Compact Cameras

Pentax Optio VS20 Digital Camera


Pentax announced the 16-megapixel Optio VS20 compact digital camera with 20x optical zoom lens (28-560mm equivalent) and a second vertical shutter-release button with zoom lever for effortless portrait-oriented shooting. A vertical shutter release and zoom lever give the Optio VS20 a unique feature typically found on DSLR cameras, which lends itself to added stability at long optical zooms, as well as comfortable grip for such images as portraits, high-rise buildings and architecture, monuments, trees, sports action, and panorama frames. The Optio VS20 even includes a vertical tripod socket for outstanding stabilized vertical support. A new Handheld Night Snap mode also is introduced to capture beautiful images with minimal blur and noise even in low light settings.
