Leica Geovid "2019 Edition"
Olive-green armoring for Geovid 42 HD-B 3000
Leica Geovid binoculars, the benchmark in laser rangefinding, are reliable, indispensable companions for many hunters. Beginning in August, Leica offers the Geovid 8x42 HD-B 3000 and the Geovid 10x42 HD-B 3000 in a special “2019 Edition” – with new, olive-green armoring. Both models will be available in limited quantities only until March 2020.
The Leica Geovid HD-B 3000 models enable linear distance measurement up to 3,000 yards (2,750 meters). Their combination of ABC® ballistics, optical quality and ergonomic design is unique worldwide. The ballistic measurement values can be output in three formats: holdover, number of clicks, and equivalent horizontal range. Air pressure, temperature and angle are included in the measurements, calculating the correct point of impact with highest precision. With a microSD card and the Leica Ballistics Calculator, custom ballistics data can be downloaded to the Leica Geovid HD-B 3000 – providing measurement data that is perfectly matched to the calibration and caliber.
In addition to extended distance measurement, both models offer the newly designed LED display of the Geovid HD-B 3000, which depicts the measured data perfectly and legibly under all light and weather conditions. This guarantees even faster readability. Also of note: The extremely fast scan mode, which records the surroundings and targets every 0.5 seconds and displays the desired measurement results precisely. Up to a measuring distance of 200 yards (182 meters), the Leica Geovid HD-B 3000 displays the measured values in decimal steps, which provides much more precise information, especially for bow hunters. The equivalent horizontal range (EHR) is calculated up to a distance of 1,200 yards (1,100 meters).
The Leica Geovid top models offer exceptional brightness and superior transmission of approximately 90 percent. The patented Perger-Porro prisms in combination with the HD optics design and optimized Leica aperture system guarantee excellent stray light suppression and maximum contrast in all hunting situations.
And the Geovid models remain compact – they are hardly larger than comparable binoculars without laser distance measurement. The magnesium die-cast housing is extremely lightweight and equipped with shock-absorbing olive-green rubber armoring (“2019 Edition” models), which protects the binoculars from damage.
The non-slip armoring, balanced weight and ergonomic shape ensure a secure grip and fatigue-free viewing, even over longer periods. The Leica AquaDura® coating on the outer glass surfaces allows dirt or liquid to simply roll off, thus supporting better visibility, especially in rain. So the binoculars can be used optimally at all times, even in unfavorable weather conditions and high humidity. In addition, the lenses can be cleaned even more easily and quickly thanks to the special coating.
The “2019 Edition” models Leica Geovid 8x42 HD-B 3000 and Geovid 10x42 HD-B 3000 will be available from August 2019.
