VR TECHNOLOGYTargeting stability.
Easy measurement to the flagstick.

Employing Nikon's VR (Vibration Reduction) system, vibrations of the image in the viewfinder caused by hand movement are reduced*, and the irradiated laser is also aligned at the same time. Because you can direct the laser onto the target faster and more easily, the ease of measurement to a small subject like a flagstick is greatly improved; all achieved by Nikon's original technologies that are a fusion of VR Technology and high-performance measurement function. * The effect of Vibration Reduction: Vibrations of the image in the viewfinder caused by hand movement (sinusoidal waves) are reduced to approx. 1/5 or less (Based on Nikon’s measurement standards).

With VR (Vibration Reduction) systemReducing image vibration in the viewfinder enables you to hit the flagstick easily.
Without VR (Vibration Reduction) systemThe image vibrates, unintentionally measuring the distance to the woods in the background.

The VR (Vibration Reduction) system ensures vibrations are reduced while the irradiated laser is aligned at the same time, so you can easily capture the intended target.

When the VR (Vibration Reduction) system is not employed, the irradiated laser light path may be misaligned by hand movement.

LOCKED ON TECHNOLOGYA new, easy way to indicate that the distance to the flagstick has been measured.

LOCKED ON sign

Picture the scene of an approach shot to a green with woods in the background, where you are not sure whether the measured distance is to the flagstick or to the trees behind it. LOCKED ON Technology displays the distance to the closest subject, the flagstick, and the LOCKED ON sign () in the viewfinder appears to inform you at the same time. It is clearly visible that the distance to the flagstick has been measured even with trees in the background.

When measuring woods in the background, the LOCKED ON sign () does not light up.

Measuring the flagstickWhen the distance to the closest subject, the flagstick, is displayed, the LOCKED ON sign () lights up.

* Single measurement: When measuring overlapping subjects and the distance to the closest subject is displayed, the LOCKED ON sign () appears. Continuous measurement: When displayed figures shift to a closer subject, the LOCKED ON sign () appears.

ID TECHNOLOGYDisplays a guide distance to how far you should hit the ball, reading the uphill and downhill slopes of a course.

Employing ID Technology that reads the uphill and downhill slopes of a course, Golf mode displays the slope adjusted distance (Horizontal distance ± Height) which is a guide distance to how far you should hit the ball. This helps you to choose the right club on an uphill/downhill course where it is often difficult to accurately judge distance.

COOLSHOT 80i VR viewfinder display example (for uphill):
The upper figure shows the "actual distance" while the one below indicates the "slope adjusted distance".
Slope adjusted distance (Horizontal distance ± Height)* Upward incline
For an uphill shot with an actual distance of 150 yards, the Golf mode displays the slope adjusted distance (179.8 yd.), which is the sum of the horizontal distance (146.4 yd.) and the height (33.4 yd.). You can thus select the right club for even both up and down hill shots.

KEY FEATURES
  • VR (Vibration Reduction) function employed
  • LOCKED ON TECHNOLOGY*: LOCKED ON sign () informs you of the distance to the closest subject. When measuring overlapping subjects, the distance to the closest subject is displayed with a LOCKED ON sign () in the viewfinder. For example, on a golf course, it is clearly visible that the distance to the flagstick has been measured even with trees in the background.
  • Measurement range: 7.5-915 m / 8-1,000 yd.
  • ID TECHNOLOGY displays the slope adjusted distance (Horizontal distance ±Height) which is a guide to how far you should hit the ball and useful when golfing on an uphill/downhill course.
  • First Target Priority algorithm is employed. When measuring overlapping subjects, the distance of the closest subject is displayed — useful for measuring the distance to a flagstick on a green with woods in the background.
  • Single or continuous measurement (up to 8 seconds)
  • HYPER READ enables quick and stable measurement response regardless of distance
  • Measurement result is displayed in approx. 0.5 seconds
  • High-quality 6x monocular with multilayer coating for bright, clear images
  • Large ocular for easy viewing (18mm)
  • Long eye relief design affords eyeglass wearers easy viewing
  • Waterproof (up to 1m/3.3ft. for 10 minutes) and fogproof ; battery chamber is rainproof
  • Ergonomic design for comfortable holding* Single measurement: When measuring overlapping subjects and the distance to the closest subject is displayed, the LOCKED ON sign () appears. Continuous measurement: When displayed figures shift to a closer subject, the LOCKED ON sign () appears.

*Note: The technology behind the Laser Rangefinder with inclinometer originated from technology incorporated in Nikon’s Total Station DTM-1 surveying instrument. The Total Station DTM-1, first sold in 1985, was the first highly advanced electronic model of those surveying instruments that incorporated a distance and angle measuring capability developed by Nikon Corporation.
