CCD Sensor Type

This camera has a CCD sensor type, which is typical of many cameras of a comparable age and spec to it. CCD sensors produce high quality, low-noise images but consume a lot more power than CMOS sensors. CCD is the most common image sensor type used in digital cameras.

It may also be worth considering one of the other cameras that have a CCD sensor currently available including because of it's better review score, the Samsung 90[plb_1216_price], the Lexibook DJ028[plb_1876237_price], or the SeaLife DC1400 Pro Video[plb_1829794_price].

SD Compatible Memory Cards

This digital camera supports an SD|SDHC|SDXC compatible memory cards, which is typical of many compact cameras that were launched more than two years ago. SD cards are by far the most common type of memory card. They are compatible with the majority of digital cameras.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative digital cameras that support an SD|SDHC|SDXC memory currently available including because of it's better review score, the Nikon Coolpix L320[plb_1939468_price], the GE G100[plb_1861772_price], or the Fujifilm X10[plb_1150_price].

At 7.2 times zoom factor, the Pentax LS465 has a quite big digital zoom compared to most of the other digital cameras that have been available for around the same time as the LS465.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 7.2x digital zoom digital cameras currently available including because of it's better review score, the FinePix JZ 200[pl_1520169_price], or the T400[pl_1505419_price] both from Fujifilm.
