Canon SX7 Mark II
The REALiS is about as bright and powerful as compact projectors get.
The Canon SX7 has a good number of computer, video, and audio inputs—enough to satisfy most business users and some home theater users. There's no HDMI input, but it's easy enough to buy a $2 HDMI-to-DVI adaptor (which creates absolutely no loss of signal quality). Included on the Canon SX7: 1 DVI, 1 VGA, 1 S-Video, 1 composite AV, and 3 analog audio inputs. There's also an included component video-to-VGA adaptor.
All the ports are listed below, compared with the competition.
The Canon SX7 has a type A USB port and a service port.
All the ports on the Canon SX7 are located on one side, which is mostly convenient. There will be no issues with craning your neck all over the place to figure out where a wire goes. On the downside, it might get a little cluttered if you have everything plugged in at the same time.
Internet & Media Features
The Canon SX7 has no internet or multimedia inputs or features.
Menus & Manual
The Canon SX7 ships with a big, fat instruction manual (though 2/3 of the book is French and Spanish). But that remaining 1/3 covers a lot of information. If you have a question, it's probably answered to your satisfaction somewhere in those pages. Unfortunately, the manual is not available for download from Canon's website, at least at this time.
