ePHOTOzine
24 August 2012
  • Excerpt: The Pentax Optio LS465 is a tiny digital camera where you can replace the front panel with a different skin. It has a 16 megapixel sensor, 5x optical zoom lens and is available in black, pink and purple for £84.95.

  • Cons: Won't switch on when attached to a tripod / tripod plate, Poor noise performance from ISO 400 upwards, 4:3 pictures look really small on screen
