New and amazing Wacom Cintiq 24HD announced
Wacom is on fire. After the company presented the Bamboo Stylus (digital pen for the iPad) or the Inkling (digital pen for… any notebook actually), now it’s time to present to all of us the most incredible gadget: the amazing Cintiq 24HD.
The Cintiq family is the high-end range of professional tablets from Wacom, a dream comes true for any designer, illustrator or graphic artist. Basically is all about to translate the good things of your favorite graphic tablet to a monitor, as you can draw over the screen.
The new Wacom product comes with 24 inches and HD, with a resolution of 1920 x 1200 and 2048 pressure levels. Now, a gadget like this costs about 2,500 euros, so if you want this, you should think twice if your really need it.
A few years ago I was a proud Cintiq 12WX owner, the little brother of the presented product, and I should say it’s a great gadget, but it’s not for me. I sale it a few weeks later and continue working with my Intuos4. I just got the feeling when I was drawing that the screen precision was way low than my tablet. And at the same cost, I preferred a 27 inches monitor and the best graphic tablet, instead the 12WX.
The true is, before you buy a product such as the new Cintiq 24HD, I recommend to really think through pros and cons, and if you have the chance, get your hands on. Perhaps it’s the most expensive product, but that doesn’t mean it’s the best product for what you might need. Besides, there are great artists which do amazing stuff with just a plain Wacom Bamboo… or even pencil and paper.
