The Wacom brand is better known for their tablets. And when we talk of tablets here, we are talking about graphic tablets that creative professionals use to create and manipulate art. At the office of American Technologies Inc. (ATI), their local distributor, the company launched their latest version of the Intuos tablets for the professional crowd.
The Intuos5 tablets come in 5 version with two of them (Intuos5 S and Intuos5 M) not having multi-touch functionality while the other three (Intuos5 touch S, Intuos5 touch M, and Intuos5 touch L) having the functionality.
The Intuos5 tablets also feature Express Keys (6 for the S Models, 8 for the M and L Models) as well as a Multi-Function Touch Ring that are all configurable to the users’ needs. The Intuos5 Grip Pen is included with every Intuos5 tablet. The pen is able to register 2048 levels of pen pressure and up to 60 degrees of pen tilt that allows emulates the same feel, response, and effects from working with traditional tools. The Grip Pen also features pressure-sensitive eraser and two side switches that can be customized for commands such as double-click and right-click.
All Intuos5 models have the option, with the optional Wireless Accessory to work wirelessly without connecting the included USB cable. This allows for more freedom of movement away from the workstation. The tablets also include bundled software such as Adobe Photoshop Elements 10.0, Corel Painter Sketch Pad, Autodesk SketchBook Express 2011, Nik Color Efex Pro 3.0 WE6, and Wacom’s own Brushes 3.
The Intuos5 tablets will range from PhP12,690 for the S up to PhP27,390 for the touch L. For those that are not satisfied with the size of the L, Wacom is still selling the Intuos4 XL for PhP41,990.
