Jason Chatfield reviews the Wacom Cintiq Companion Hybrid tablet

Ginger Meggs cartoonist and comedian Jason Chatfield has posted his review of the Wacom Cintiq Companion Hybrid drawing tablet after a month of use.

Boiling it all right down, do I like drawing on it? The answer is yes. I?ve worked full days on it while traveling for the last four weeks and it means I?m not pulling all-nighters to get my artwork done before I leave for a trip. I can get the exact same result on this tablet as I can on my big Cintiq 21 in the studio. It does take a minute or two to get used to the resolution if you run it in 1920 x 1080 but the definition is very impressive.

Whether it?s the right product for you is obviously going to depend on the kind of work you do, so it?s worth using a friend?s Android tablet to see how Photoshop and other mobile tablet apps work before you make the purchase.

The 32GB version runs $1,599.

Well, that was certainly useful information. Probably one of the most thorough reviews of the new Cintiq Hybrid I’ve seen.
