Wacom Intuos4 Pen Tablets

Wacom has released the new Intuos4 pen tablet with a change in design and new features. The Intuos4 is now available in four different wide-format sizes, S ($229), M ($349), L ($469), and XL ($789).

Intous4 now features the new Wacom Tip Sensor which allows precision and control with only a single gram of pen pressure. It now offers 2,048 levels of pen pressure sensitivity which up from 1,024 for the Intuos3.

Another new feature is the finger-sensitive Touch Ring, which allows you to control up to four different functions in each application for on-the-fly adjustments such as zooming, scrolling, brush size, canvas rotation, and more.

The eight programmable ExpressKeys are now grouped on one side, with OLED illuminated labels, which is a nice addition. If you are left handed, just rotate the tablet 180° degrees, and change a control panel setting, to adjust the tablet from a right-handed to a left-handed configuration.

The new weighted pen stand and pen holder also functions as a handy twist-off storage compartment for pen nibs and handy nib removal tool. Also included is the newly redesigned five-button mouse. Make sure to check out Wacom for more information on all the new features.

So is the Intuos4 worth the upgrade? Let us know what you think.

    Hi, I’m a younger illustrator (15 years, eek!), who, unfortunately has a low budget, and so I currently own a bamboo which does do me good for now, but is it a good idea to buy one of these if money is tight? They only just fit my budget and I figure that having one of these, which I have estimated are around 6/7 times better than the bamboo (taking pressure / size etc into account), will be largely beneficial.

    The only gripe I have is the size – I have grown used to my bamboo and sometimes the size is a plus, as it allows me to do more work with less effort. Is having a large tablet tiring on large projects that can leave you working for up to 2-10 hours at a time?
