    Canon shows off new concept cameras at CES 2020

    Here are the buttons illuminating on the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III

    True, Olympus had backlit buttons on their entry level DSLR E-620 nearly a decade back. Even I end up using a headlamp(since I dont shoot landscapes/Astro I can get away with normal white led to setup camera for camera trap) while working in dark.

    OpticalLimits Reviews the Canon RF 35mm f/1.8 IS Macro STM
