The Optio LS465
The Optio LS465 is much smaller and lighter than conventional compact cameras without compromising on image quality. The LS465 weights just 104g with dimensions of 10.2 x 4.6 x 1.8cm making its unique compact body the perfect pocket sized camera. It features 16 effective megapixels, a 5X optical zoom lens with a 28mm wide-angle coverage, and HD movie recording.
Ultra-compact, super-lightweight body
Thanks to its newly developed, smaller 5X optical zoom lens unit and ultra-thin 2.7-inch wide-screen LCD monitor, the Optio LS465 is very small. Its horizontally extended, low profile design not only has a more fashionable appearance than conventional models, but it also fits comfortably in a small coat pocket bag, making it the perfect camera for all types of photography from everyday snapshots to holiday photos.
The Optio LS465 delivers sharp, high-quality images, thanks to the combination of exceptional image resolution assured by 16 effective megapixels, a state-of-the-art imaging engine and the high-performance smc PENTAX zoom lens. Even when images are enlarged to poster size, the prints are beautiful and high-resolution with excellent edge-to-edge sharpness.
5X optical zoom lens with 28mm wide-angle coverage
The Optio LS465 features a 5X optical zoom lens covering focal lengths from 5.1mm to 25.5mm (equivalent to a 28mm wide angle to 140mm telephoto in the 35mm format). The Intelligent Zoom function further extends the camera's zoom range to approximately 36 times without compromising image quality.
User-friendly Auto Picture mode
The Optio LS465 features the PENTAX-original Auto Picture mode, which automatically selects the most appropriate shooting mode for a given subject or scene by accurately and instantly assessing various photographic conditions affecting the subject. This user-friendly mode instantly selects one of 14 scene modes, including Portrait, Blue Sky and Sunset, and optimises camera settings such as sensitivity and shutter speed to assure the best result with minimal effort.
Automatic face detection with creative tools
The Optio LS465 features the advanced Face Detection AF&AE function, which instantly and accurately detects human faces within the image field, then optimises focus and exposure settings. It also offers other handy tools designed for the easy capture of beautiful, lively snapshots and portraits, including: the Smile Capture mode, which automatically releases the shutter the moment the camera detects the subject's smile; and the Natural Skin mode, which gives the subject a smooth, healthy skin tone.
High-quality HD-standard movie recording with pushbutton start
The Optio LS465 provides HD movie recording function for the capture of high-quality movie clips (1280 x 720 pixels, 16:9 aspect ratio) at a frame rate of approximately 30 frames per second. With the independent movie recording button on the camera's back panel, the user can switch to the movie recording mode from any shooting mode without delay. It also comes equipped with the sophisticated Movie SR (Shake Reduction) mode, which automatically counters any camera shake during movie shooting..
A variety of imaging processing tools for creative visual expression
The Optio LS465 offers a choice of nine distinctive digital filters, such as Toy Camera (lomo effect) and Retro, for the easy processing of images without the use of a computer. For more creative photographers, users can select the Miniature filter to turn a scene into an image full of miniature models, or the HDR filter to add a painting-like finishing touch.

The first thing you notice is how compact it is. Long and slender,I wear it on a belt pouch and you hardly know it is there.
The auto setting is all you really need. The camera picks up what is the optimum setting and displays it on the screen as as soon as you hold down the pre press photo button.
The Image quality is fantastic. I did a like for like comparison with my own camera Panasonic Lumix DMCTZ5 with a Leica lenz which I have for home use. Taking identical images. The Pentax gave much more vibrant colours and appeared crisper. Granted my Lumix is 10 Mega Pixels and the Pentax is 16 but mega pixels are not the be all and end all, you would have thought the lenz quality alone would have given better images on the Lumix but no.
Battery life is on par with other cameras. I have a spare just in-case.
There is little lag when pressing the shutter button.
The value for money is outstanding.
If you want them there are the usual mind mashing manual settings that most of us never use.
One of the best cameras I have owned to date. This one was for my partner this Christmas so we now will have one each.
Update: After having used the camera for indoor pictures over Christmas in a gloomy room the camera did not perform so well giving grainy images under natural light with the flash not penetrating the gloom more than about 4 meters. This was on the wide screen setting, standard ratio was a lot better though. So I am knocking a star off. But I still think it is outstanding for out-door use.
Only problem I have found is focussing correctly when trying to take close-ups; camera shake becomes magnified and shots then become blurred - but maybe there is a feature I haven't found yet to help with that.
There is a shutter delay that makes it difficult to capture action but this is something that can be got used to.
As a light, easy and reliable way of recording trips etc I would recommend this camera as long as, especially if you are an experienced photographer, you are aware of its limitations.
Pic quality seems pretty good, colours are realistic and transfer speed to my computer was very quick.
