The binoculars are equipped with a built-in rangefinder (17), allowing you to measure distance to objects up to 1000m away.
How the rangefinder works:
- Turn on the device, set up image according to section Powering On and Image Setting.
- Press the UP (2) or LRF (21) button on remote control - rangefinding reticle appears; in the top right corner of the display dashes of distance values with unit of measurement appear, i.e. the rangefinder enters the stand-by mode.
- If PiP mode is activated, the PiP window remains active upon activation of the rangefinder.
- Point the rangefinding reticle at an object and press the UP (2) button.
- In the top right corner of the display you will see distance in meters (or yards - depending on settings).
Note: if the rangefinder is idle longer than for 4 seconds, it turns off automatically.
Operation in SCAN mode:
- To measure distance in scanning mode, hold down the UP (2) or LRF (21) button on remote control for longer then two seconds. Measurement readings will be changing in real time as you point the binoculars at different objects. Message SCAN appears in the top right corner.
- To exit SCAN mode, press UP (2) or LRF (21) button again.
- If measurement fails, dashes will appear on the display.
- In 4 seconds of inactivity (no measurement is taken) the rangefinder turns off, the rangefinding reticle with readings disappears from the display.
- To select a rangefinding reticle, please see the Reticle Type subsection in the Rangefinder section.
- To select a unit of measurement (meters or yards) go to the Units of Measure subsection of the General Settings section.
- Accuracy of measurement and maximum range depend on the reflection ratio of the target surface, the angle at which the emitting beam falls on the target surface and environmental conditions. Reflectivity is also affected by surface texture, color, size and shape of the target. A shiny or brightly colored surface is normally more reflective than a dark surface.
- Measuring range to a small sized target is more difficult than to a large sized target.
- Accuracy of measurement can also be affected by light conditions, fog, haze, rain, snow etc. Ranging performance can degrade in bright conditions or when ranging towards the sun.
