Nikon Forestry 550 Laser Rangefinder has a high-eyepoint design that allows easy viewing even with eyeglasses. In addition to actual distance measurement, height, vertical separation (difference in height between two targets), horizontal distance and angle can be easily measured with this Nikon Range Finder.
The results are displayed on both the internal and external LCD panels of the rangefinder. The external LCD panel displays all results simultaneously. Rangefinders in the Forestry 550 Series from Nikon feature two measurement modes (Target Priority Switch System):
- First Target Priority Mode displays the range to the nearest target taken from multiple results obtained with a single measurement.
- Distant Target Priority Mode displays the range to the farthest target taken from multiple results obtained with a single measurement - especially useful for forestry and hunting.
High quality 6x monocular with multilayer coating produces bright images.
This Nikon Rangefinder is waterproof (up to 1 meter for 10 minutes) but not for underwater usage. The battery chamber is water resistant.
The ranger is capable of measuring different distances in succession, for up to 20 seconds, when the button is held down.
Measurement range: 10-500 m/11-550 yd.
