Wacom Cintiq 13HD Interactive Pen Display Review
In this video, MacMall takes a look at the Wacom Cintiq 13HD interactive pen display.
If you’re a creative pro, you’re probably at least somewhat aware of Wacom tablets. Founded in 1983, Wacom introduced the Intuos line of tablets in 1998, forever releasing graphic designers from the dark ages of attempting to design with their hand wrapped around a mouse. In 2001, the Wacom Cintiq was born, forever making pros without it jealous of those who did.
In case you’re not familiar with this line of interactive pen displays, the Wacom Cintiq tablet allows creatives to express themselves a fluently in the digital world as they would on paper. Long before laptops had touch screens or tablets invaded our lives, the Wacom Cintiq interactive pen displays allowed designers to create directly on their display, all with the pressure and tilt responsiveness that made the Wacom Intuos the industry leading graphic tablet a few years prior.
The Wacom Cintiq 13HD features:
- seamless pen-on-screen interaction and utmost flexibility
- Adjustable stand, allowing you to work at 3 different angles
- 178° viewing angle for easier collaboration
- 16.7 million color display
- Pro Pen with 2048 levels of pressure sensitivity
- 4 Express Keys for in-app shortcut mapping
- Rocker Ring
- HD 1920×1080 display
- Compact carrying case for the Pro Pen
Since its launch, the Cintiq has come quite a long way to improve its specs while lowering the cost. Yes, the beautiful tool that was once only found at animation studios, video game developers, and advertising agencies is now available at a price point that the rest of us can swallow.
