Pentax Optio VS20 Reviews

Pocket-lint reviews the Pentax Optio VS20 and writes;
“For £199 in return for a 20x zoom and chassis that, while slightly chunky, will still fit in your pocket, you might feel able to put up with a bit of inconsistency and white balance wandering between successive frames if the camera is left to its default “auto everything” devises.”
