Point and Shoot. Sized to fit in a shirt pocket, the Leica Disto D2 is the smallest distance meter available and the simplest to use, says the manufacturer. Accurate to 1/16 inch and with a maximum range of 197 feet, it has a fold-out probe for measuring from corners and shortcut keys for addition, subtraction, area, and volume. It costs about $230.
