Canon illuminated buttons patent hints at future prosumer DSLR design

Canon has filed a patent that shows illuminated buttons appearing on the back of a prosumer DSLR camera (7D/5D-like design), hinting that the feature may be added to the maker's future models. Details are sparse at this time, but an illustration in the patent shows a series of buttons with what appears to be a row of LEDs behind them.

The patent implies that this tech is about lighting up buttons while simultaneously preventing light leaks, explaining that this particular design: "enables a letter or character on the surface of a button to emit light uniformly [...] without providing any dedicated separate member for light guiding and light shielding, and can prevent light leakage to the inside and outside of the device."
