Amazon.com announced on Monday that it has acquired Digital Photography Review, also known as Dpreview.com, a London-based site that specializes in reviews, information, news and discussion forums pertaining to the digital-camera market. Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
Jeff Bezos, the online megaretailer's founder and CEO, said in a statement that Digital Photography Review is "by far the most authoritative source anywhere for straight talk about new digital cameras." Dpreview, which was founded in 1998 as a hobby by Phil Askey and, according to the site, now employs several other editors, plans to continue to operate independently. Amazon has not otherwise stated specific plans for its new purchase.
