Photoshop World: Wacom intros Intuos 3
By Macworld staff
Wacom has revamped its Intuos range or pen tablets.
The Intuos3 system is available in three sizes, A6, A5 and A4. New features include customizable, integrated ExpressKeys four button keypads and Touch Strips which act like a scroll bar with presets to allow zooming and scrolling. These are located on the left and right side of the tablet for direct access to functions without having to look away from the tablet.
The new Intuos3 tablets offer 5,080dpi resolution double that of the Intuos2 and the provided pen offers 1,024 levels of pressure sensitivity. The pen comes with changeable pen nibs including an airbrush, a stroke pen, a felt tip pen, and a grip pen designed with ergonomics in mind. Each tablet recognizes if a pen is being held at an angle, up to 60-degrees, for realistic paint brush simulation, says Wacom.
The Intuos range ships with a new 5-button cordless mouse, which, like the pen is cordless and battery less due to Wacom's patented Penabled technology.
The tablets are bundled with Corel Painter Essentials2.
