Wacom’s new Intuos3 12×19 pen tablet is specifically designed for photographers, designers, artists and engineers who are using multiple large monitors or a large widescreen display such as the 30″ Apple Cinema HD display. Like the recently introduced Intuos3 6×11, the Intuos3 12×19 features an active area with an aspect ratio (height-to-width) that is a great match to the screen aspect ratio of either a widescreen display or standard displays used together. This provides optimal pen control and efficient use of the entire tablet.
The satin-gray finish of the Intuos3 12×19 gives it an “industrial” look that suits its no-nonsense brawn. With physical dimensions of about 17″ x 24″ and an active area of 228 square inches, the 12×19 delivers a lot of tablet for the suggested retail price of USD$779.95. It includes all the features that have made the Intuos3 line of pen tablets the de facto standard for serious photographers, designers and artists. These features include a patented cordless, battery-free Grip Pen for comfort, 1,024 levels of pressure sensitivity for control, programmable ExpressKeys for easy modifier keystrokes and keyboard shortcuts, and finger-sensitive Touch Strips for scrolling, zooming, controlling brush size and more. The Intuos3 12×19 also includes a unique feature for extra-fast navigation called QuickPoint.
