The REALiS SX80 Mark II's new 1.5x zoom lens suppresses the distortion of images to the maximum extent. Made possible by a lens design technology Canon has accumulated in the past, the new REALiS SX80 Mark II is able to project images more faithfully.
The lens also features a 10:0 lens offset, which maintains the lower edge of projected images matching the optical axis of the lens. This permits projection of high-quality images without the deterioration in image quality caused by keystone correction.
You can easily change the screen size to accommodate various venues and/or applications. It is now easier to set up the projector perpendicular to the screen without having to tilt the projector, or use the keystone correction.
Without 10:0 Lens Shift
With 10:0 Lens Shift
Keystone correction required when angle is changed. Image obstructed by table when projector is moved back.
No keystone correction required when projector is moved straight back. Simple positioning with image quality preserved.
Happy with it
Accurate color, nice feature set. Compact design is very convenient and makes for a very portable, powerful projector. Fairly quiet and cool. Image is best when used indoors. Input panel is sufficient but requires custom adapter (included) for component and there is no optical audio / toslink audio output. The adjustable front height adjuster is a weak design and prone to cracking. Overall, I am happy with the projector.
