Nikon Unveils PROSTAFF 7 Laser Rangefinder


Nikon has announced its newest addition to its optics line, the PROSTAFF 7 Laser Rangefinder.

The PROSTAFF 7 displays ranges in .1-yard increments with a 600-yard ranging capability. Users can choose whether distances are displayed in yards or meters and readings are shown in a view with an LCD display with LED illumination that allows selection of the mode that contrasts  against subject and background. The rangefinder also features a 6×21 magnification and large ocular lens.

Nikon’s ID (Incline/Decline) technology compensates for various incline or decline shooting angles — up to an +/-89 degrees. The PROSTAFF 7 also has Tru-Target Technology, which lets users choose between two  ranging modes. In first target priority mode, users can target an object as small as a fence post and get a precise reading. In distant target priority mode, the rangefinder displays the distance of the farthest target among a group of targets measured.

The PROSTAFF 7 is compact and can be operated with one hand. It features single-button operation and automatically powers down after eight seconds to conserve battery life. The rangefinder is powered by a single CR2 lithium battery and is waterproof and fogproof. The MSRP for the PROSTAFF 7 Laser Rangefinder is $299.95.
