Which would you recommend for photoshop?
Do you use touch inputs when editing, or is the pen better as its more accurate?
This small simple one is only £40 from non tax paying Amazon.
One fairly good looking review suggests it too light on features:
this tablet has no buttons whatsoever - no form of input except for the pen and the left, right, and middle mouseclick that it can trigger. Therefore there is no way to zoom or scroll in your software using this tablet - you have to click on zoom or scroll buttons with your mouse or with the tablet pen. Any actions like undo, save, copy, etc. must all be done using a keyboard, or laboriously using the menus of your application. There is also no eraser on the reverse end of the pen (which most other Wacom tablets have).
The ePhotozine review of the touch one (£70) seems cool. And suggests the extra £30 for the 4 buttons and the eraser is well worth it.
Finally the size does not look restrictive - what's your experience?
Many thanks for any comments you make.

I have a Bamboo and prefer using the pen. I wouldn't get the smallest size, that makes editing too fiddly, even with the pen.
Hi Stuart, I prefer the pen as well, read some feedback that the touch can be activated by wrist / fingers when in use. tbh, find the small one very good, initially went small re cost as not sure would get on with it, and find it excellent
Have one of the pen and touch tablets - never use touch - don't find it very useful, so turned it off.
Would go for a slightly larger tablet if you have the cash, especially if you have a bigger screen.
Something like this
Yes it has touch function - can't see one without, so turn it off.
without mouseclick, i can zoom or scroll images c# at any directions i want. that would be awesome. by the way the pen is my favorite one too.
