    This camera replaces the Pentax Optio LS1000 and continues the plain box like design with interchangeable covers. With that in mind it's probably aimed at the younger generation of users.
    What's appealing about this camera?
    It's cheap. I found the LS1500 for £[] delivered.
    (Which means the LS1000 can be found even cheaper end-of-line)
    Well, the LS1000 was very well received and reviewed. It punched above it's price in terms of quality. The LS1500 is no different. In fact, the discernible difference being the way you attach fascia to your camera.
    Pictures look sharp and bright on the LCD screen. So the face detection focus is doing it's job well. I was very impressed with the flash on the camera. It gave a well exposed and evenly lit set of prints from 2ft-6ft beyond this the flash struggles and there is considerable fall-off - to be expected.
    Outdoor / well-lit shots all look good from this camera - its well documented this camera likes to saturate the colours which can add a certain punch to images.
    4x zoom - which is a kind of standard on digital compacts these days.
    Continuing the fun theme are the filter effects. And it seems many a drab picture can spring to life when pushed through filters. There are a multitude of in-camera editting features as well.
    Ultimate build and picture quality will never compete with prosumer or DSLR but this is not the point. What it does - it does well and you can't ask for more for your money.

    but the minute levels drop the noise that appears in images this camera produces is rather shocking. i've had many, many, compacts...none of them have had such bad low light performance as this. iso800? don't go below iso400. don't. not terribly happy with the macro shots it produces either. they lack definition and focusing can be a problem.
    on the plus side i like the styling. i like the fact that it's rather angular. it's very light due to being made entirely of plastic so you don't really notice it in your pocket. smooth zoom. the HD video is of good quality. the menu systems are ok even if the system tweaks don't let you delve beneath the hood very much.
    happy to have it with me as an everyday camera (good for pub escapades and other frivolous activities...use the flash) but if more serious work is to be undertaken i'll take my nikon compact or my sony dslr.

    As a camera for beginners this pentax Optio RS1500 digital camera is really good and easy to use. It comes with a range of accessories including a range of coloured card covers for the camera. There is one down side however, and it is unfortunately a massive fault. The battery has to be taken out of the camera to fully charge it in a mains plug and it has a very short battery life! Not good if you want to take it out for the day and are away from a charger.Pentax Optio RS1500 Digital Still Camera - Silver (14MP, 4 x Wide Angle Optical Zoom) 3 inch LCD

    love this little camera, was recommended by a friend and hasn't disappointed me. It's small can just keep in a pocket or a handbag. I't easy to use just point and press.
