Recently I traveled to Mauritania to test out Leica’s new X-U shockproof, dust and water sealed expedition camera. From train hopping through the Sahara desert to exploring shipwrecks on the coast, Mauritania ended up being the perfect place to test a camera built to withstand harsh conditions. To see the whole story, visit the Leica camera blog or visit my Projects page to see some behind the scenes images of my adventure.
