Wacom Cintiq Pro hits back at Surface Studio with better pens

Wacom Cintiq Pro hits back at Surface Studio with better pens

Microsoft’s unveiling of the Surface Studio undoubtedly made an impression on Wacom, and maybe not in a good way. Microsoft has clearly been aiming at Wacom’s target audience ever since the Surface Pro tablets, but using N-Trig, a rival technology that Microsoft now owns. Still, Wacom has had a long head start in this market and is the household name when it comes to creativity devices. Now it wants to remind everyone about that with its new Cintiq Pro line, bringing pen and display in a somewhat more portable package.

Duet Display Pro turns the iPad Pro into a Wacom Cintiq

Duet Display Pro turns the iPad Pro into a Wacom Cintiq

The iPad Pro and the Apple Pencil shook the tablet world, demonstrating that things that can be created digitally using a rather unassuming accessory. But while the Pencil might be precise and accurate, the iPad Pro itself sometimes becomes the bottleneck, especially for illustrators and artists who need more muscle than the mobile device can provide. Such creators usually go to their Macs or PCs to do “real work”, usually with a Wacom drawing tablet. With Duet’s new Duet Pro subscription, you can have all that without burning a hole through your pocket to buy a Wacom Cintiq.

Wacom MobileStudio Pro Windows 10 tablets have 3D cameras

Wacom MobileStudio Pro Windows 10 tablets have 3D cameras

The launch of the iPad Pro and the Apple Pencil ignited a debate in the graphics community: has Wacom lost its luster? Trying to make up for lost time, fame, and probably customers, Wacom has launched a new series of Windows 10 tablets that put artists and creatives at the very center. Like Wacom’s other Windows tablets, the new MobileStudio Pro line combines display, computing power, and stylus in one large slab. But unlike those older models, some of the newer tablets are not only “3D Ready”, some even have 3D cameras.

Wacom’s Intuos 3D tackles 3D design and printing from all angles

Wacom’s Intuos 3D tackles 3D design and printing from all angles

Joining yesterday's reveal of the Slate and Folio smartpads, Wacom is back at it today, announcing something of a refresh to its Intuos pen-and-tablet line. From a hardware perspective, not much is changing with the launch of the Intuos 3D, as users will still be getting a medium-sized Intuos with a 6-inch by 8-inch active area. The real shake up comes in the form of partnerships that transform the Intuos into a product designed to be an all-in-one solution for those looking to create and eventually publish or print 3D designs.

This desk changed my life

This desk changed my life

The following is an Ergotron WorkFit-D Sit-Stand Desk Review - with a couple of Ergotron add-ons. Earlier this year it was apparent that my working situation was not going to be able to work any longer. I had neck pain as well as upper and lower back pain from the less-than-optimal working conditions I was providing for myself. I decided to seek out the folks at Ergotron to take some of their products out for a spin. I told them my situation and we decided that it'd make sense for me to test out several items: the WorkFit-D Sit-Stand Desk, Neo-Flex Underdesk Keyboard Arm, and the LX Dual Side-by-Side Arm for monitors.

Wacom Cintiq 27 QHD Touch Review

Wacom Cintiq 27 QHD Touch Review

The Wacom Cintiq 27 QHD Touch is what I expected the high end of the digital illustration device world to be. It doesn't feel as "magical" as the iPad Pro, but it's a whole lot more powerful - and professional. It feels like a real professional piece of equipment, something that's been perfected over several iterations - a tool that a top artist would buy again and again. While (as always) there are some changes I might make if I wanted the ideal touch- and pen-friendly display/tablet, at the moment, this is as good as it gets.
