Canon REALiS SX80 Mark II


The Canon REALiS SX80 Mark II business projector delivers bright, high resolution images with the ability to fine tune the color.

Fine control over color. LCOS technology. Can show images from PictBridge cameras and USB memory keys.

Relatively big and heavy. Volume is too low to be usable.
