Wacom’s All-New Line of Bamboo Pen Tablets
Featuring new sleek designs, patented pressure-sensitive pens, wireless adaptability (in Bamboo Capture and Bamboo Create only) and outstanding software bundles that are ideal for each individual use case, the updated features of the Bamboo family reflect Wacom’s commitment to creating intuitive input devices that allow people to express themselves in a natural fashion.
Bamboo’s pressure-sensitive, battery-free and cordless pen is the soul of the brand experience, delivering precise input control and a true pen-on-paper feel. Whether note-taking, editing, sketching or painting, the pen is the ideal tool to use when working with software applications, especially those creative applications that support pressure sensitivity. One can even erase mistakes with the pen’s digital eraser.
Bamboo Capture ($99.95 USD) offers pen and multi-touch input in a single device. The silver and black accented tablet is geared to the 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.
Bamboo Create ($199.95 USD), also in stylish silver and black, provides 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. Make a mistake? No worries. Just use the pressure-sensitive eraser on the other end of the pen to fix your error. Bamboo Create is ideal for home arts and crafts projects, photo editing as well as scrapbooking. Although larger than its tablet brethren, it is still totally portable and will fit easily into any laptop bag or backpack. Bamboo Create also supports the Bamboo wireless module and ships with Corel® Painter™ Essentials, Adobe Photoshop Elements and Autodesk Sketchbook Express for the most complete creative software application bundle in the Bamboo line.
Bamboo works with Mac® and PC operating systems and will support Microsoft®’s next generation operating system, Windows® 8.
Wireless input is now available for Bamboo Capture and Bamboo Create. The plug-n-play RF module, sold as a $39 (USD) accessory on Wacom’s e-store, fits into the slot on the side of the tablet to enable wireless connectivity. The simple, no-cable module connects to any desktop or laptop for hours of wireless freedom.
