Wacom launches new range of Intuos tablets & digital drawing pen

Wacom has unveiled new graphics tablets and drawing tools during IFA 2015 in Berlin.


Wacom has used the IFA tech show in Berlin to unveil a new range of its Intuos graphics tablets as well as a cloud-connected digital drawing pen and a new stylus for iPad.

The new generation of Intuos tablets are available in two sizes, three colours and four bundles with different creative software for different types of artists to download. Confusingly, however, not every bundle is available in every size and colour.

Those bundles include: Intuos Art, Intuos Comic, Intuos Photo and Intuos Draw. The small tablet's active area is 152 x 95mm, while the medium is 216 x 135mm, and the colours available are white, mint blue and black.

The new tablets form the Pen & Touch part of the range, which sits alongside the Pro range in Wacom's line-up. Read on to find out more about Wacom's brand new tablets and creative tools, and to take a closer look at their new features.

The new range offers 1,024 pen pressure-sensitivity levels and there's also multi-touch capability on the tablet itself that lets you zoom or rotate your work.


You'll also find four customisable ExpressKeys on the tablet to add shortcuts to regularly used tools and functions.

The first of the four tablets is the Intuos Draw, which comes with access to ArtRage Lite and free tutorials. It's only available in small as a pen-only version (which means there are no multi-touch capabilities on the tablet itself), and comes in white or blue.

Price: £54.99


Second is Intuos Art, which comes with Corel Painter Essentials, designed to offer a realistic painting experience. It's available in small or medium, and comes in black or blue.

Price: £74.99 – small, £149.99 – medium


Third in the range is the Intuos Photo, which is designed for photo editors. It comes with Corel PaintShop Pro and Corel AfterShot Pro for Windows users, and Macphum Creative Kit and Corel AfterShort Pro for Mac users.

This one is available in small and comes in black.

Price: £74.99

In addition to the Intuos updates, Wacom has also been busy working on the Bamboo Spark, a new pen that lets you draw directly into a note pad as if it were a traditional pen, but with the push of a button you can sync whatever you just drew to the cloud to refine digitally.

Last but not least, Bamboo also unveiled a series of new Bamboo Stylus products, including the new Fineline 2 stylus for iPad during IFA. It is a fine-tip stylus that connects to your iPad with Bluetooth and works with the Bamboo Paper app as well as other creative software.

The Fineline 2 will be available this autumn for £39.99 in four colours: black, grey, blue or gold.
