Hi,

FWIW most of the 1st AC's I know have all bought such devices but seldom if ever use them.

Save your money!

LEICA have a very good variety of laser measuring pointer.
I used it , but it is very harmful , if it is directed to the eye.

I own an Infiniter 2000; it's certainly a pricey purchase (around $150), but the green laser is much brighter and larger than all the red pointers I've tried, so it's very easy to see even in brightly lit spaces.

I find that I use it all the time - it's great to point out where you want a cut with a flag, where a light needs to be, or to check the frame for equipment and such in small spaces that are dark - it becomes invaluable on night exteriors.

I've had some trouble with mine - seems a bit touchy (not good for a device used for 12 hours on set every day). Look around a bit and I'd suggest avoiding red pointers.
