These are awesome, and I really wish that Wacom would make them in smaller sizes for those of us who can't or won't justify the cost of the 21" model. I generally tend to sketch on smaller pads anyhow, so something like a 12" or 15" model would be better suited to my workflow and pocketbook.

The closest thing I've seen so far is this modified MacBook that was shown at the recent Macworld. Cool idea, but still too spendy for this cheapskate.

I was recently thinking I want to get one of these, so I am very interested in what you all have to say. I had the (apparently mistaken) notion that I could just use it every now and then when I want a more "hand-drawn" feel to an illustration. How much of a learning curve are we talking about? 2y2, thanks for the breakdown of the different levels. I too would appreciate hearing folks talk about what they use them for and which one they have been using. If anyone wants to "illustrate" their reply that would be even better!



If you go to the expense of getting a tablet, and invest the time it will take to become functional with it, I guarantee that you will not want to use it "every now and then". I use mine 100% when working in Photoshop and Illustrator. It did not take a really long time to get used to it, but you definitely have to just force yourself to do without the mouse for a couple of days and use the tablet whenever it makes sense. I feel sad when I hear about people giving up before giving it a real chance. Maybe the type of tablet makes the difference. I have the Intuos3 and it comes with a little chart where you write down the shortcuts for your programmed hot keys. I still have it taped to the bottom of my monitor, but I don't really look at it any more. It just becomes second nature like any other shortcuts. Your fingers just go to the right place after a while.

There have been several lengthy threads discussing tablet specs that are filled with lots of good info. You might try searching this forum for "tablet". I would post the links, but there are so many.

Thank you inkspotts, I will do as you suggest and search the forum. If I can figure out how to do that...

Right below this post there is a line of text links that reads:
Forum Home >> Vector Illustration >> wacom

Click on the one that says "Vector Illustration" and you will be taken to the front of the Vector forum.
Scroll all the way to the bottom of that page and enter "tablet" into the text box. The dropdown menu should already read "Vector Illustration" and then click "Search" button.

There are two smaller models the DTF-521 15" and the DTF-720 17"

I use it all the time with all my software, really, i don't use my mouse anymore, and it's healthier for you.
