Calibration

The Canon SX7 can lead a sort of double life as both business projector and home theater projector. But in order to do so, we had to create two separate calibrations. In fact, you’re forced into certain choices, because the menu changes depending on the connection type. Computer inputs have one menu, while video device inputs have another menu.

In the charts below, you’ll first see the calibration settings we used for video and AV device inputs. We used "Movie" as the picture mode.

Setting Default Calibrated
Mode Movie Movie
Brightness 0 -5
Contrast 0 0
Sharpness 0 0
Fan Mode Quiet Normal

The second chart details the calibration settings for computer devices. There is no "Movie" mode in this setting. Instead, we found "Picture" mode to have the most accurate colors, though certainly not the brightest display (the two rarely go hand-in-hand).

Video Modes

There are a number of preset modes on the Canon SX7.
