Leica Disto D5 Leica DISTO Laser Distance Measurer
- Digital Color Point-finder with 4x zoom
- Large color TFT 320 X 240 2.4" display screen
- Inclination measurement (0.0°,0.00%, in/ft)
- Power Range Technology
- Sturdy with IP 54 (dust and splash proof)
The Leica DISTO D5 has the only high resolution 2.4" digital color Point-finder display and a 45° tilt sensor in the industry. These features combined with a host of calculation functions make the Leica DISTO D5 the best hand-held digital laser distance meter ever!
The D5 includes:
- Leica DISTO D5
- Wrist strap
- Battery Pack
The in-built digital color Point-finder with 4x zoom makes aiming at long distances much easier. You can even carry out measurements in bright sunlight.
Using the tilt sensor you can also take indirect measurements. From this the horizontal distance can be derived in spite of obstructions.
The D5 is packed with a variety of different calculation functions including area, volume, trapezoid, area of triangle, Pythagoras, and tilt based calculations The Leica DIST D5 can excel in almost any measurement situation

The Leica DISTO D5 and D8 with its color screen requires greater power than previous models. To make up for this higher quality battery intended for high tech equipment such as digital cameras have been provided with these units. For even longer battery life try using Lithium batteries as these will double the amount of measurements you will get with your DISTO D5 over what you get with the provided batteries.
Inexpensive generic batteries or zinc-carbon batteries should not be used as they can damage this unit. The minimum standard is Alkaline, and even then you will likely want to go with a higher quality battery.
The backlight of the D5 and D8 display can be made brighter in the Menu. The standard setting is 2/6, if you are in a bright environment you can change the setting to 6/6. This does however lead to faster power consumption, so you should not use this as your standard setting.
