    I was wondering if the d7500 for example lets me upload the images for backup online?

    Not from a practical point of view.
    If you shot a LOT of RAW pictures, it could take a LONG time to upload those large files.
    LONG as in more than an hour.
    It takes me more than an hour from my desktop at 6MBs, the max my ISP will upload.

    I take all my images from my D500 and D750, and use my back up provider, iDrive, to handle the task.

    My preferred method is to set a time (say 4:00AM), for the back up program to run. I can leave the CPU running at night, sans screen, and the upload will happen in the off-hours, where internet speeds are faster.

    I can download image files from my cameras at any time, and I know that the files will upload later. I also back up the files to an external hard drive for a local save. That runs separately from my iDrive account, and the local back up takes up very little CPU time. I also don't delete any files from my camera discs until I know that the off-loaded files are "safe".
