Pen based input device RRS feed

  • Question

  • Greetings,

    It's getting to the point at which I'd be well served to consider purchasing some type of pen based input device to use with Expression Design. I've never use such a device and the only computer based graphics programs I've used were the earlier versions of AutoCad and AutoCad Lite.  So this is basically new terrain for me.

    I'd appreciate it if someone might suggest a good but fairly inexpensive input device that would be suitable for a beginner.

    Peace,

    Phroneo

  • Check out the various Wacom tablets. They're very accurate. I hear that the new Bamboo is pretty good but I haven't tried it myself. Take a look here: http://www.wacom.com/productinfo/

  • Hi Phroneo,

    I am with Annie on this one, a Wacom would be a good choice and they have quite a range.

  • Hello Annie & Barkest,

    Wacom it is!.  I've been looking at some of their products and they do have a range.

    Thank you for the suggestion.
