Wacom to release a new Cintiq 13HD


Last week Wacom, the creators of drawing tablets and displays for professionals, announced a new offering to their Cintiq line up. Wacom unveiled its first compact, full HD colour sketch pad. The new Cintiq 13HD delivers a professional pen driven on screen drawing experience in a new slimmer, lightweight design. With a 13-inch display boasting 16.7 million colours, with a 1980 x 1080 resolution this tablet looks like a wonderful addition to any illustrators studio. With a 178 degree viewing angle and a stand that can be adjusted to lie flat or positioned at angles of 22, 35, and 50 degrees. Wacom has also announced a new pen to go with the new display, but details are scarce on this. We do know that the new offering supports 2,048 levels of sensitivity and has tilt recognition like Wacom’s other offerings in this category. If this sounds too good to be true you can pick one up in April for around $1000 which is a price reduction of around $200 from their old 13 inch model.
