It’s with some surprise and sadness that I found a post on DCViews, which I thought was celebrating it’s 10 years of being on the web, but instead, it’s a notice explaining that they have decided to close the website, citing market saturation when it comes to digital photography. You can read their message here.

“Today, exactly ten years ago, we launched our DCViews website to support you in finding your way in the uncharted but wonderful world of digital photography. Not only the digital photography was in its infancy then, but the Internet was far from what we see today, in terms of user interface as well as performance.”

DCViews was one of the first dedicated digital photography / digital camera websites on the web, and has always been an invaluable resource when you wanted to find information of cameras, with an excellent database of both new and old cameras. It will surely be missed. We wish the owners all the best for the future.

    Towards the end of 2011 DCViews was taken over and remains active, albeit under new management.

    The site is currently in the process of redesign and some period of slow update, and related disruption, however the new owner is keen to not disappoint the existing audience, while also looking to attract new visitors and strengthen the community.

    As the newowner says on the homepage:

    “I know change can be difficult and I promise to keep an open ear and please let me know of any questions, concerns or ideas that you may have.”

    So, DCViews has not gone away, but is undergoing a transition that will hopefully bring benefit to all who use the site.
