Excerpt: I cannot live without my Wacom, as a lefty photographer doing a lot of retouching it is a must. There is no way any person can retouch with a mouse with the same precission I do with the Wacom. If my account is right I have been using a Wacom for over 20 years.
Pros: Durable, Easily Viewed, Lightweight, Long Lasting
Excerpt: I have been a Wacom Intuos user for over ten years, and when my poor original Wacom tablet finally had to be put to rest, I immediately got another as I have not used a mouse since getting one. I got an Intuos4 which was brand new at the time, and realized that while the tablet is fantastic, this particular pen that came with it did not match the quality the original Wacom series pen had.
Excerpt: Purchased the pen for Corel painter X4. Everything I looked into says it should work. It does not use tilt at all. The wheel only controls the transparacy. The different pressures sensitivity did not work with it also. I know it works in other programs I have but not X4. Not happy about that.
Excerpt: The pen is exactly what Wacom says it is! I can't say the same for the company. After a unbelievable search and several attempts to purchase a replacement for the Intuos4 pen ( even from Wacom ), I found it at B&H. I can't say why I didn't try them first... maybe an alien invasion or something[...
Summary: The cintiq is a cool piece of technology, but it has one very noticeable flaw that I was not able to accept. When I would draw, the lines would all have a wave to them. I'm not talking about the standard digital jitter. I can draw smoothly on my intuos tablet, but the cintiq seems to have some shielding problems that will not allow for smooth drawing.
Summary: I'm sure a lot of digital artists out there wonder if the Cintiq is really worth the cost - it is one expensive piece of kit (especially for us Brits, who seem to pay through the nose for pretty much everything). It is certainly a nice piece of equipment, and having had it now for about a month I enjoy working with it.
Summary: Je suis utilisateur de tablette wacom pour mon travail ( dessinateur de bd ) depuis des années et j'ai voulu passer à cet outil, sur le papier ( si j'ose dire...) plus intuitif. Force est de constater que l'habitude prise avec la tablette "classique" intuos" est tenace. Le touchgrip : bof bof, très saccadé encore. Sous photoshop, le pointeur qui se déplace sous le stylet avec ce petit décalage dû à l'épaisseur de la dalle, est pour moi rédibitoire...
