A smart laser rangefinder
The Nikon Prostaff 1000i uses a laser to offer precise distance measurements of outdoor targets — a powerful tool for hunting and other outdoor activities. The device can be comfortably hand-held, and it offers 6X magnification with a measurement range of up to 1,000 yards.
Incline/Decline technology displays slope-adjusted distance for a more accurate read when making uphill or downhill measurements, and you can choose to view actual distance or horizontal distance. And Tru Target lets you switch between a single priority target and the most distant of multiple targets.

More details on the Nikon Prostaff 1000i
Overview: The Nikon Prostaff 1000i laser rangefinder helps your golf game by giving you accurate distance measurements up to 1000 yards instantly with the press of a button. With Nikon's ID Technology, you'll get even more accuracy on uphill or downhill shots. The unit is compact and lightweight, with a durable rainproof finish to give it a non-slip grip. The Prostaff 1000i is powered by a 3-volt Lithium battery (included), and comes with a handy storage case that can be worn on the belt or attached to your bag.
Slope-adjusted Distance: The Prostaff 1000i features Nikon's advanced ID (Incline/Decline) Technology, which provides you a slope-adjusted distance for your uphill or downhill shots. The rangefinder automatically detects whether the shot is on an incline or decline and adds or subtracts yardage based on the slope. The slope-adjusted distance is equal to the horizontal distance ± height. This helps you choose the right club and hit the ball at the proper trajectory. It also makes the Prostaff 1000i a valuable tool for rifle or bow hunting. Using the Mode button, Horizontal Distance Mode (with ID Technology enabled) can be turned off, if desired, so you can see the actual distance display, and use the device during tournament play in compliance with USGA Local Rule 14-3.
One Button Operation: The Prostaff 1000i laser rangefinder gives you fast and simple measurements by pressing the top-mounted power button. The unit emits invisible, eye-safe infrared energy pulses (EN/IEC Class 1M Laser) that reflect off of the selected target back to its optical receiver. The distance is instantly calculated and displayed on an internal LCD panel. Pressing the power button once starts a single measurement, while pressing and holding the button starts continuous measurements. If measurement fails, measurement continues for up to approximately 4 seconds (8 seconds for continuous) until results are obtained.
Tru Target: The unit has Tru Target technology, which allows you to switch between First Target and Distant Target modes. When you have overlapping subjects, First Target Priority mode displays the distance of the closest subject, and Distant Target Priority mode displays that of the farthest subject. With Nikon's measurement conditions, maximum distances have been determined for different subjects: deer - 600 yards, tree - 800 yards, reflective subject - 1000 yards.
Nikon Optics: The Prostaff 1000i uses Nikon glass and multicoating technology to give you clear views with high contrast.
Diopter Ring: The viewfinder has a diopter ring for adjusting the rangefinder to your eyesight. A diopter index indicates "+" and "-" positions.
Eye Relief: The Prostaff 1000i's eyepiece provides a long 16.7mm eye relief for easy viewing, even with eyeglasses.
Distance Measurements: Distances from 6 to 1000 yards are measured in 1 yard increments, or 5 to 910 meters in 1 meter increments. You can switch the units of measurement from yards to meters by pressing the top-mounted Mode button.
Weatherproof Design: The Prostaff 1000i has a weatherproof design (IPX4) so you can use it in wet conditions.
Power Requirements: The Prostaff 1000i operates on a single 3-volt CR-2 Lithium battery (included). Battery status is displayed in the viewfinder during normal operations. A new CR-2 battery has enough energy to perform continuous measurements approximately 20,000 times.
