Canon SX7 Mark II
The REALiS is about as bright and powerful as compact projectors get.
Ergonomics & Durability
The remote control that comes with the Canon SX7 is much smaller than an average TV remote, but the norm for a projector remote. Unfortunately, the remote control that shipped with our particular projector didn't seem to work. We could only hold it and guess as to how it might function in a more perfect world.
Button Layout & Use
The buttons on the remote are laid out in a sensible manner. Some of the button layout actually matches the arrangement of the buttons on the projector itself, making it easy to remember how to make simple changes to focus, keystone, etc.
Towards the bottom of the remote are a series of buttons that can emulate certain functions that you'd normally need a mouse for: page up/down, mute, right-click, and more. As we said before, the remote that we received with our particular Canon SX7 did not function, so we can only assume that they work as described in the manual.
Programming & Flexibility
The remote control that ships with the Canon SX7 cannot be programmed for other devices.
