Hey guys (and gals)! As many of you know I work for an audio/visual rental and show and events company and as such I'm often involved in site surveys at customer sites and venues in my area, and constantly involved in setting up shows involving precise measurements. I recently had to do a site survey at a movie theatre that a client wanted to screen a movie preview at. After ascertaining the booth had an appropriately sized viewport for the projector and space to put it and power to spin it up the question of screen size and throw distance came up. Figuring that there would be somebody at the theatre who would know these things I made no provision for actually measuring these distances. Assuming did it to me again, and of course nobody could give me a straight answer. This is where a laser rangefinder would have been very handy. I made an engineering estimate and promptly ordered a range of lenses from our vendor just in case my depth perception was on holiday. That being said, does anyone have experience with specific makes and models of rangefinders? I work with a production company who owns a Hilti unit that they seem to like, and I've worked with meeting planners and TD's who have units made by Leica. I saw a Craftsman model at Sears for about $70 that only went up to 100' (you get what you pay for). Thoughts? Recommendations? Discuss!
