Canon LV-X5


This XGA projector provides basic features but costs more than some brighter models that provide better image quality.

Low price

Mediocre remote control, Image quality underwhelmed

The Canon LV-X5's average performance and features don't stack up well against lower-priced competitors that provide better image quality.

Product Specifications

Canon LV-5210 compact, portable and versatile projector offers powerful features at an affordable price. Benefit from advanced image controls and connectivity, with a wide zoom lens for close-up viewing. A high 2,000 ANSI lumens and true SVGA resolution gives superior viewing in all light conditions. Six image settings provide perfect picture adjustment for data and video projection. Switch to hi-contrast mode to make graphs and photographs look sharper. Cinema mode is ideal for watching films in a darkened room. While custom mode lets you fine-tune several factors, including adjusting images that are too light or too dark. Canon's Auto Image mode is especially useful for video and DVD projection in darkened rooms. When black areas on a screen are a shade too light, the projector automatically adjusts lamp brightness to bring out a pure black effect. When a projector is placed at an angle to the screen it can cause image distortion. The LV-5210 features both horizontal and vertical Keystone Correction to overcome this problem, providing distortion-free images. Conventional projectors use interlaced scanning to produce a single frame, often resulting in wavy lines on the screen. Canon's new Progressive Scanning reduces flickering when connected to an interlaced signal. This results in smoother movement, clear diagonal lines and super-sharp titles. You can easily connect the projector to virtually any multimedia equipment. A DVI-D interface gives a direct digital connection to compatible PCs and DVD players, for a clearer picture. A high quality component video connection supports VCR, DVD and High Definition TV projection. An optional SCART connector accepts a wide range of devices, including digital camcorders and game consoles. When projecting in small rooms, the LV-5210 can be set up very close to the screen - and still produce a large, clear image. The new projection lens also offers a 1.6x manual zoom, by far the largest in its class. This ensures easy placement as you can obtain the ideal image size from a remarkably wide range of distances. Giving large 100-inch screen projection from anywhere between 2.5 to 4 meters. Silent mode (only 35dB) keeps operating noise down to a strict minimum. Other advantages include customized logo placement at the start of each session and an optional Multi-Card Imager for network connectivity.
