Pentax Optio VS20

Pentax has announced a compact super-zoom with a 20X optical zoom lens and unique vertical shooting controls (means the camera has two shutter buttons and two zoom levers to allow you to take portrait and landscape photos easily). Besides that, it seems to have a pretty conventional set of features for a compact camera.

  • Two shutter buttons, two zoom levers and two tripod mounts for vertical and horizontal shooting
  • Auto Picture (Essentially auto mode with auto scene selection) and scene modes; no manual controls
  • 720p Standard HD movie mode with sound
  • Takes SD/SDHC/SDXC memory cards
  • Uses a lithium-ion battery
  • Available in February for $250
