Graphic tablet

Discussion in 'Photoshop' started by Mirco Bottèr, Feb 10, 2010.

  1. Hi
    I've been working with Photoshop for several years now, using a normal
    mouse. I know that many of you work with graphic tablets. I'd like to try
    one. Are there big differences between them and what can you suggest?

    Thanx Mirco

    You sound like one of those guys that owns a Mazda Sedan.
    And, without ever trying out any other vehicle, advertize
    the Mazda as the best vehicle in the world.
    Maybe I am unfair because you did not really say that wacom
    is the best.
    (remember what men did? After visiting only the (earth's) moon,
    it was said there are no life elsewhere in the cosmos!)

    'kay David, I know I am exaggerating...! You only said it's good.
    And certainly, wacom is a good graphic pen; only, *not the only good
    one:)

    Surprise to you; I realize this was pointless.
    I completed at that stage a relative big job, was busy switching off
    before a late dinner, and browsed a bit and felt like saying it.
    Truth is, it was said very light heartedly, with a smile on my face
    and a smile in my heart. And I am still smiling..

    There shouldn't be much difference besides newer driver and better
    supporting.

    I don't deal with the PRESSURE to know the difference between 5xx vs 1xxx.

    Well I have recently bought a wacom pen and touch.

    I use it for photoshop and premiere (elements. I have never owned any
    other tablet but I worked with a trust tablet which was really crap.

    I am using this for a month or 2 now and for the relative low price
    compared to flagship tablets this is ok for me. It did take me 2 weeks
    to get used to the tablet.

    I bought the pen and touch so I thought I could remove my mouse. That is
    to much to fast I still use my mouse and occasionally I use the touch
    feature. But to say I use the touch a lot...no not at all so if i had
    bought the pen only version i think I would be happy to.

    hope this is a bit of a help.

    cheers,
    john

    I have been using Tablet for over 2 decades, and I have been using Wacom
    for around 5-6 years (I have 3 wacom tablets). I too can't tell the
    difference besides.

    - Driver was very hard to find, and I often use the simulating (I forget
    what it's called) to have the tablet worked with all Windows apps. Else, it
    usually require specific driver for specific aps.

    - Quality was much better than current (Wacom made by real cheap material)

    - At home I was using 12x12" tablet, and much happier with the smaller size
    4x5"

    I've an antique Wacom that I'm happy with. I particularly
    liked that it was a really ancient model that I bought used
    (for cheapness, not knowing if I'd really like a tablet)
    and found that Wacom still provided updated drivers for new
    OS's -- despite being REALLY old (remember RS-232 links?).

    Updating newer driver for newer OS is what I like about Wacom, else I
    don't see much difference between campanies (I have used about 4 different
    companies and my first 2 or so before Wacom was born, or I never heard avout
    Wacom then).

    And the only difference I can see is the marterial quality and the feel.
    The writing PLASTIC of other tablets I had were much better.

    1. You can write for years without scratching the surface like Wacom does (I
    have to cover my wacoms with a piece of laminate plastic to protect the
    surface.

    2. Other tablets, you feel like writing on regular paper instead of plastic
    like Wacom does.

    The first couple tablets I had were using PUCK (wired), then wireless pen
    with (1) AAA and then later (2) small batteries (similar to hearing aid
    battery). And Wacom is the first wireless pen without battery.
