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.

Then, its use was limited to a few professionals and amateurs with money to spare. But as with all things in golf and in life, rangefinders eventually became an essential part of a golfer’s arsenal to shoot the ball into the hole.

Some brands may indeed be better than other however the technology is almost always the same. That said, some brands, even though they are using the same technology may have better control over manufacturing or may be using higher quality components. So you will need to do some research to find out which brands you feel comfortable with. But do not get yourself tied up with having to have a certain brand, you may save money or even get a better rangefinder with a brand you never heard of, remember even the big boys had to start somewhere.

You should have a steady hand as the laser should be accurately aimed at the target although it cane easily be overcome with practice. Also, what you cannot see, you cannot measure so much so that hills are the Achilles’ heel of the laser rangefinder. Plus, you have to deal with limited features that are standard on the GPS models.

Whether you’re a professional outdoorsmen, professional organization or enthusiastic hobbyist, there are many reasons why you might want to invest in a quality electronic rangefinder. In short, laser rangefinders automatically calculate the distance between you and an object that you specify. While it may be fun for enthusiasts to guess how far they are from their destination or a certain point, a rangefinder takes the guesswork out of the equation and gives you assurance on the issue.

Last, it should be noted that all laser rangefinders feature a reticle (the crosshair or other type of aiming point you see when looking through your rangefinder). However, many rangefinders use LCD readouts with reticles that appear as black lines that you superimpose over the target you want to range but, this type of reticle if often difficult to distinguish against a dark background or in low light conditions. Therefore, other rangefinders have illuminated, LED, reticles as well. However, even though the brightness of the LEDs is adjustable (sometimes automatically), in bright conditions, it can be overwhelmed by the ambient light and thus it cannot be seen even at the highest settings and yet, in the evening when your eyes are accustomed to the lower light levels, the reticle is often so bright that it impairt your night vision even when set to the lowest settings. Also, this same issue pertains to the other information displayed on your screen such as yardage numbers and modes. Therefore, the best option is to choose a rangefinder with a backlight screen which gives you the capability to view your information in all light conditions.

Laser Rangefinders have many different uses and applications and have become necessary equipment for different types of people specializing in different activities. Fact is that everybody that uses a rangefinder knows how easy they are to use and how beneficial they can be, although the actual dynamics of laser rangefinders and how rangefinders work is understood very little by those who actually use them. Rangefinders seem like quite confusing contraptions at first, but once you have an understanding about how rangefinders work, you will find they are quite simple.

The distance to an objective is calculated by a rangefinder by the rebounding of a laser light beam off the object to be ranged. The time it takes for the laser light beam to reach the target and return is measured by a high speed digital clock. This time that commonly takes less than one second, is then computed by the rangefinder and displayed as a distance on the rangefinders build in screen.

That is more than close enough for the average person and their needs, but this may not be good enough for commercial engineering or military use. For this, it is better to use GPS range finding techniques and triangulation equations.
