After announcing the death of DPReview back in March, and many rumors, it seems that DPReview has found a new owner:
We’re thrilled to share the news that Gear Patrol has acquired DPReview. Gear Patrol is a natural home for the next phase of DPReview’s journey,
There a reassurance that the same team would be running it with the same editorial direction.

Long time no posting.
Today, 21st of March, came the sad news that DPReview is closing 10th of April 2023.
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.
Apparently it costs too much for the biggest cloud company in the world to even keep read-only (ie no content added).
Bravo to Amazon for destroying 25 years+ of content. They bought the site in 2007.
