Wacom Cintiq 24HD graphics tablet offers fine art options

Tiny brushstrokes and 2000 sensitity levels on pro graphics slate

Several tablets that we’ve looked at of late have had stylii so they can be used for drawing and freehand text entry. However, professional illustrators soon notice the limitations of such devices. A limited number of pressure sensitivity levels and fairly crude line drawing options mean even the better tablet apps such as SketchBook Pro can’t do your graphics skills justice.

The Wacom Cintiq 24HD is aimed at designers, illustrators, animators and video editors. It recognises 2048 levels of pressure and 40 angles of pen tilt. The tablet takes the form of a 24in 1920x1200-pixel display that is calibrated for the most colour-critical work. Wacom's proprietary Tip Sensor technology recognises as little as 1g of pressure allowing for very fine artwork to be produced.

The Wacom Cintiq 24HD goes onsale in October and costs £1999 inc VAT.
