Pentax Optio RS1500 offers hi-res images for a budget price

The Pentax Optio RS1500 is a new budget compact offering a 14MP sensor and 4x optical zoom for an impressive £89. The Option RS1500’s party trick is based purely around the aesthetic though, with the front panel able to be replaced as well as the lens’ outer ring.

The camera comes with 10 pre-designed skins and five blank versions, making it possible for the more artistically inclined to create their own designs. Each can be added utilizing a clip system rather than screws, so a user could even swap midway through shooting without needing to rustle through a tool shed.

Adding to the feature list is a 720p HD movie mode and 3 inch LCD screen, both of which are impressive additions for the price point. For more information on the Pentax Optio RS1500 head to Pentax’s website.
