How Rangefinders Work
Some brands of laser rangefinders work by emitting pulses of eye
safe lasers. When the laser hits an object, it is bounced back and
captured by the receiveing optics. The rangefinder calculates how
long it took for the beam to bounce back from the object to determine
the distance of the object.
Take into consideration that rangefinders will not be able to get
an accurate distance for every object you wish. There are some elements
that may not register a distance for various reasons. The best objects
are large, light-colored, objects that are perpindicular to the
Rangefinders can be used for different reasons:
Different Uses for Rangefinders
Photographers: They can be used by photographers to get
a distance between themselves and the object they wish to photograph.
Hunters: They can be used by hunters to get an exact distance
between themselves and their target. Using rangefiders when you
hunt will help to determine the distance between yourself and your
target allowing you to calculate the distance the bullet will "fall".
Since bullets don't travel in a straight line, but fall over time
due to gravity, rangefinders will allow the hunter to determine
how much of an angle the weapon should be held at to hit the target
in the preferred spot.
Golfers: Trying to determine the distance between you and
the green may be difficult. Using rangefinders to help determine
distances while golfing will allow you to have a better game all
