hi guys,

i used to use wacom tablet for some hand drawn sketchings.. now I would like to get another one and it seems the wacom tablet had basically replaced wiht many new model..

what is the entry level model? did wacom rename entry level tablet as 'intuos Pen'? i know the zoom version is you can use fingers to zoom in..

but i notice there is also a lot of 'bamboo' stylus... i remember bamboo was the entry level tablet name before? it is very expensive compare to a general stylus for ipad or android tablet.. are they able to do something special like sensing pressure?

have technology changed that no one is using wacom tablet anymore?

I use a Bamboo Capture at work, I think it was around $85. At home I have a small Intuos 5. The Capture does not have pen-tilt functionality but the Intuos 5 does. The Bamboo does an ok job, but the accuracy and performance of the Intuos 5 is far superior. Unfortunately, it is a lot more expensive.

At work I use the tablet when isolating product shots and I find the drawing point "sticky". I don't mean on the tablet itself, I mean as I touch the pen to the tablet, the tool in Photoshop seems to stick to the point for a second, which is enough to be noticeable. It got better with the last update of the driver, but I have never had the issue with Intuos 5.

Hope this helps.

Intuos5 is now Intuos Pro. Bamboo pen tablets are now Intuos.

Looks like they have renamed their products.

Try disabling the press and hold option for right click. Seemed to work for me.

I had been using my Bamboo at home for sketching ideas and random things. But, I started to have some wrist pain being on the computer all day most days. So, I took my Bamboo to work (where I mostly build ads and adjust photos) and picked up the older Intuos 3 new for about 80 bucks. I have to say it's way nicer than the Bamboo. So much more sensitive and I don't have nearly as many jagged lines and things. I'd definitely recommend getting one from the Intuos line, even if that means getting an older one.
