After looking this up on Amazon I see three different versions: Capture Pen and Touch, Create Pen and Touch, and Splash Pen. What is the difference between the three?

Here is the link. It may not be an exact match for the product on Woot today but I still would like to know if maybe a different version would suit me better. But I have no idea what a capture pen does in relation to a capture or splash pen.

The Splash is pen only (and black). The Capture, which is what Woot! is selling, apparently supports touch. The Create is a bigger version of the Capture. At least this is what I understood from a vendor a few days ago.

They are kind of wrinkly looking yes, but its just a texture so you know if you arent looking at it that you are touching the buttons and not the tablet.

Does anybody know if this model is one of the ones that causes excessive nib wear? I've been wanting to get another tablet for my son but I'm not really clear still which wacom's have the textured surface that has been problematic.

Appreciate any input.

The tablet software asks if you are using this in left-handed or right-handed orientation and switches the buttons accordingly. Seems perfectly ambidextrous to me.

Well, for those of you moaning about missing it during the woot-off that just ended, here's your chance. Same price, same model, more time to think about it and pull the trigger to buy 3.

You can read the comments from that day HERE but you'll need to weed through the big debate about how many people Rambo killed.

If you paid 200.00 for the other one you have it's likely not this one. There are multiple Bamboo models and there is one that sells for 200.00 (Bamboo Create) and one that sells for 99.00 (Bamboo Capture) which is this one.

I have a Grapphire 2 I bought about 12 years ago. I like it, it suits me fine for the causal user I am.

Any opinions about this being a decent enough upgrade?

Is this the same one on Amazon for 67.99?

If so, it's only like a $12 difference for a new one for a prime member like me? Just curious...

Bought one of these the last time they showed up on woot! Very, very happy with it.

It's made Aperture and Photoshop much more useable, and I really enjoy using it.

For the price you can't beat it, recommend it for every amateur photographer.

I upgraded from a Graphire 4, and I will tell you that if you are running Windows 7 or above, it's absolutely worth it. And these are the reasons:

1. Pressure sensitivity: P.S. went to pieces when I upgraded from WinXP to Win7. It's not that my tablet had changed, and I was able to download new Wacom drivers, I had an official copy of Photoshop, it just didn't work one day and would work the next. Sometimes even when I would close and restart the program. Since upgrading, I have had no problems, pressure sensitivity works 100% every time.

2. Form Factor: The active area is the same, but the buttons are better oriented on the left side of the tablet instead of the top (and it's flippable for you lefties out there). It's also about half as thick! Hellooo beautiful! I love love love how thin it is, I can pick it up with one hand and feel like I'm just holding a notebook. Biggest improvement over the old Graphires.

3. Surface: Ok, I changed my mind, this is the biggest improvement. I really like how the Capture's surface feels like paper. It's not rough, but it's textured. Like, um, well, like paper. I came from traditional drawing so I really am used to how my pencil feels on paper and so this is my favorite. Plus, in order to get the sensitivity levels I wanted on the Graphire 4, I had to make it sensitive enough that to draw a thin line I would have to barely barely touch pen to the surface, and with the smooth surface it was often hard to tell. Especially with the clear cover over the top, I was always mis-judging. So I love this surface.

4. Price: For a casual user, $50 is great for a Capture. I think I bought my used Graphire 4 for $50 when I first got it, and it wasn't even a refurb. I paid over $100 for my Capture new on a great sale last year.

Oh, I do really miss the scroll button on the Graphire 4 though. The finger-touch system is meh. I always forget to turn it on and off and I just like the scroll system better. So I use my mouse instead.

Paint.NET will work fine, but you won't have pressure sensitivity. They took support for that feature out because it was breaking alot of other things and being inconsistent. Plans are to bring it back in a future version, unknown when.

There is touch (finger) input on this device, but I wouldn't personally use it like a touchpad. It's not great, decent for what they advertise it for, zooming/scrolling/shortcuts. I have had large laptop touchpads and smart tablet screens that were more responsive and did better with multi-touch. If you want both drawing and touchpad capability, this would work, but if you want touchpad, get something dedicated for that. (Esp ones that have built-in scrolling detection along the edges of the touchpad)

The pens on the Connect, Splash, and Capture are the same. And they don't erase, by the way. The pen on the Create (which is a bigger tablet) has the eraser.

(I was pretty upset that the pen didn't erase. Even my old Graphire 4 has erase on it's pen. I had to dedicate a button on my tablet to shortcut to the erase tool, but it was handy to have it built into the pen instead of having to go find the erase tool each time then go back to whatever my paintbrush settings were)

I own one of these, with a wireless adapter (strongly recommended). They're fast, responsive, and incredibly precise- Wacom easily has the best tablets- even at this level.

The only real concern is the active area- It's about the size of a large notecard, and I wouldn't recommend this particular size with anything much larger than a 15.3" monitor.

That said, it's still a great price point for hobbyists.

Works okay as a signature pad? It's precise enough to be, but it's not really designed for it.

Ok, so apparently Wacom says that the eraser functionality is built into the tablet, and the Splash doesn't have that. They also said:

Mathias Lala: Hi i have the bamboo capture pen it doesn't have a eraser but the bamboo create pen dose. will the bamboo create pen work on the bamboo capture touch ?

wacom: 55 days ago
Bamboo Capture does include the eraser functionality. It is only the Bamboo Connect and Bamboo Splash models that do not have the eraser. The pen itself doesn't have much of a visual indicator that it has the eraser, but you can check your tablet properties to ensure that its activated and working. If you need help, give us a call. 1-800-922-6613


So I have tested this, and it doesn't work. They say the Capture pend should be erasing, but it doesn't work for me.

=======================
Try reading the negative reviews on Amazon. If you don't mind that its Chinese (so am I), support may be difficult, drivers (don't support W8) and may be flawed. Battery in the pen? Too many gotchas for the future. Their support page shows who you can call in China.

I got one last Woot, and I'm still on my first nib. I suspect wear rate has a lot to do with the user. There are 4 extra nibs included and I hear they are easy to get and cheap for replacements.

I'd like to add the wireless to get rid of the cord, using mine for photo work and often to replace the mouse. Running Luminance HDR, GIMP, SilkyPix Pro 5, Fireworks and playing Sugar Crush... Doh!

Yes, no batteries to worry about in the Bamboo, I don't know how it works... must be by the will of Allah... or science.

They charge an arm & a leg for so-called "3dMouse" units that look like an overpriced remote control.

What I really want is a MacBook Pro with Retina display and a touch screen.


This pen tablet is not the same thing as a 3d mouse like from connexion.
This pen tablet is useless for 3d cad software as you dont need to freehand draw anything.
The 3d mouses are awesome as they are basically a 3d view control.
You dont need 3d mouse for any of the 3d cad software, it just saves time changing your views and is much more natural.
I use autodesk inventor every day with my 3d mouse.
I bought mine off ebay for $65.

You could probably get a wireless adapter for it so you can walk around, then program the buttons for "from current slide," "next slide," etc. and you could just casually hold it That'd be pretty neat!

FYI I just received this today and no pen was in the package. It's not too useful without the pen. I have contacted Wacom support and hope that they will be able to send me one. Hopefully I won't have to mail this back to Woot for a replacement/refund. Has anyone else had this happen?
