The Camera GP awards are sponsored by the Camera Journal Press Club (C.J.P.C. / Japan), which was established in September 1963 and is made up of editors from 12 camera and photography magazines (as of April 2016). The winner of the Editors Award, for which the D500 is this year's recipient, is selected for its popularity, the buzz it has created, and the innovation it showed, as judged by C.J.P.C. members.
The D500 has now won three highly esteemed awards. It was also the recipient of the TIPA Awards 2016's Best APS-C DSLR Expert award and the EISA Awards' European Prosumer DSLR Camera 2016-2017 award.
Judges statement for D500 selection
''The D500 is the long-awaited, new high-end model in Nikon's line of APS-C format SLR cameras. It offers an excellent balance between performance and price, inheriting basic features such as its AF sensor from the D5, Nikon’s 35mm  format ''full-size'' flagship model, yet available at a price the average consumer can afford. The D500 can be considered a camera that makes the APS-C format more appealing with its tough and durable body, high-definition viewfinder, and more than sufficient continuous shooting performance, all worthy of a high-end model. It is equipped with a superior AF system comprised of focus points that cover a broad range of the frame, and capable of sharp and clear capture of moving subjects. These days, though the development of mirrorless cameras is remarkable, the D500 reminds us of the appeal of SLR cameras.''
