CCD Sensor Type

Alternative 7.2x digital zoom digital cameras currently available that you might also want to consider include because of it's better review score, the FinePix JZ200, or the T400 both from Fujifilm.

If this digital camera digital zoom is too small for you then you might want to consider the DSC-W530L (8x), or the DSC-W510R (8x) both from Sony or the Lexibook DJ052MH (8x) which also has a higher rating.

10 Reasons Against

Expert Reviews Are Poor

Based on seven expert reviews from sites including What Digital Camera, Ephotozine, Trusted Reviews and Expert Reviews this digital camera has an average expert rating of 59 out of 100. This means that digital camera experts really don't rate this camera very highly.

Does Not Have an Image Stabilizer

Most of the other cameras that are a similar age to the LS465 have an image stabilizer, however the Pentax LS465 does not have an image stabilizer.

We think you might also be interested in alternative digital cameras which also have an image stabilizer including the Fujifilm X10, or the GE C1440W.

Quite Small Display Diagonal

The smallest display diagonal of digital cameras that were launched more than two years ago is 1" and the largest is 4.8". With a display diagonal of only 2.7 inches, the Pentax LS465 has a fairly small display diagonal compared to most of the other similar spec digital cameras that were released more than two years ago.

We compared this camera to all the other 2.7" screen digital cameras and we think because of it's better review score, the Panasonic DMC-FS45, the Canon A2200, and the Fujifilm JZ100 is also worth considering.

Digital cameras with a larger display diagonal that might also be worth considering include the Fujifilm FinePix x100 Classic Kit (2.8"), the Canon PowerShot N2 (£287.92) (2.8"), or the Nikon S6800 (£189.46) (3") which also has a higher rating.

Alternative digital cameras which also support wi-Fi that you might also want to look at include the FinePix Z1000EXR, or the X-Q1 both from Fujifilm or the Samsung Galaxy Camera EK-GC110 which also has a higher rating.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Not 3D

Most comparable spec digital cameras that came out more than two years ago are not 3D. The Pentax LS465 is no exception to this as it too is not 3D.

If you want a camera that is 3D then you might want to look at the Olympus SP-620UZ, the Sony DSC-HX10, or the Leica D-Lux 6 which is also higher rated.

Digital cameras with a better memory card type that might also be worth looking at include the Sony DSC-WX220 (£99.99) (MicroSD (TransFlash and higher rated)|MicroSDHC|MicroSDXC|MS Duo|MS Micro (M2 and higher rated)|MS PRO Duo|MS PRO Duo HS|MS Pro-HG Duo|MS XC-HG Duo|SD|SDHC|SDXC and higher rated).

We compared this digital camera to all the other 16MP digital cameras and we think the A810, and the SX500 IS both from Canon or the Fujifilm T400 which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If you would prefer a higher megapixel then you might want to consider the Samsung SAMSUNG DV300F (16.1MP), or the Panasonic DMC-TZ35 (16.1MP) which is also higher rated.

Average Optical Zoom

At 5 times zoom factor, the Pentax LS465 has a pretty standard optical zoom compared to most of the other digital cameras of a similar age and type to the LS465.

We compared this camera to all the other 5x optical zoom digital cameras and we think because of it's better review score, the Samsung SAMSUNG DV300F, the Canon ELPH 320 HS, and the Nikon S3100 is also worth considering.

If you would prefer a bigger optical zoom then you might want to consider the Coolpix S2750 (6x and higher rated), the Coolpix S5200 (6x and higher rated), or the 3200 (6x and higher rated) all from Nikon.
