Canon SX7 Mark II
The REALiS is about as bright and powerful as compact projectors get.
- The Canon SX7 Mark II is a relatively high-end LCoS projector.
- Measures 10.6 × 4.6 × 13.4 inches and 10.6 pounds—not the most portable projector.
The Canon SX7 Mark II has a small foot towards the front-bottom that adjusts up and down about 1.5 inches. The projector can, of course, also be permanently mounted, by way of several screw holes on the bottom.
The Canon SX7 Mark II uses a 275 watt NSH mercury lamp, rated for 2000 / 3000 hours of use (the latter being in "Quiet mode"). Model name RS-LP04, the lamp can be replaced by Canon for a pricy $579.

Setting up the Canon SX7 Mark II could not be easier: plug in the power and input cable, aim it at the wall, and hit the "Auto Set" button. The projector uses a built-in camera located on the front of the projector to analyze the projection surface and make the best color, contrast, brightness, and keystone settings. The results are remarkably accurate.
The Canon SX7 Mark II is a large rectangle with a blindingly bright light shooting out of the front. That said, it's attractive for a projector. The lines are clean and smooth, tapered where possible to make it look less... like a large rectangle with light shooting out the front.
