Canon REALiS WUX500 Review
July 23, 2015,
Brightness: While the WUX500 is rated at 5,000 lumens, our test unit produced 4,560 lumens in Presentation, its brightest mode. Other preset modes produced the following: Standard - 3,975 lumens, and Photo/sRGB - 3,510 lumens.
Eco lamp mode reduced brightness in all preset modes by about 28%.
Most remarkably, the shift from the maximum wide-angle to maximum telephoto zoom position resulted in a negligible 5% drop in brightness . . . an astonishingly small reduction for a 1.8:1 zoom lens.
Brightness Uniformity: Uniformity was extremely good at approximately 88%. No hot spots were detectable although the left side of the image was slightly brighter than the right side.
Image Size and Offset: With the center of its projected image on the centerline of the lens, the WUX500 is well designed for ceiling or shelf mounting. The zoom lens allows for a 200" image to be projected from as close as 19'8" or as far as 35'5" from the screen. With vertical lens shift of +60% and horizontal lens shift of ±10%, the WUX500's image can be adjusted to fit a variety of room and screen requirements.
Fan Noise and Heat: Fan noise and exhaust heat are a bit on the high side due to the small form factor. However, if installed above and behind the audience, neither presents any serious distraction.
