I liked the one I got. but didnt like the touch, and its not worth the $50 extra. so Im returing it for the non touch version of the bamboo.

I have the cheap as chips Bamboo and find it a boon with LR & PS.

I can only imagine that the higher models would be correspondingly nicer to use.


Cheers,

1. Yes, IMHO worth every penny.
2. Yes 90% more then the mouse. (only use the mouse for web browsing)
3. Wacom Brand
4. Wacom Pen, better fine tuning ability when used in photosop.

I personally have the Wacom Intuos 4 Large 8x12 and love it!!! so much more you can do with a tablet. I am also planning on picking up a smaller tablet from Wacom for the road for use with the laptop.

wow My Daughter just bought me a wacom bamboo pen. Its bog standard but I am so pleased that she managed to get out of her bedroon and down to the shops ;)

Its so hard to use there must be a learning curve to these things. I really want to get used to it so I can make selections for my photo montage's but so far i can't get to grips with it.

Usually a few weeks of constant use and your set. But you have to use it for everything, even try web surfing. Just sit there and open folder on your PC and what not, but the big tablets are easier to work on cause the are much more equal to the screen size, by that I mean the feel you get in the work area. Good luck.

I only find tablets helpful with drawing. Unless you're doing an insane amount of work on a picture that I cant really think of then I dont see why it would be useful.

Hey, you got a good point here. I spend so much money on my camera and photoshop and now a WACOM!! AARRGGHH!!:mad:

Well, I guess it's less pressure on the hand than using a mouse in photoshop. Someone stated that using a mouse is like using a rock to work in photoshop. oh well, I will let my boss get one for me!

They'll work fine for someone who does cover images for magazines like Elle and Esquire. I know at least two retouchers who work at that level and use a Bamboo.

Totally awesome! I am getting one asap!
Also you website is awesome!!!:eek:

I've got an Intuous 4 small and I freakin love it. My editing skills and creativity have expanded by leaps and bounds by being able to have a pen in my hand. Go for it.
