Ambient light can cause changes in the accuracy of the colors being projected. The REALiS SX80 Mark II's Photo Mode allows you to make adjustments to the projectors color temperature and color level*, based on the lighting condition of the room. This feature makes it possible to accurately reproduce color, and provide faithful reproduction of changes in contrast- even on a large screen inside a bright room. Images projected onto the screen are as close to the actual work as possible.
Without Photo Mode
With Photo Mode
The dark section looks blackish and intensity levels are not assigned accurately.
Specific details of shapes and difference in colors can be visible to the naked eye.
Fine adjustments can also be made in accordance with various environment lights, such as incandescent lamp, fluorescent lamp, and brighter and darker room conditions. Accordingly, accurate image reproduction can be made on a large screen, with a quality similar to the image displayed on an sRGB monitor.
This feature is particularly useful when displaying photography in a studio, wedding center, art museum, or a gallery. All adjusted values can be saved in Photo Mode.
*Adjustments to color temperature and color level can not be made if the projector is set to DICOM or another image mode.
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.
