I have a B&S but need to find a way to mount it on a regular camera tripod. How do you have yours mounted?

Re: Rangefinder

Sorry, but hard to think the review you posted was very objective when the author used sentences directly from the Swaro catalog or web page...

"Monocular laser range finder with perfect image quality due to our patented binocular expertise. Unique technology for accurate measurement even in poor weather conditions and over large distances."

Re: Rangefinder

I was a bit disappointed in the review too. I don't feel ranging buildings with reflective glass tells me what I need to know. Unless, there was a huge Elk mounted in one of the offices.
