Wacom has just released a 16 inch Cintiq for only $650. Check out my in-depth review of the new Wacom 16 Pen display. I unbox and set it up, show you the additional stand. Find out the specs and see what it’s like in use for both illustration and retouching. I also test the lag, parallax and more.
There is nothing like drawing and painting directly on screen.

Having used Wacom tablets since the Artpad 2, I have become used to the fluid drawing experience that the EMR (Electro Magnetic Resonance) pens provide. The pens don’t have batteries and are well balanced with a comfortable feel and never need to be charged. The 8192 levels of pressure sensitivity and textured surface of the tablet, resembles drawing with a pencil or pen on paper. When in Photoshop, there are so many tools that take advantage of pressure sensitivity, that I can’t image drawing or retouching without one. I always travel with a Wacom Intuos tablet in my bag.
The Cintiq line, cranks it up a notch. It’s the same tablet experience, except you are drawing directly on screen. I have used a Cintiq for a number of years owning the 21″ and then the 22″. These tablets always retailed for over $2,000. When I saw a Cintiq for only $650 USD, I was very interested. Check out my video review and share this experience with me as I put it through its paces. Decide if it’s worthy of bearing the Wacom name.
