Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN) today announced it has acquired, a well known authority site for digital camera information and reviews.

"One of the difficulties of operating independently has been the balance between producing content and delivering new site features,” said Phil Askey, founder of "Now, with the support of Amazon, I’ll be able to devote more of my time to expanding and improving our features – such as product reviews and discussion forums while still delivering the high-quality content that our readers have come to expect." will continue to function as a stand-alone operation based in London. The purchase price was not disclosed.

Note to all other camera sites, dpreview will be even harder to compete with.
