I bought my Wacom Intuos tablet several years ago and even though it’s one of the dustiest things on my desk, it’s garnered a place in my heart. For editing photos it’s my tool of choice and I really couldn’t do the photo production work I do without it. Wacom has released a new version of the Intuos5 tablet that is light years ahead of my old tablet, the Wacom Intuos5 Touch
The new Wacom Intuos5 Touch comes with:
2048 levels of pen pressure sensitivity help you create artistic details
Multi-touch functionality lets you pan, rotate, and navigate your artwork
Eight ExpressKeys offer personalized, time-saving shortcuts
ExpressView display provides an on-screen view of ExpressKey settings
Reversible ergonomic design for left- or right-handed use
For creative professionals such as Photographers, Designers and Illustrators or anyone who desires professional results, the Intuos5 combines Wacom’s most advanced pen technology with multi-touch functionality. 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 is the one I like the best with ample workspace for the way I work and I can still fit it into most Timbuk2 bag.
