I was with the company when Leica Geosystems introduced the first LDM at the Batimat show in Paris in 1993. Like a 1993 cell phone, the first Leica DISTO was the size of a brick and weighed about the same..
“It takes no time to make measurement, and it is so precise that I have much less material waste” says carpenter Jacob Laursen, who during spring, replaced his old folding rule with a laser distancemeter by Leica Geosystems.
Effortless as-build and highly precise measurements achieved with the P2P and smart area functionality of the Leica DISTO™ S910 in combination with the Leica FTA-360-S adapter and TRI 70 tripod.
The Leica DISTO S910 is designed around "smart" functions that combine the output from several sensors to produce a result that would otherwise be difficult to get. Much of that technology comes from the surveying equipment that Leica Geosystems is famous for (among surveyors, anyway), but in the DISTO it is used to help people who aren't surveyors achieve survey-level accuracy.

As I’m sure any lefty knows, there are some really frustrating things about living in a righty world. (Full disclosure - I’m right handed)

How accurate is the tilt sensor in the Leica DISTO™ D3?
The accuracy of the tilt sensor is +/- 0.3° to the laser beam and +/-0.3° to the housing. The accuracy varies according to the measured angle and distance.
What units of tilt are integrated into the Leica DISTO™ D3?
You can set the Leica DISTO™ D3 to use different units of tilt. The user can select between ° and %. The units can be changed in menu item 2

How do I change batteries of DISTO™ DXT?
Fold out the end-piece and open the locking mechanism with a coin or a screwdriver and lift the battery compartment cover. Insert batteries, observing the correct polarity. Close the battery compartment carefully. To ensure the instrument remains watertight, any dirt on the battery compartment seals should be avoided.

How many zoom levels does the Leica DISTO™ D8 have?
The integrated digital Pointfinder in the device has 1x, 2x and 4x zoom. You can see on the left up corner which zoom level you have selected. To change from one zoom level to the next one you have to press the “Digital Pointfinder” key.
