    Eadweard Muybridge, Horse in Motion, 1877. Used 21 cameras to answer the question of whether a horse ever was in motion with all four feet off the ground.

    Post Daugerre but not by much.

    I was going to suggest Eadweard Muybridge’s work as a possible candidate, but his rigs used the Collodion process.

    Also, I suspect that dedicating a whole camera for each burst frame is stretching the definition a bit far.

    Just trying to put the "as old as photography itself" to bed. That would extend to what, the 1820s or earlier (cf Schulze).

Perhaps not if your camera can use a much higher ISO speed without detrimental image noise, but that capability favors more expensive cameras with larger sensors.
    Not sure why you wrote that as an answer to my post, because I was talking about the technical aspects of a DSLR view-finder, not its usage.

    Also, with optical image stabilization of modern system cameras, shake due to not using the view-finder is not an issue anymore. I stopped using it myself years ago, since I wear glasses and could hardly make the dioptric adjustment of any view-finder showing me a sharp picture.

    anticipating any discernible rhyme or reason to what gets posted here will leave you feeling lonely and afraid every time.
