Daily Inspiration #433 by Christophe Carlier

Hello Steve,

I am French and I live in Island La Réunion in the Indian Ocean. I am interested in your site since the beginning, and I read it every day.

I started photography there are now seven or eight years, with a Fuji S3Pro and with whom I had a lot of photographic pleasure. Then one day I tried a film camera like my grandfather (an old Pentax), and I struggled to catch my Fuji. But I remained attached to the advantage of digital.

So I looked for a digital camera and hand-held device, and I came across your review of the M8, and my choice was made. Since I had a black M8.2 (for me the most beautiful digital M) and today M9P. My favorite lens its Summicron-c40, the voigtlander 15mm, the Nokton 40mm sc, the Voigtlnder Ultron 28mm f2, and the Canon 50mm f1.2 Ltm.

For 4 years, I took my M in all my travels (Mali, Madagascar, India …)

You will find attached some photos of these trips.
