Has anyone used a low-end laser distance meter (i.e £50 or less model) to do exterior linear measurements? Are they any good up to say, 30 meters? Do they work well enough in bright light?
I'd like to move on from a surveyors' tape measure but don't want to shell out £300 on an all singing/dancing Leica laser model.
I'm normally surveying residential sites up to 30- 50 linear meters at a time. Any recommendations?
