As you can guess, the rangefinder’s laser helps pinpoint the distance between you and an object. To delve deeper, laser rangefinders typically use three different lenses: the viewfinder, the main camera lens and the reflector lens. When using the rangefinder, you look through the viewfinder and the main lens is responsible for gathering light to help the device focus. The third lens overlays the target on the viewfinder so you can pinpoint your target. When you press the button on the electronic rangefinder, a laser shoots out from the rangefinder and towards your target. The laser bounces off your target and gets sent back to the rangefinder, which immediately calculates the distance between you and it.
Rangefinder Applications As mentioned, there are many uses for laser rangefinders. Hunters can use electronic rangefinders to calculate shot distance to deer, elk or other game. Golfers use rangefinders to determine the distance to the golf ball, which can help them select a club. Hikers and mountain climbers use laser rangefinders to map the best route.
History Rangefinders have actually been around for quite a while; clear back into the 19th century. Laser rangefinders in particular, being not nearly as old, have only become popular to the average person in the last 20 years or so. They have been used by commercial and military operations for some time now, but these models were typically too big and heavy, and way too much for the average person to use on a day to day basis, not to mention they are much too expensive for the average person to afford.
