This site is FANTASTIC for any and ALL digital photo needs!

D P Review is comprised of less than 10 staff members that review EVERY digital camera and lens known to man - even if it isn't slated to come out for months.

The reviews on this site are amazing and usually span 20-30 pages, from body and design specification to sample images shot on the camera. There is an easy drop-down menu to get you where you need to be. In addition to technical info, they also compare cameras to other cameras by other brands, which is great.



I really love looking at the photo tests they do! Here's one that compares different ISO settings.


If you are a professional, you will love D P Review because it goes into INSANE depth - I don't know half of the things they touch upon on the site and I know an intermediate amount of photo terms! Still, if you are a beginner, you will find information there for your level too - it really is a great site for all.

I used this site to choose both digital cameras I've purchased (the now-extinct Canon Digital Rebel and the Canon 400D XTi), and it also was extremely helpful when I had to pick a lens for the XTi. The reviewers will help you decide which lenses are worth the money (they can be pricey- so buy wisely!) and which fall short. They also are helpful in finding out which lenses can be transferred from a manual camera to your digital.

I actually had no idea that the site had been purchased by Amazon (in 2007) until I wrote this review...hopefully the site remains as unbiased as it always was!

I also didn't know it was taken over by Amazon. Still great site...I use it when I'm in the market for cameras and lens.

I'm not into professional photography but my sis is. So, will let her check it out instead. Would be useful to add the link to your review as well as I was looking for it and only found it under the wiki section.

I'm no pro photographer, but I still love this site!  Had no idea that it was acquired by Amazon, but I haven't noticed any major changes.  Thanks for reviewing this! :)
