I know how a laser rangefinder works, but this new one from Leica makes some pretty extraordinary claims, specifically Leica claims
| In addition to the standard ballistic trajectory, its Leica microcomputer also integrates the angle of elevation/declination, the temperature and the barometric pressure in its calculations. This brings an invaluable benefit for hunters, as it displays the point of aim in less than 0.3 seconds without any need to study ballistic tables and without laborious measuring procedures. Hunters can react rapidly and accurately and get their shots right on target in even the most difficult situations.|
Maybe I'm missing something here, but this is simply a rangefinder, not a rifle scope, I understand that it can calculate ballistic trajectory (I assume you tell it FPS, BC, etc.) and then it can adjust for elevation/declination based on how you are holding it and so forth, but what I don't understand is how can it display the "point of aim"? Does anyone know how it does this or maybe looked through one at the SHOT show or something? I'd be curious to learn more as I am in the market for a good rangefinder, thank you.
