Intuos5 Touch Pen Tablet

Most people, once they get their hands on a graphics tablet, wonder how they ever did without! A graphics tablet is not just for sketching with a pen, it is actually the extension of your hand and imagination that allows you to work very detailed with speed, accuracy and flexibility.

For creative professionals such as Photographers, Designers and Illustrators or anyone who desires professional results, the Intuos5 Touch Pen Tablet ($319.99) combines Wacom’s most advanced pen technology with multi-touch functionality.

The manufacturer writes: “Natural and intuitive to use, the tablet lets you alternate between using multi-touch gestures to position and navigate your artwork and the pressure-sensitive pen to sketch, paint, retouch, and edit. With 48.4 square inches of working area, the medium size of the three Intuos5 touch models provides ample workspace for the way that most tablet users like to work and can still fit into most laptop computer bags. To simulate traditional pens, markers, and brushes, the Intuos5 Touch Medium Pen Tablet features 2048 levels of pen pressure sensitivity as well as pen tilt recognition. Varying the pressure of the pen against the tablet can create variations in line width and opacity or unique brush effects. The Grip Pen comes with a pen stand that contains ten replacement pen nibs, including five standard nibs, one flex nib, one stroke nib, and three hard felt nibs.”

The Intuos5 Touch Medium Pen Tablet easily connects to your PC or Mac via USB. You can even enable a wireless connection by purchasing and installing Wacom’s optional wireless accessory kit.

Generally the smallest model of any tablet is less useful. Best all-round handleability and performance is the 5.5 by 8.8 inches. It’s worth all that and more. ❚ Flattr this
