Nikon introduces the LASER 50 and LASER 30 Laser Rangefinders

November 10, 2020

TOKYO - Nikon Vision Co., Ltd., (Nikon Vision), a subsidiary of Nikon Corporation (Nikon), is pleased to announce the release of two new portable Laser Rangefinders, the LASER 50 and LASER 30 which can be used for a wide range of simple measurement purposes. For example, personal outdoor activities, forestry surveys, construction surveys, cable inspections for power companies, etc.

The LASER 50 has a solid design and features a high-durability and magnesium-alloy die-cast body, providing measurement capability up to a maximum distance of 1,820m/2,000 yd.
The LASER 30 similarly has a solidly designed body, and provides measurement capability up to a maximum distance of 1,460m/1,600 yd.
The most advantageous feature of both models is that there are four selectable measurement display modes. (Horizontal distance and angle mode, Actual distance and angle mode, Horizontal distance and height mode, Actual distance and height mode).

The following functions and features are common to both models:
An easier-to-view red OLED internal display, and an automatic adjustment function that automatically finetunes the display brightness according to the surrounding ambient light level, are incorporated.

Thanks to HYPER READ, the measurement response is stable and speedy regardless of the distance to the target, and measurement results are displayed in approx. 0.3 second.

Both models feature a body with a waterproof and fogproof structure, providing protection from unexpected water splashes, accidental dropping into water, and sudden weather changes.

The LASER 50 and LASER 30 enable stress-free, rapid measurement in diverse situations.
