Canon REALiS WUX6000
1920x1200, 6000 Lumens

Allan Abbott, March 10, 2015


Brightness. While the WUX6000 is rated at 6,000 lumens, our test unit produced 5,480 lumens in Dynamic mode, its brightest color mode. Other modes put up the following: Presentation - 5,250 lumens; Standard - 4,805 lumens; Vivid/Photo - 4,690 lumens; Photo/sRGB - 4,935 lumens; Video - 4,350 lumens; and Cinema - 4,510 lumens. Eco lamp mode decreased brightness by about 26% while going from wide angle to full zoom resulted in a 16% reduction in brightness.

Brightness Uniformity. Uniformity was outstanding at 95% with no hot spots.

Image Size and Offset. The WUX6000 is well designed for ceiling or back wall mounting. Depending on the optional zoom lens installed, a 200" image can be projected from as close as 11'4" or as far away as 97'8". The ultra-long focus zoom lens (RS-IL04UL offers the greatest flexibility with a zoom range of nearly 2:1 depending on the zoom setting. The bottom of the image is roughly at the lens centerline, but with vertical lens shift of -15% to +55% the image can be adjusted to fit a variety of situations. In addition, there is horizontal lens shift of ±10% should the image not be quite centered on the screen.

Fan Noise and Heat. Even though fan noise is relatively high, it is typical for projectors of this brightness. Since the projector is likely to be mounted on a wall or from a drop tube, the effect of noise and heat exhaust on the audience is negligible.
