” which makes it sound like the entire site could be removed afterward, erasing an important part of modern camera history from the internet.
