LASER 50 Laser Rangefinder

Know the distance.

When knowing distance is critical to what you do, whether that’s outdoor adventures, forestry, construction, utility work or surveying, you need a rangefinder that’s fast, accurate, and durable. Meet the LASER 50, a multipurpose rangefinder that quickly measures horizontal distance, actual distance and angle and degrees in 0.1-yard increments up to 2,000 yards* in the toughest conditions. *Under Nikon’s measurement conditions and reference value. 

Horizontal Distance.

Horizontal Distance gives you the distance to your target accounting for angle. Crucial for when your target is higher or lower than you.

Actual Distance.

Find the actual distance between you and your target, taking its elevation into account. Great for forestry, construction and surveying.

Target Angle & Height.

The final piece of many calculations, quickly switch between your target's angle of elevation/depression or its actual height in yards.

What a view.

A rangefinder is only as good as its optics. The LASER 50 uses premium multilayer coated Nikon optics with 6x magnification and a wide field of view, so you can quickly find distant subjects, even in low light.

Dead simple.

The LASER 50 is a breeze to use. Easily switch between measurement modes, change your target from first to distant priority objects or activate continuous scanning for up to 8 seconds—all without taking your eye off your target.

5 Year Warranty.

The LASER 50 is backed by Nikon's Five Year Limited Warranty against defects in material and workmanship for five years from the date of purchase by the original consumer purchaser from a Nikon authorized dealer.
