    Cintiq 24HD?

    Cintiq 24HD?



    http://www.engadget.com/2011/08/18/w...e-went-to-art/

    This newest model, the Cintiq 24HD has just been approved by the FCC and, while the documents don't reveal much, we presume it's a 24-inch (and HD-resolution) follow up to last year's device.

    Interesting. This will be the largest Cintiq yet...but I'm almost afraid of how high the price is going to be. I can easily see Wacom charging like $3000 -$4000 for this. an extra thousand the 3 inches, and another thousand for the "High Def"

    In a perfect world they'd put this model at $2000 and lower the price of the 21ux to $1500 or something...but of course this is Wacom.

    Wallets: prepare to be raped.

    Good news to hear about an updated display! I bought the last 21ux, and in a printmaker's world, it hasn't been 100% up to the job. Hard to color calibrate, especially where I have to work, which has no controlled lighting. Dark images are hard to see in a moderately lit environment. Compared to the laptop it's connected to, the brightness is just pitiful. On light images, such as sketching on a light background, it works like a dream, but it has been problematic for me on most projects, often making me bust out the intuos :/ Plus it has a dark stuck pixel not covered by warranty, bastards.

    Even with these complaints, I actually fear for Wacom. All in one computers and tablets with various pen technology different from Wacom's patented digitizer seem to be on the way. Lots of patents for new pen tech have been filed. They are only a computer accessory company. Once computers don't require their accessories for artists, what then?

    Either way, this is good news for now, thanks for posting.

    *also just noticed in the patent diagram that it has no rotation, just a kick stand like the 12wx, wtf

    I don't believe patent drawings necessarily reflect the final project; they just need to show the technology being patented.

    Just because there is a patent doesn't mean its ever gonna see the light of day. Apple patented a rolling/ball capacative pen a few months back that looks more stupid then anything.

    And just because another company has it owns Pen tech...that doesn't mean it will be useful to artists. Case in point N-trig. They are Wacoms only real form of competition in the portable on screen tablet market, and their digitizer's are horriable for art use.

    Personally, I think Wacom could do with some competition. I think we'd be seeing better products come out faster (higher resolution, easier calibration, more durable screens, more portable, whatever) if there were more options. Plus, I'm sure we'd all love to see a little competitive pricing

    I wonder if is the multi-touch one I've heard mention.

    Still, HD? Guess that means losing vertical res, fine for landscapes not so hot for figures and portrait format. Unless it's higher than 1080 which may be cool.

    God knows how much it'll be in the UK....

    But whats so innovative about this??? Just high res and bigger screen???? that's it? and they will charge 2 time extra amount. I wish if Wacom reduce the burden of too much of wire around the cintq and make it with inbuilt CPU. just like apple's modbook.

    The modbook isn't made by apple. The modification is made by a third party when you send them your macbook. They utilize the same wacom digitizer that currently exists in many tablet pc's, and it doesn't compare to the full sized cintiq. (loss of proper calibration around the edges is even more noticable.) As for having an onboard cpu, I strongly disagree with the idea; I prefer the freedom to select my own operating system and so on.

    Has anyone seen the other product on Wacom's Cintiq page? Looks like the concept from the FCC approval.

    EDIT: OMG! They -JUST- took it down! I'm not going crazy!
