PENTAX RICOH Imaging unveiled the new Pentax Optio VS20 a new compact digital camera to the popular Optio collection. The new Pentax Optio VS20 comes with a very interesting feature, its possibly the first compact camera with a second shutter button and zoom lever for portrait-orientation shooting. The VS20 features a 16-megapixel CCD image sensor, a 20x compact superzoom lens, an anti-glare-coated 460k dot 3-inch LCD display, and a 28-560mm equivalent zoom lens with sensor-shift image stabilization. However, what sets the Optio VS20 apart from the rest is its second vertical shutter-release button - a feature usually found on DSLR cameras. The Pentax Optio VS20 is available in black or white, and is set for a February 2012 release date.
