Wacom tablets

Wacom have released their new line-up of tablet devices which they'll be showcasing for the first time in the UK at Focus on Imaging (stand N9) from 4 - 7 March 2012.


New features of the Intuos5 range include multi-touch gesture support for intuitive input, an Express View display and wireless capabilities. The tablets have an ergonomic, ambidextrous design and come in a matte-black, soft-touch finish.

Customisable ExpressKeys (six on small size and eight on both medium and large sizes) and one Touch Ring, with a four-function toggle will help users streamline their workflow and the ambidextrous design allows right-handed and left-handed users to simply rotate the tablet 180 degrees for easy access to the ExpressKeys and Touch Ring.

Four Intuos5 models are being introduced. Three Intuos5 touch models, featuring both pen and multi-touch in sizes small, medium and large and one pen-only Intuos5 tablet in medium.

All sizes of Intuos5 can be converted to a wireless tablet by installing the Wireless Accessory kit, sold separately on Wacom's e-store. The kit includes a rechargeable battery that charges  through USB, a RF module that plugs into the tablet and a receiver that plugs into a USB port on the computer.

Intuos5 pen

The Intuos5 pen registers 2048 levels of pen pressure and up to 60 degrees of pen tilt, allowing the pen to emulate the same feel, response and effects derived from working with traditional tools such as paint brushes, markers and pens. In addition, Intuos5 features Wacom's proprietary Tip Sensor technology, which means that pressure-sensitive effects can start with an incredibly light touch. The Grip Pen also features a pressure-sensitive eraser and two side switches that can be customised for commands such as double-click and right-click.


The Intuos5, available today, comes in four models: Intuos5 touch Small (£199.99), Medium (£329.99), Large (£429.99) and Intuos5 pen-only Medium (£269.99). Each Intuos5 can be extended with the Wacom Wireless Accessory Kit priced at £34.99. All prices are including VAT.
