Tech Tuesday—Wacom Cintiq 22HD Touch

May 7, 2013

Wacom calls the Cintiq 22HD Touch "a natural extension for your senses" and that's an accurate description for one of the latest models in its graphics tablet line. With an interactive display and multi-touch support, you can pinch-to-zoom with one hand and retouch with the other using a Wacom pen.

The 21.5", 1920 x 1080 HD display rests on a stand, which can be rotated to portrait or landscape and can be adjusted to a comfortable angle for your working conditions and to help keep stress on your hands and wrists to a minimum. Touch strips, toggle buttons and 16 Express Keys can be customized so everything you need is just a touch or tap away.

While I'm a huge fan of the smaller Intuos5 Touch, working on an interactive screen takes the experience to a whole new, and much more efficient, level. At $2,500, the Cintiq 22HD Touch is a substantial investment but the device (and its $3,700, 24HD Touch sibling) is a real time saver and, we think, well worth the money.
