A focus-puller is the eyes of the audience. It's like telling a story without any words.

Hi Fabio

I stick with my Hilti PD-E. It turns on in less than a second.

Also has a built in optical viewfinder, what makes it very easy in measuring in bright sunlight.

Hilti provided "life-time" service, whenever your unit brakes down, they will try and repair it and if not possible, give you a brand new one for a small fee!


All the best

I have also been using my Hilti PD-E for 5 years and it’s great! Very fast and accurate as well as alll the functions of the Leica Disto, but instead of the camera it has an optical viewfinder, which works great in the daylight

I have two.

The old Hilti PD40 which I love because works very well in externals shots and it is very fast to power on and to read and I also have the Leica Disto D2 which is amazing because is tinny, fast and the batteries last forever. 

With theese two I did a lot of nice things and It help me a lot.

I have the Leica X4, and I really like that it has a built-in "pointfinder"-camera for situations when you can't see the laser dot because its too bright outside or the distance to the subject is too big. Also, it's water- and dust-resistant (IP65!) and you get all the accuracy and quality you'd expect from Leica.

I also have the Leica D2 for interiors/as a backup, but I rarely use it anymore because I got used to the X4 so much.

Hi everyone.

I have my old Disto D5 and works great, it is true that is slow when is turning on...  But it never really let me down.  For interiors I have, as Fabio mentioned, the little Bosch Zamo. It is fast, accurate and very cheap.

If in the future If I have to get a new one I would probably go for the PD-E but there is a half price option that many people in Spain are happy with: the Bosch GLM 120C.  Check it out!!

Cheers!

Hello,
I have the Hilti PD-E and I think it's a great tool, robust, accurate and it have saved me many many many times before or during a take!
I even used it last week as a laser pointer on a dolly shot ;)
