My name is Harv, I'm a photographer in the UK, some of you may have seen my guest post on NikonRumors last year about the school under the bridge in Delhi.
Earlier this year I had the chance to go to India again, these opportunities don't come around too often so I went. On a side note, if you do get the chance to travel and see new places, whether close or far, then just go. Do things while you can, convincing yourself that you can go another time usually means you never actually go.
The Nikon D500 got a gold award at dpreview (91%). Their conclusion:
"The D500 is the most well-rounded DSLR we've ever tested, and among the very best. Every one of us who has picked it up, regardless of which brands we've most often shot, has been impressed by its autofocus system's wide coverage and ability to find and follow a subject. If you need this, the large viewfinder, solid build and the ability to just keep shooting, then the D500 is peerless. It's not cheap but it looks like pretty good value if you look at it as a huge chunk of the D5's capabilities for a fraction of the money.
If you don't need that cutting-edge high-speed performance, cameras such as the D7200 offer essentially the same image quality, and if you want to shoot video there are better choices, too. But as an APS-C sports and wildlife camera, the D500 is without rival, and that puts in on the top of our awards podium."
