New Wacom Cintiq 16

New Wacom Cintiq 16

Wacom Cintiqs have always been some of the very best tools digital artists can get, granted you could afford them. Many of us instead might have had to sacrifice quality to get a taste of the experience - by purchasing any of the cheaper Chinese clones out there. 

Well, not anymore! With the release of the new Cintiq 16, you can now enjoy the Wacom quality without breaking the bank.

The new display shares the same stylus as higher-end products and is meant to be an entry-level introduction to pen displays for young creatives and hobbyists. It’s got a 15.6-inch screen with a 1920 x 1080 display, and its stylus, the Wacom Pro Pen 2, has 8,192 levels of pressure sensitivity and never needs to be charged. Check below for all the specifications.

Battery-free EMR with 8k Pressure Levels

The Wacom Pro Pen 2 has 8,192 levels of pressure sensitivity. It uses Electro Magnetic Resonance technology so there’s never need to charge.

High Accuracy: Low Activation Force, Tilt Recognition

The Pro Pen 2 offers precision and control. Low activation force and tilt recognition makes drawing on Wacom Cintiq feel as familiar as drawing on paper.
