Wacom's Intuos5 touch interface gives this graphics tablet a distinctive edge
2 July 2012
Excerpt: (1 items) When I started dabbling with digital cartooning in high school, the very first big purchase I made was an Intuos2 6x8 . In the 12 years since I purchased it, that tablet has been a valuable part of my digital arsenal; it still has a vaunted place of honor in my first desk drawer. I’ve never been tempted to upgrade in those intervening years, not even by out-of-my-price-range Cintiqs ( ) or higher levels of pressure sensitivity. Not until now.
Pros: All tablet sizes feature wireless option, New design, ExpressKeys HUD is useful and unintrusive, Touch and pen interface
Cons: Wireless option slightly clunkier than Bluetooth
Summary: The Wacom Intuos 5’s a charming tablet for serious digital artists, with few to no drawbacks. But unless you’re planning on getting into it in a big way, the £270 pricetag is far too steep for the option of sprucing up just the odd image.
Excerpt: I've been a long time user of Wacom graphic tablets as part of my editing workflow. Making selections, painting a mask, and many other operations are not only more intuitive with a pen, but you have much finer control than you do with a mouse or a trackpad. Until now, the Intuos4 Bluetooth tablet has been what I considered to be as close to perfect as you could get.
