    Official "The DCRP is closing" thread

    As indicated in this news item, I will be no longer be updating the Digital Camera Resource Page website after the end of this year. I will be moving over to DPReview, where I will be a Senior Editor. Believe me, it was not an easy decision. A extra big thank you to our loyal forum members for their support and feedback.

    I will be sending e-mails out to everyone about how they can join a private "DCRP Forum" on dpreview once that's set up in a few months.

    Feel free to post your thoughts and memories of the DCRP in this thread.

    Best,
    Jeff

    funniest thread of all time.

    Don's rabid Sony fanboyism followed by incessant whining about Sony not having developed a dslr that could teleport you to mars or not having the nuclear launch codes was great stuff.

    Coldrain arguing with anything and anyone.

    Oh, my. I recall his last postings asking about how far away to be to get the two heads in the frame at the presidential election with some Olympus lens (probably fixed variable "aperure", no doubt)...Like you can' t just shoot down the street at a stop sign and figure it out?

    I actually said "bye, bye" over a year ago, but bye, bye - again.

    Sad news Jeff but I must say not entirely unexpected.
    Thanks for the ride over the last 7 or 8 years that I have known about this site. I have not always agreed with your reviews but I do believe that you have always been honest and presented things as you see them.
    All the best for the future maybe we will catch up somewhere else in the virtual world.

    Jeff,
    Thank you for dcresource. This is the only photography site that I join and have learned a lot from it. In fact, most things I learned regarding photography I learned from this forum.
    Good luck with your new endavour.

    The end of this year. I start at DPReview in the second half of February, but who knows when I'll actually publish a review.

    Jeff, A begrudging congratulations. I feel happy for the opportunity for you and a bit sad that this is ending. I wish this place had monetized better but I guess it's the nature of the net to have many fly bye problem solution seekers with only a small % hanging around.

    Many many thank you's for providing the hang out for all these years. I've learnt a lot here and will miss it. My favourite memory is your D300 review that single handedly put me on the Nikon path, no it's Rooz telling me to crank my iso, no it's Lukas' seascapes, no it's watching Faisal's progress, no it's SSil talking me into shooting Raw, no it's K1W1 inciting me to buy the 70-200. Hell you get the idea, too much good stuff to single anything out.

    Fare well

    All the best, you did give hints about the future of this site and I'm glad that you found a solution. My first "serious" camera purchase, the Canon A610, was based on your Canon A620 review.

    While this site won't be updated obviously, will it sort of be "archived" and still exist?
