Pentax have announced the launch of the new Pentax Optio VS20 digital compact camera. The latest addition to Pentax’s portfolio of compact cameras incorporates a full array of advanced functions and user-friendly features including 16 megapixel sensor, 20x optical zoom lens and a 3 inch colour LCD display.
A highlight of this neat and compact camera is the extra powerful 20x zoom lens which features broad focal-length coverage from wide angle to super-telephoto and a macro mode. In addition, the camera benefits from an extra shutter-release button and zoom lever to provide a firm, comfortable grip during vertical-position shooting. The camera also comes with a new Handheld Night Snap mode which allows users to capture stunning images with minimal blur and noise even in dim light.
