Canon today in Japan announced two new mobile projectors [JP], the LV7375 and the LV8300 (weight: 3.3kg). Both devices hit Japanese stores today (there is no information yet about a release outside Japan). The projectors feature a completely new design and are equipped with a carrying handle.
The LV7375 (pictured above) produces 3,500 lumens, comes with a 7W mono speaker and a 230W lamp, features 1,024×768 resolution, 500:1 contrast ratio and is equipped with quick start and direct power off buttons. It can produce 60-inch images from a distance of just 1.9m.
The LV8300 produces 3,000 lumens but at 1,280×800, it features better resolution. It just needs a distance of 1.7m to produce 60-inch images. Other than that, the technical specs are identical to the LV7375.
The LV7375 costs a whopping $3,700, while the LV8300 sets Japanese buyers back $3,200.
