The standout feature on the VS20 is the second shutter button, zoom toggle, and tripod mount on the side of the camera. Designed for taking pictures while in portrait orientation, we have to wonder if this was really a problem that needed solving. While the camera sports a 20x zoom, it's larger than we would like and doesn't have any other standout features. Unless your wrist hurts from all those portrait-orientation snapshots, or you absolutely crave a zoom that long, you should look somewhere else.
