    In case you hadn't heard the news, one of the biggest and longest running photo forums has announced its date of death - 4/10/23.

    Fun point-of-fact - I met Tim on those boards - posting photos of Disney and PMing back and forth on the idea he had of starting a Disney photo forum.

    The times, they are a' changin.

    That's a shame. That was my go-to-place for reviews when I was shopping for new gear. It's just another sad example of a megacorporation buying out worthwhile companies and shutting them down.

    Good news everyone: The stories of DP Review's death are premature. In June, 2023, the site was acquired by Gear Patrol and is alive and well.

    Crazy news - I haven't been on the internet forums very much the past two months - very busy with an office move, vacation, and dealing with assisted living search for a relative...finally checked back in today to find that news about Dpreview.
