Why use a pen tablet – Wacom Intous Pro review

Are you tired of the constant strain and discomfort caused by traditional computer peripherals, like a mouse? In a recent video, our tech-savvy host discussed the advantages of using a Wacom Intuos Pro tablet for various creative and productive tasks. In this blog post summary, we’ll explore the key takeaways from that video.

Why I use a pen tablet for all my work [VIDEO]

Ergonomics Redefined

One of the primary reasons the host prefers the Wacom tablet is the ergonomic advantage it offers. Using a mouse typically requires extending your arm and straining your neck, shoulders, and elbows. Over time, this can lead to painful conditions like tennis elbow and other discomforts. However, with the Wacom tablet, you work in a more relaxed and natural position, reducing the physical strain associated with mouse usage.

While it may take some time to adjust to the tablet’s different feel, with practice, it becomes a more comfortable and natural way to work.

Intuitive Touch and Gestures

The Wacom Intuos Pro isn’t just a digital pen and tablet; it also supports touch sensitivity and gestures. In the video we look at how you can move the pen slightly above the surface to control the mouse pointer. Hovering and making pinching gestures to zoom in and out provide a seamless editing and navigation experience.

Additionally, two-finger gestures allow you to scroll through your projects, similar to laptop touchpads. This combination of pen and touch support creates a highly intuitive and efficient workflow for various creative tasks.

Recommendation for All Creatives

I totally recommend the Wacom Intuos Pro, especially for individuals engaged in editing, music production, graphic design, or any computer-based work. The tablet’s touch and gesture features significantly enhance the editing experience, making it a game-changer.

Although the tablet may require a bit more desk space than a mouse, the benefits it offers easily outweigh this minor inconvenience. Plus, your colleagues and viewers will appreciate the absence of those annoying mouse clicks in your video recordings!

Final words

In a world where technology constantly evolves, the Wacom Intuos Pro stands out as a valuable tool for professionals and creatives looking to improve their workflow and overall well-being. Consider making the switch and experience the difference for yourself!
