The Leica DISTO™ D2 is a 7 measurement mode LDM accurate to 3/32 of an inch. It features an intuitive back-lit LCD display in a 4oz package that is smaller than a deck of cards.
The D2 measures from its base by default and can be configured to measure from the front or from the end of its flip-out end piece. Combined with the Min/Max function, extending the end piece and setting the D2 to measure from it allows you to get the tool all the way into corners for very accurate diagonal measurements.
The D2 calculates area and volume, and remembers the last 10 measurements taken. Use the Add/Subtract capability to combine measurements to get a precise reading of the total wall area of a room (aka "the painter function").
The D2 includes a Pythagoras function for indirect height or width measurements. However, in a tool this size that cannot be mounted to a tripod we recommend using the Pythagoras for estimates or rough measurements. If you need precise indirect measurements, an LDM with a tilt sensor is your best bet.
