Wacom announced three new pen tablets, the Bamboo Connect, Bamboo Capture and Bamboo Create designed to “bring ideas and creativity to life by delivering a flexible and fun computing experience”. These pen tablets have sleek design and comes with pressure-sensitive, battery-free and cordless pen that delivers precise input control and a true pen-on-paper feel.
The Bamboo Connect is a pen-only tablet and ideally suited for visual communicators who embrace pen usage for digital inking, doodling and white-boarding. It has a low-profile design with green accents. It comes with Autodesk Sketchbook Express and turns on the digital inking functionality in the latest versions of Microsoft’s Office Suite.
The Bamboo Capture features pen and multitouch input in a single device. It is made for photo enthusiast or novice designer seeking a fun way to turn ordinary photos into extraordinary ones using the pen’s 1024 levels of pressure with included software, Adobe Photoshop Elements and Autodesk’s Sketchbook Express. It comes with silver and black accent.
Lastly, the Bamboo Create offers 2X the work space than Bamboo Capture to give creative customers more freedom of movement when making broad pen, pencil or brush strokes on the tablet surface. You use the pressure-sensitive eraser on the other end of the pen to fix your error. It is ideal for home arts and crafts projects, photo editing as well as scrapbooking. Other than Sketchbook Express and Photoshop Element, the Create also comes with Corel Painter Essentials.
All these Bamboo pen tablets works with Mac and PC. The $39 plug-n-play wireless module is available for Capture and Create, for connecting to computer wirelessly. The Connect, Capure and Create are priced at $79.95, $99.95 and $199.95 respectively.
