Where does Leica's  X4 Disto Excel?

The Leica Disto X4 distance meter is the go to distance meter for outdoor applications. This is due to it's built in camera that allows users to take percise measurments outside in direct sunlight, even when the red beam is not visible. 

What is the difference between the X3 and the X4?

The main difference between the Disto X3 and X4 is that the X4 includes the outdoor camera point finder. Other than that, these two lines are nearly identical in specs. If you do not need to take outdoor mesaurements, the X3 will be an excellent choice.
