Psh, yeah, my Intuos3 is just fine for me, but the 4 is just so damn sexy, I can't NOT want it!

I have a Bamboo and it's perfectly good. Then again, I only use it to retouch photographs.

[Personal stuff]
My digital setup has an adjustable active area: I can either work on a 6"x8" area or a larger one like 20"x22"(maybe bigger; but I haven't got the time to test it yet)... and cost me less than 200$ (CDN)! Perfect for the beginner that I am!

I can use it on my LCD, my desk, a laptop, paper, trace my drawings and heck, even draw without a surface (will lack precision, but still useful; sometimes)
[End of boast]



Wacom Intuos 4

Now, if you are working as a professional and have the funding, I say go for it! Or any new tools that can make you more productive and advance your art.

If you suck on a bamboo though (or whatever tool you're using), stop dreaming and practice more (and save money).

There! Any one has a different opinion?


Thanx for sharing the preview ^gucken!

I don't know about sucking on a bamboo having much to do with it, there's a learning curve with any tablet, but the bamboo seems too small to me and not enough sensitivity to be useful. For painting at least. But you are right that a new expensive tool won't improve your art skills, you have to do that yourself.

As for the Intuos 4, I like the design and the scroll wheel, plus the LED displays, a good way to get someone using shortcut keys is have the special ones you've mapped displayed. Also good if you're learning the shortcuts in a new program. 2048 pressure levels is impressive, but at half that much with the Intuos 3 I haven't had any problems. So for myself I'll hold off on getting another tablet. Actually I'd rather replace it with a Cintiq, if anything.

it looks very awesome, but i think it costs a bit too much. doesn't look quite cool enough for me to buy another tablet.
my tablet may not be great, but it works well enough. (acutally, i think most of the problems arise cuz my computer dun like both my tablet and my drawing program open at once...)

I couldn't really justify going from Intuos3 to Intuos4 for how much it would cost; honestly, I don't use the buttons on the tablet, anyway - I'm more comfortable with one hand on the keyboard while I paint. What's left once you take the buttons away from the Intuos4 is double the sensitivity, but do I really need that?

When my Intuos3 breaks is when I'll probably go to Intuos4 - unless I could get a used Intuos3 for half the price. :D

yeah, i never use the buttons on the tablet, either! that's why i have the same opinion about the intuos4 series like you :)

and i don't think that you can really feel a difference between 1024 and 2048 pressure levels

nervene Featured By Owner Mar 28, 2009
The difference between the 512 levels of the Graphire4 and the 1024 of Intuos3 is quite minimal to begin with; I can't really imagine that I'd notice going even higher, from 1024 to 2048 - maybe, but would that slight change be worth hundreds of dollars? It's kind of like going from brain surgery precision to atomic clock precision. The main reason I switched from Graphire to Intuos was for the tilt recognition, which I get a lot of use out of - most of the other features were just icing on the cake.

Touch Ring is fun, but the most amazing feature is it can combine with rotating canvas in PS CS4 and Painter.

The rest is just a facelift.

But both Intuos 2 and 3 are still too good to replace, I will wait for the 5th generation.

just a quick question:
mh you own a cintiq, don't you.. is the "rotate canvas" compability still attractive to you, then? :o

I found out that digital rotating is much more lighter. Rotating a Cintiq hit everything on my desk, my cup, my pen stand, my pie...

Well, all of it's features totally rock, but I don't have that kind of money right now and I don't feel I'm worthy of it yet. I'll stick to my Graphire 4 until I'm good at digital painting, then I'll spend the bucks on something that may make my life easier. Right now though, I have no need for all of those features.

Well I have the Bamboo Fun, and that would be worrth an upgrade to. But if I was going to buy anything, I would go completely over the top and buy a Tablet PC or better yet a Cintiq.

I just shat myself a little.
I never understood why they didn't do it this way in the first place (with regard to the buttons all being on one side) and while the extra sensitivity levels are useless to me, the reduced activation pressure isn't, I always felt like the pressure was a bit weird. This looks sick and if the price is right and I can sell my Intuos 3 for close enough then I might buy it.

I'm happy with the tablet I've got right now. It's more than I ever expected to get in the first place, so I definitely can't complain. When it stops working (which hopefully won't be for a LONG time, since I only just got it this year) I might consider getting this one. Depends on the price.

I'm also a big believer in not replacing something until it's broken beyond repair (or repairs will cost more than replacing it). I don't understand how some people can just be constantly getting the 'new thing'. I've got friends who get a new iPod everytime one comes out, or get a new phone whenever they're favourite brand makes a new one. And I KNOW how much money they have access to, and they definitely can't afford to be doing that.

Granted, they're the ones always complaining about being broke ;) and then they wonder why I've got more money than them when they work 3 or 4 times as much as I do.

Die neuen features sind voll auf PS CS4 abgestimmt. Butterweiches Zoomen und Drehen sollten mit dem Intuos 4 ein leichtes sein. Von daher: Haben will! (aber nicht leisten kann, zumindest nicht im Moment)
