Re: TABLETS: Wacom Intuos 4 - Medium vs Large

Yes i am from Spain. Trust me, being a gear-head, i have been thinking about getting an intuos4 myself. At the studio there are some huge intuos3 monsters... i don't like the size too much, but i guess that size is necessary for working the apple 30'' cinema display. When you use small tablets with huge high res monitors, it seems impossible to keep the cursor from wobbling when hovering it over the surface.

Do you have a portfolio or something? I must say that you're the first spanish I meet that I feel interest to know more.

Re: TABLETS: Wacom Intuos 4 - Medium vs Large

I don't have a portfolio at the moment. It hasn't been too long since i wanted to focus my career as a retoucher. So far i have done some photography for small clients, and i recently landed at a Spanish studio where I will be a photo assistant. My idea is to use it whenever the studio is free as well as offering my work to established photogs "pro bono" just to do that, get myself a decent portfolio. You know there are more photographers than there are retouchers... hehe.

Re: TABLETS: Wacom Intuos 4 - Medium vs Large

Finally bought the tablet =D =D =D It ¡s another Universe working with this thing. I set it up to the less pressure, so the pen's nib duration will be longer, I just need the weight of the pen to draw But I'm thinking that the eraser of the pen is quite hard and due that, it can be used as the nib =D Should be a way to flip the functions of the pen, shouldn't it?

You a photog too? If so, Im sure you have some spare CTO flash gel sheet somewhere. Cut a rectangular piece and place it on the tablet to preserve the nib.

Yeah, I'm an ocassional photographer, haha. I don't have big flashes or gels, but will see to buy a gel sheet. I'm confortable painting with a very low pressure, but will try that.

Re: TABLETS: Wacom Intuos 4 - Medium vs Large

what would you guys say about getting m size intuos4 for 26" display?

i have worked with a4 intuos3 tablet with 30" cinema display earlier and found my hand getting tired with long lasting photoshop sessions (especially when clipping a lot with pen tool). SO i though to switch to smaller size to avoid such large movement and spare my hand.

my only concern is that if 26" is too large display for a5 size tablet.

Well... I have the medium sized and it works perfect in 21". Probably in 26" would work even better.

Re: TABLETS: Wacom Intuos 4 - Medium vs Large

I use a small tablet with a 30" monitor. I don't think you should choose a tablet based on the size of your monitor so much as the size you like to draw at. If you're an illustrator who's used to drawing at a large scale you might want a large tablet, but for most retouching I like to keep my elbow on the armrest and just flick my fingers and wrist to get around rather than making sweeps of my arm.

Best is to buy from somewhere with a good return policy and try it out. I'd start smaller than you think and only move up if you need to.
