Most people are familiar with the top three Italian tourist cities; Rome, Venice and Florence. Far fewer know what Ravenna has to offer!

One would think that the IBIS (In Body Image Stabilization) of the X-H1 would be essential to shoot low light images without a tripod. While the X-H1 definitively allowed me to shoot handheld at a lower shutter speed, the small 700,-USD X-T100 did a remarkable job as can be seen in the image below. Expect a full First Look review on the X-T100 within the next week.
