The Pentax Optio LS465 is a fashionable, very compact entry level point and shoot camera. It features a 16 megapixel sensor and HD movie recording with a dedicated recording start/stop button. Movies can only be played back directly to a TV in standard resolution. Playing movies back in HD quality requires a computer.

The camera is available in three colors: Sapphire black, Ruby pink, and Amethyst purple.

The front can be customized with any of 10 included panels, or it can be left as is in brushed aluminum and the battery can conveniently be charged in the camera.

The LS465 is available in the European and Asian markets only.
