    Anyone have tried the Bamboo2

    Seems the Bamboo2 by Wacom is coming out,don't know if it already is in some parts of the world?
    Did anyone try it out and how are the touch features?
    Seems you can now use your fingers on the pad,might be great to use with AR3

    Thank you IrishRose for the review.
    I have a Graphire4 and I thinking about a replacement and thought the touch feature would be nice.
    Seems you don't want to change to the Euro just yet as it would cost you here about E90,-

    I bought a Bamboo Fun (touch and pen).
    The hardware is good for the price (not good as my intuos 3, but I wanted something to push into the notebook bag without hassle).
    The touch feature is good, but I tried it with Photoshop CS4, Sketchbook Pro 2010 and ArtRage 2.5 and not all the gestures are supported.
    I expected to being able to draw with the pen and to rotate/zoom/pan with the hand, but it doesn't work as expected. Maybe newer drivers will do the magic, maybe I missed something in the configuration I don't know.

    Anyway, the hw is good.

    Rose has made a very good review. I have the bamboo touch and pen (black) And I now love it. I was brought up computer-wise with a trackball and was suffering carpal tunnel. This really helps. The gestures took a bit of getting used to and I recommend getting the latest driver from the website as opposed to using the one in the box. I also have a cintiq and modbook... which of course are better but I'm trilled with the sensitivity of the new bamboo. It works great with my iMac.... And I love the surface of it. Go for it.

    Thank you all,

    Was just curious if it works,
    The Dutch review stated the handling was getting used to.
    But then again Wacom has always had great hardware to use
    and that also relates to the pricing.
    If I'm getting one,it would be the mediumFun touch/pen but for now my finances won't allow me to buy one as it is a nice sum of E199,-

    For great deals check out educational pricing. Sometimes they even lift the requirement of having a student in your home.

    That deal does not require a student. Probably no overseas shipping though.

    Thanks for the link but for now there are some other things that need to be done first.
    AR3 is one them and what comes next will come next.
