The Intuos4 line from Wacom comprises leading-edge “digitizing tablets” that are used as alternative input devices for creating original hand-drawn art or editing digital art files of all kinds. All the models have been reworked with a black-on-black scheme; are slimmer than their predecessors; and have a new 16:9 aspect ratio. Operations are handled via 8 programmable ExpressKey buttons and a four-function iPod-style Touch Dial, and the tablets work with both PC and Macintosh computer rentals.
Along with redesigning the tablet, Wacom revamped the well-reviewed product line with sizes ranging from small, medium and large to extra large (XL), the model that CRE Rentals now rents! While all sizes of the tablet are capable and produce excellent results, the XL Pen Tablet is the one that serious digital artists will crave. As part of a workflow with digital video and an AJA Io HD rentals, Wacom’s Intuos4 XL is a dream device, especially with a redesigned pen that is far more responsive, supporting 2,048 sensitivity levels as opposed to the previous model’s 1,024.
Power and flexibility with a Pen Tablet
The unit’s ExpressKeys default to Alt, Shift, Ctrl or the Mac equivalents, while the Radial menu is an onscreen display that can be programmed for various individual operations, and is particularly useful for launching Photoshop Actions. It comes with presets for basic operations like cutting, copying and pasting, and provides a range of media controls for music and video files. There are also four Touch Dial presets for cycling through layers, automating scroll and zoom, rotating the canvas and selecting brush sizes.
The LED labels are extremely helpful and keep your work on track. The Intuos4 XL Tablet is a phenomenal product and a tremendous improvement over previous models. So, if you’re in the business of inking, scanning, drawing and retouching still or motion graphics – from editing video to doing digital photo retouching – this is the finest tool in the toolbox, bar none!
