It’s a simple fact…Leica has one of the best reputations in the industry for continually turning out quality products. If you've done any research into range finding binoculars, theres no doubt you have come across the Geovid. Technological advancements of the Geovid have been evolving for 25 years. The development of this product has neared perfection with their most current models and deserves a serious look for those of you in the market for a range finding binocular.
The patented Perger Porro prism design results in fewer internal reflections than roof prism designs which results in less light degradation in the process. What does this mean to you? A bright, clear field of view! The sharp, high contrast images that result from this system have earned the Geovids elite status within the optics world. By combining the supreme clarity with a high performing laser and multi-function ballistic computing capabilities, the results are nothing short of revolutionary!
The Geovid HD-B provides some of the most complete ballistic functions available on any rangefinder. Most models only allow the user to choose from a few preset curves, but this is not an ideal method for those shooting long-range targets. Geovids come with 12 pre-programmed ballistics charts in which to enter one of three zero ranges to customize the ballistics curve. The Geovid HD-B also features sensors for temperature, atmospheric pressure, and incline that contribute to the ballistics engine. The model can automatically adjust itself in response to atmospheric conditions as well. These factors are often overlooked in many other models, or they have to be manually programmed. This “smart” technology sets this model far and away from the competition!
Custom ballistic capabilities allow the Geovid HD-B to offer more functionality and options than other range finding binoculars. While other rangefinders limit you to a handful of pre-programmed ballistics curves, the Leica Geovid HD-B is almost completely custom and supports G1 BC ballistics coefficients.
Using the Geovid HD-B Ballistics Calculator on the Leica website, you can upload the load specifications for your specific firearm, with finite precision including bullet, grain, weight, and ballistic coefficient. This allows the program to calculate very a precise holdover distance that is required for each specific load. For archers, the Geovid will automatically compute an angle compensated distance when ranging between 10 and 100 yards.
A positive industry reputation is not easy to achieve unless consistent quality is part of the agenda. Thankfully for Leica (and those who own their products) this reputation has allowed the company to revolutionize yet another product offering. The Geovid HD-B 42 is simply innovation at its best that can be directly applied to your future hunting success.
