This is a good choice for the dad who shoots both video and stills. It can be small enough to slip in to a jacket pocket but flexible enough to equip with a big lens when he's got to shoot from the nosebleed seats.
If you've know a dad who not only religiously records all the winning goals, saxophone solos or chess triumphs, but loves photography, this camera is up to the challenge of capturing anything the kids come up with next, no matter how fast or slowly it moves. And he'll enjoy shooting all the more.
The WX9 offers fast shooting performance and good low-light photo quality for dads looking to catch good indoor shots. Plenty of gadgety shooting options to play with, too, -- all at a budget-friendly price.
