This edition of the Leica 10x42 Geovid HD-B Rangefinder Binocular upgrades the ranging capabilities from earlier iterations, allowing it to measure out to a maximum of 2200 yards. It fuses the image quality of a fully multi-coated optical path with the functionality of a powerful rangefinder and an integrated ballistics computer.
Leica's Advanced Ballistic Compensation (ABC) technology combines temperature and air pressure readings with rangefinder data, zeroed distance, and a user-defined ballistics curve to calculate ballistic compensation values. To maximize the accuracy of compensation values, the Geovid allows the shooter to input their rifle's zero distance and select a ballistics curve corresponding to the chambered round. The HD-B is pre-loaded with 12 ABC ballistics curves for common calibers and loads, and alternative ballistics curves can be calculated on the Leica website, stored to - and uploaded from - a microSD card. An in-view LED display allows the observer to view the calculated ABC values without taking their eyes off the visual scene.
This Geovid binocular has a nitrogen-filled fogproof housing as well as fully multi-coated lenses that transmit bright and color faithful images. Leica's Perger-Porro prism design merges the benefits of roof and Porro designs, delivering a streamlined form factor without sacrificing depth of field or color fidelity. Exposed lens surfaces are finished with Leica's proprietary High Durable (HDC) and AquaDura lens coatings, which repel moisture and prevent dirt from adhering to the glass while offering abrasion-resistance.
