Summary: Personal Experience I have had this projector for about 4 months. Image is great. I have gotten very close and can see no screen door effect. Have run all kinds of equipment to it. DVD, HDTV, PC, DVHS using component. All works great. Auto ajust to source. I have just gotten a DVI cable for it. Auto ajusted to my PC with that as well. When I get a DVI switcher box I will use that in place of component. Problems Would be nice to have a sleep timer on it.
Summary: Personal Experience I have this projector for three months already and the image projection is excellent even with the presence of ambient light in my family room. My hp zd7000 17 inch laptop computer (with resolution of 1680 x 1050) projected excellent DVD moving and digital photo images. INHD cable broadcast are tantalizing moving images. Your dermatologist can diagnose your favorite professional player face of their dermatologic existing conditions upon close up. Hey!
Summary: Personal Experience Just got this projector. Picture quality is fantastic. Lack of inputs is not a problem as some people may say as we hooked it up to a Denon Rec. with component switching. Little bit loud even in Econo mode but not noticiable if you have the sound in the theatre up a bit. Quality with a PC is astounding.
Summary: Personal Experience The best data-projector on the market! LCOS brings best picture quality. Also the optic with 1.7 Zoom is very good - you are flexible with the position! I have compared with NEC, Toshiba and ASK.
Summary: Personal Experience This is the best colour reproduction I have seen on a digital projector. The projected image is sharp and close to the quality a projected colour transparency. I am surprised that it has an average contrast ratio of only 1:1000 although it does not seem to affect the gray scale and contrast. The magic of this projector lies in the ability to tweak individual colours on a colour axis. Problems 1.
Summary: Personal Experience First of all, the image quality is simply STUNNING!!! I was amazed by the high resolution and the colors that it's able to produce thanks to the new LCOS-technology (Liquid Crystal On Silicone). This gives you the best of two worlds from LCD and DLP. No screendoor-effect, no rainbow-effects and excellent contrast! The image is crisp but not DLP-sharp which is very nice.
Summary: Personal Experience Anyone interested to acquire an SX50 should first do his/her own diligence review as to why this projector was first released by Canon in October 2004, then immediately withdrawn and re-released something like three months later. It is hard to tell if Canon's aim with this LCOS unit was to go after the PowerPoint traveling crowd or the home theater crowd or some other crowd. My best bet would be the first group.
Summary: Personal Experience Fantastic!!! I have had this projector for two months. If you are looking for a home projector this is hands down the best one to get. First of all is the price. $4000 for a SXGA+ resolution (1400x1050)1,470,000 pixels. It is not LCD or DLP. It is the new LCOS (Liquid Crystal on Silicon), this means ZERO, yes ZERO screen door effect. Zero rainbow effect also. It has a 1.7 zoom lens (100" image at 9.8'). Very bright at 2,500 lumens.
Summary: Personal Experience IMAGES PROJECTED WERE SIMPLY STUNNING, WITH EXCELLENT WHITE, CRISP AND SHARP FONTS, EVEN 5 PTS FONTS WERE VERY CLEAR AND EXCELLENT IN VIDEO PROJECTION. THIS CAN BECOME AN EXCELLENT PRODUCT FOR HOME THEATER, HIGH QUALITY CUSTOMERS. WITH JUST 4 KGS i.e. JUST HALF THE WEIGHT OF THE NEAREST COMPETITION THE PRODUCT IS SIMPLY A POWER OF TECHNOLOGY.
