About the Pentax VS20

The Pentax Optio VS20 Digital Camera is a compact, 16MP point-and-shoot with a number of other pleasing features, including manual focus and a built-in flash. From 20x optical zoom to Shake Reduction image stabilization, the VS20 makes for great image capture without the bulk or learning curve of a DSLR. Additionally, the camera also captures 720p HD video, convenient for home movies and social media posting.

For composing and reviewing shots the VS20 sports a 3.0" LCD, while the 5-100mm Pentax zoom lens gives you the range needed to shoot both close-ups and telephoto images. Features like 3-point autofocus, the option to use a remote control and the digital level function all enhance and simplify your image making. And whether you're recording video or shooting stills, all files can be stored to SD/SDHC/SDXC memory cards.
