Slim compact featuring eye-catching design

Pentax has accompanied the announcement of its new DSLR – the K30 – with the launch of the new Optio LS465. The compact features an eye-catching low profile design, along with a host of advanced imaging functionality.

The Optio LS465 features a 16MP sensor, combined with an smc Pentax 5x optical zoom, covering a focal range of 28-140mm in 35mm equivalent terms. As well as featuring Pentax’s Auto Picture shooting mode, users will also have 14 different scene modes from which to choose.

The Optio LS465 boasts advanced Face Detection AF and AE functionality, allowing detection of faces within the image field and adjustment of the camera settings to suit. The camera also features HD movie capture at 720p resolution and in 16:9 aspect ratio.

The Optio LS465 is available in a trio of colours – Sapphire Black, Ruby Pink and Amethyst Purple – and features a characteristic low-profile thin rectangular design, making it eminently pocketable.

The Pentax Optio LS465 will hit shelves towards the middle of June this year, with an RRP of £89.99. For more information, head over to the Pentax website.
