Spitsbergen (Svalbard) - hlavooij

This is part 2 of 2 of my photo adventure 'from Sahara to the North Pole', a (photo) trip cut in two parts to totally different parts of the world: the dusty and warm Sahara of Morocco and the cold, humid North Pole of Svalbard (click here for part 1, "The Sahara")

At the end of February 2018, I went to Svalbard (Spitsbergen) to 'field test' Nikon's youngest offspring of the Nikon DSLR-family - the D850 - in arctic, moist and in general harsh conditions. Not a technical test or review (and not even endorsed by Nikon), just a report of the performance of the D850 in real life. This report is published as a blog on the website of a huge Dutch photography retailer, CameraNU.nl (link will follow as soon as possible).

update April 2018: During my first visit to Svalbard (February, 2018), I did not see any polar bears because they were waiting to hunt for seals at the east coast. End of April/begin of May, I will travel again to Svalbard and will go on a multiple day trip to the east coast. I'll hope to see seals, hunting polar bears and foxes.
