Nikon announces Coolshot 80i VR and Coolshot 80 VR Laser Rangefinders for Golfing
Nikon today announced the release of innovative Laser Rangefinder models with an optical VR function for golfers- Coolshot 80i VR and Coolshot 80 VR. Both the Coolshot 80i VR and Coolshot 80 VR offer a multilayer-coated 6x high-quality finder for bright, clear images. Thanks to Nikon’s original data-processing algorithm HYPER READ, the measured distance is displayed with a fast, stable response regardless of how far you are from the target. The measurement result is shown in approx. 0.5 second, enabling you to focus on your game with stress-free measurement.
Both models employ the First Target priority mode, which is useful for measuring the distance to a flagstick on a green with woods in the background during approach shots. In addition, a new function, LOCKED ON Technology, is provided with these new models to inform you as the distance to the First Target is displayed. When measuring overlapping subjects, and the distance to the closest subject is displayed by First Target Priority Algorithm, the LOCKED ON sign appears in the viewfinder to inform you. It is clearly visible that the distance to the flagstick has been measured even with trees in the background.
Employing Nikon’s Vibration Reduction system, vibrations of the image in the viewfinder caused by hand movement (sinusoidal waves) are reduced to approx. 1/5 or less, based on Nikon’s measurement standards. The irradiated laser is also aligned at the same time, so the user can hit the target faster and easier. The Coolshot 80 VR is designed exclusively for measuring actual distance while the COOLSHOT 80i VR incorporates ID Technology which displays the slope adjusted distance (Horizontal distance ± height), making it ideal for use on golf courses with uphill and downhill slopes.The Nikon COOLSHOT 80i VR and Coolshot 80 VR with their waterproof and fog proof structure (battery chamber is rainproof) are ready for use in case of sudden rain.
