In an effort to increase workflow, I've been evaluating a Wacom Tablet for my real estate photography. I picked up a BT-W Intuos unit over the weekend. This is not the pro series but seems to have all that I wanted. I wanted to see which one most of the group uses and why.
One thing I've noticed so far is that I cannot seem to replicate the ability to zoom in and out where ever I leave my mouse cursor.
We've talked about Wacom tablets in the past. Those discussions convinced me to purchase an Intuos Pro.
The first thing that blew me away is that this is a fantastic mouse replacement for anyone who has multiple large monitors. I have two 27" monitors. A 27" iMac, and a 27" monitor. I never realized how annoying using a standard mouse is until I started using a tablet! Instead of dragging a mouse across two 27" monitors! With a tablet, you just move directly to any location on the two screens you want to go to. It’s amazing!
My second discovery was multi-touch. That is, you can use your fingers instead of the pen. To click, to double-click, to scroll, to zoom. There is a lot to learn. After a few days, I’m still learning all the multi-touch finger gestures and I haven’t even got to learn the pressure sensitive pen features built into Photoshop. A Wacom tablet is well worth the money just for the ways it replaces the standard mouse, let alone the pressure sensitive features.
Which Wacom tablet do you use?
