does anyone have experience with one of these systems? it is invisible laser distance meters that you can aim with a telescopic sight. i thought it might be usefull for some upcoming boat to boat stuff. i wonder if it works well or if it is just a big hassle. thanks for your answers,

I have used the cfinder and I like it a lot. It is more similar to a sniper than a light ranger (in size) I find it more precise than my cine tape which measures a plane compared to a point. One drawback is that it is not self sufficient, meaning it is made to be used as an accessory to the cmotion system requiring the cdisplay II. You can talk to Sebastian at Camadeus here in LA if you want to try out the system, tell him Gunnar sent you.

Best,
