Standing on the Hoover Dam, you’re trying to encapsulate the majesty of the engineering feat before you. Turning the camera on its side, you try and get a perfect portrait shot, but find the vagaries of evolution mean your fingers won’t stretch to the buttons anymore. If you’ve ever experienced such horrors, Pentax has the solution with its new Optio VS20 digital compact camera. The 16-megapixel camera packs an accelerometer (like Samsung’s QF20) which will flip your image to the correct orientation and a second shutter release and zoom lever on the topmost side of the body for easier snapping. The company also thoughtfully included a second tripod mount, so there’s no futzing with your stand required. Less exceptional features include a 3-inch LCD, automatic picture modes including fish-eye that’ll appeal to the young skaters and hipsters you see littering the streets. It’ll capture 1280 x 720 movies with its independent video button (also recording in fish-eye) and variable aspect ratio. It’s arriving next month for $250, so if you want to become a superstar of the board, you’d better get practicing your Ollies.
