Worst ever

  • Summary: I absolutely hate this camera. I never know when it is going to decide to take a good picture and you have almost no control of anything. On the plus side, at least I am learning lots about photography trying to figure out why my shots don't work. A few more bucks and I coulda had a Canon.

Not what I thought it would be

  • Summary: It is too technical for me I guess. I tried several times to take photos & very few of them came out like I wanted. There may be a way to adjust it but I can't figure it out. The battery seems to go down really quick.

Just don't bother

  • Summary: I have been using Pentax cameras for years and have always been happy with the performance - until I bought the Optio VS20. Initially I was attracted by the high MP and zoom, as well as by the second shutter release and electronic spirit level (I am disabled so don't stand straight and end up with sloping horizons in photographs).

  • Excerpt: Meine billige Digitalkamera mit weniger Pixel und weniger Zoom, macht bessere Bilder in der Nähe und auch in der Ferne, als die Pentax Optio VS20. Sogar meine alte Digitalkamera Lumix mit nur 10- fachen Zoom holt die Berge näher ran und macht dazu noch tolle Bilder. Der 20-fache optische Zoom ließ zu wünschen übrig. Auch die Zuschaltung des digitalen Zoom brachte nicht viel. Sogar im Automodus musste man ziemlich lange mit dem Zoom arbeiten um gute Bilder zubekommen.
