Nikon Introduces COOLSHOT 40i/COOLSHOT 40 Laser Rangefinders

January 14, 2015

Nikon Vision Co., Ltd., a subsidiary of Nikon Corporation, is pleased to announce the release of COOLSHOT 40i and COOLSHOT 40 Laser Rangefinders — ideal companions for golfers who are eager to improve their skills.

The COOLSHOT 40 is designed exclusively for measuring actual distance, while the COOLSHOT 40i incorporates ID Technology which displays the slope adjusted distance (Horizontal distance ± height) — ideal for use on golf courses with uphill and downhill slopes.

Both the COOLSHOT 40i and 40 offer a multilayer-coated 6x high-quality finder for bright, clear images. Thanks to Nikon's original data-processing algorithm HYPER READ, the measured distance is displayed with a fast, stable response regardless of how far you are from the target. The measurement result is shown in approx. 0.5 second, enabling you to focus on your game with stress-free measurement. Both models employ the First Target priority mode, which is useful to measure the distance to a flagstick on a green with woods in the background, during approach shots.

For all these features, the Nikon COOLSHOT 40i and 40 are easy to operate, compactly designed to ensure a comfortable grip and portability. Rainproofing is applied to handle sudden showers.
