Steve Sanders, founder and principal reviewer of Steves-Digicams.com, one of the original big digital camera review sites, announced on Tuesday that the website has been sold to Internet Brands, an internet media company. Internet Brands, which owns a portfolio of more than 100 web properties and e-commerce sites, had revenues of $104 million in 2008, up from $89 million the year before. Steve's Digicams publishes more than 100 digital camera reviews a year. The site was founded 12 years ago, and is known for excellent review summaries and for pioneering the first "Digital Photo of the Day" contest.
The sale price has not been disclosed, but Internet Brands did reveal that it purchased CVTips.com, GrooveJob.com, Steves-Digicams.com, and SellMyCar.com in Q4 2008 for an aggregate price of $2.8 million.
