VR (Vibration Reduction) TECHNOLOGY

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).

LOCKED ON TECHNOLOGY

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.

  • *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.

Descriptions

  • Measurement range: 7.5-915m/8-1,000 yd.
  • VR (Vibration Reduction) function is employed for reducing the vibration caused by hand movement.
    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.*1
    • *1Based on Nikon's measurement standards.
  • Easy operation as the VR (Vibration Reduction) function is always activated when the Laser Rangefinder is ON
  • LOCKED ON Technology*2: 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.
    • *2Single 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.
  • First Target Priority mode is employed.
    When measuring overlapping subjects, the distance of the closest subject is displayed — useful when golfing for measuring the distance to a flagstick on a green with woods in the background.
  • Quick and stable measurement response regardless of distance — HYPER READ
  • Displays the measurement result in approx. 0.5 second
  • Distance measurement display step: 0.5m/yd.
  • Single or continuous measurement (up to 8 seconds)
  • High-quality 6x monocular with multilayer coating for bright, clear images
  • Large ocular for easy viewing (18mm)
  • Wide field of view (7.5 degrees)
  • Long eye relief design affords eyeglass wearers easy viewing
  • Dioptre adjustment function
  • Compact body design for comfortable holding
  • Waterproof (up to 1m/3.3 ft for 10 minutes) and fogproof, but not designed for underwater usage; the battery chamber is rainproof
  • Wide temperature tolerance: -10°C to +50°C/14°F to 122°F
