Optical zoom is unlocked while a recording is in progress, however the action has been slowed presumably to cut down on mechanical noise. Though we really can't imagine this tiny lens making any noise to begin with.
Other than recording resolution and zoom, the only user-definable option is autofocus, which may be toggled between continuous or not using a menu option. All other controls are absent.
The TS20 is only equipped with a small mono microphone, and the wind cut option found in the TS4 has been removed. We're not sure why, it seems like this would've been an easy feature to carry over.
