It’s kind of like when the Game Boy went to color. Hand-held laser distance meter connoisseurs Leica makes a splash with the DISTO D5. It is equipped with a digital Point-finder, a high resolution 2.4-inch color display and a tilt sensor. The integrated Power Range Technology allows you to measure long distances very simply. Surveyors and planners can measure up to 300 feet without a target plate, and even up to 600 feet using a target plate, without having to take a single step.
