GearShop - online store created by DPREVIEW

A former member
Post #: 10 has been my go to source for trusted information about photography gear since forever (they were very early onto the Internet).

Their advertising based business model is no longer meeting their needs so they have created an online photography store containing "only products they would recommend to friends and family."

I haven't looked yet but given their credentials as a long time photographer's resource, it is worth passing on the web address:

I read dpreview and thought they were a UK site. But Gearshop has free two-day shipping for US orders. Don't know how they do that but interesting.

Amazon and B&H are hard to beat for price, selection, and return policies. They are highly rated by Consumer Reports and I've had good experiences with them. Best Buy is ok sometimes. There is Craigslist if you don't mind risking your money and safety. Or to support our local economy and sponsor shop at Camera Company.

It looks to me like the gearshop is a front end to Amazon - so prices ought to be same / similar.

That explains it. Should be good deals then.

I have to say that gearshop has a very attractive layout that's easy to navigate. Was curious who they were & yes, they are owned by amazon, & amazon also owns DPR. Hopefully they continue to review all gear fairly without trying to positively rate products sold through GS. I don't think they would since they have built a rep of being "the" go to source for camera gear info.

Amazon owns DPReview? Wow. I had no idea - thanks for digging that up. Anyone know how long ago that happened?

I've been receiving weekly updates from dpreview since 2008! Always the first place I look.

On a similar note just released a sister site selling used gear.

not sure how long they've been owned by amazon, but yes, I did a bit of digging & found that out. I really love the interactive layout they have to show ISO noise & other features the user can input; DPR rocks!
