Hello everyone, I am thinking of buying a pressure sensitive tablet. Do you have any good advice? Maybe some hints about what to look for. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you Nikolaj

Wacom is indeed very good. I have the Intuos A5, and it is sufficient. Not that bigger wouldn''t be better, but the price takes quite a step up from there and the A4 version starts to be a major consideration with regard to desk space.

I also have the Wacom Intuos A5, and I highly recommend it. I don''t see any reason to buy any larger tablet, but that may just be me, I never do any strokes longer than an inch.

The pen is cordless and lightweight, it feels just like a regular pen. It even has an ''eraser'' on the other end. Other features: 1024 pressure levels, tilt sensitivity.

Drawing on the computer. Because of the pressure sensitivity in the pen, you can get almost the same feeling as when drawing with paper and pen.

People I''ve talked to before said that they rather use a 4x5 then a 6x9+. You only want to move your wrist, not your whole arm. If you need to get more detail, you just zoom in on the area of the drawing.

My wife just recently ordered a Wacom Graphire tablet for me. It''s only $100 but it only has 256 levels of pressure and no tilt sensitivity. (but it does come with a cordless mouse you use with it)

Although, I wouldn''t mind a Wacom PL-400. It has a built in flat screen.

E:cb woof!

Yes, please buy Wacom. I bought some other brand some time ago (can''t remember the name right now) and it was crap. The pen felt was horrible - it actually required a battery and was too heavy, and the surface of the tablet just didn''t feel "right". Do not be tempted to spend less on another brand. You really do get what you pay for.
