D3300: put away your camera.

so before mirrorless and EVF's no one could take a picture in dark conditions?

Who said that? No one. Your remarks are plain silly.

For years though everyone has complained about cheap penta-mirrors and how they were like looking down a long dark tunnel at reduced size. That is nothing new. Penta-prisms and full coverage EVFs (like on the Em1) are better.

and i quote "D3300: put away your camera" it's all above what you wrote, it's simply a falsehood like many comments in this thread

I meant exactly what I said. A couple of nights ago, I was shooting in a dark park, in the fog, at 2am. With my D300, I would not have been able to see well enough to compose the shots. The EVF in my E-M1 made some pretty good shots possible. Like this one, which I could see in the WYSIWYG viewfinder pretty much just like this before shooting it.
