Product Description

Amazon.com

The Bamboo Craft includes over $200 in value with in-box inclusions.
Combining intuitive design and versatility, Bamboo Craft is a powerful creative workstation that lets PC and Mac users create digital art with an organic, hands-on feel. Using an innovative tablet and Wacom's "Multi-Touch" system, users can manipulate images and navigate the Web using simple gestures and finger taps. When combined with Wacom's pen-input technology, Multi-Touch allows you to write, doodle, and embellish with ease.



Included pen features 1,024 levels of pressure sensitivity for precise drawings.


Large, textured work surface and customizable keys give you artistic control.


Multi-Touch lets you scroll, zoom, and rotate your screen with simple hand gestures.
Sleek, Stylish, and Easy to Use
Measuring 9.8 by 6.9 inches, the Bamboo Craft is compact enough to store comfortably in a laptop case. It features a large and responsive active area, providing enough workspace for even your most ambitious projects. For added convenience, four ExpressKeys provide quick access to user-defined shortcuts.

The tablet also comes with a battery-free pen with an easy-to-grip design, so you can have maximum control over your drawing. The work surface is textured, providing a pen-on-paper feel. It's also reversible, so you can use it whether you're right- or left-handed.

The Bamboo Craft is simple to set up. Simply plug the tablet into your computer via a USB port, install the provided drivers, and you're ready to go. You'll be doodling, writing, and painting in minutes.

Enhance Creativity with Multi-Touch Technology
With the Bamboo Craft, Wacom has implemented a new technology called Multi-Touch. Typically, tablets require you to use the stylus for navigation, but Multi-Touch provides a comfortable, hands-on alternative. It allows you to quickly navigate through your computer with a single finger. You can also scroll, zoom, and rotate your screen with simple hand gestures. It's intuitively-designed and easy to use -- even if you're new to the touch experience.

For precision work, you can use the included pen. When you use the pen, the screen will automatically recalibrate for more precise use. In your hands, the pen quickly becomes an all-purpose art tool. It features 1,024 levels of pressure sensitivity, allowing you to perform tasks ranging from fine handwriting to wide-brush painting. You can add hand-drawn embellishments to your favorite digital photos, or provide a personal touch to your scrapbooking pages.

First-Class Visual Editing Software
The tablet also comes with a full suite of visual editing software, including Adobe Photoshop Elements 8 (Win/Mac), Corel Painter Essentials 4.0 (Win/Mac), and Nik Color Efex Pro 3.0 WE3--valued separately at several hundred dollars. Also included is a DVD with 26 scrapbooking lessons from Jane Conner-Ziser, an expert in digital imaging and much more.

Bamboo Craft is compatible with Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP (Service Pack 2) and Mac OS X (10.4.8 or higher). It also requires a powered USB drive, a colore monitor, and a CD/DVD drive.

What's in the Box
Bamboo Craft tablet, Bamboo Craft pen, Quick Start guide, installation CD (includes driver software, interactive tutorial, and user's manual), full versions of Adobe Photoshop Elements 8 for Win/Mac and Corel Painter 4 for Win/Mac, a DVD with 26 lessons on using the included software to build scrapbook pages, a library of craft embellishments, a free online tablet class, a free 1 year subscription to Scrapbooking and Beyond magazine, a free 1 year retail store from Café Press and a free 8x8 photo album from Shutterfly.  Over $200 in value all included in the box.


Product Description

Bamboo Craft lets you take a hybrid approach to your scrapbook and craft projects, combining the best of both worlds: working digitally with your tablet makes every creative idea possible and printing your work allows you to finish your craft with a beautiful, traditional result.

Verified Purchase
First of all, I'm not a native English speaker, sorry for you reading my broken Engrish. :)

Bamboo is Wacom's lineup for light-users.
This is the second generation of this line, which features multi-touch.

# What's in the Box

A Tablet
A Pen
Three nip replacement
A nip extractor

No more mouse offered. (No one uses Wacom's mouse anyway...)

# Pen

It features Wacom's typical technologies:
No battery needed, No cable, and an eraser-programed tail.
New Bamboo pen has just OK grip. Just OK.

However, if you own an Intuos, it might be little rough for you.
Unlike beautifully curved and rubber gripped Intuos pen, it is simply a plain circular cylinder.
It is about the size of three AAA batteries lined up.

From 2nd generation, Bamboo line features 1024 levels of pressure sensitivity.
The higher level allows you to draw more pressure-sensed line.
This is significant, because Intuos3, one of the professional ones, features 1024-level as well.
(You can draw thicker line when you put more pressure, and vice versa.)
In fact, this is doubled level from 1st generation. This is simply great for the price!

# Touch

The biggest reason I bought this product, despite the fact I own an Intuos4, is the multi-touch.
I had a doubt that how useful it is gonna be, but a tablet with touch-sensors made me sooo curious
that I had to order one right away.

The stinky feeling was right; it wasn't that useful.
For navigating, using the pen is wayyy faster.
For editing pictures, my keyboard works better.
Also the touch does not offer good precision to work with those Adobe programs.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I have been an avid user of Wacom products for almost a decade now and for digital artwork, I still use my Intuous 3 Graphic Tablet. But now I have a new Wacom tablet known as the Bamboo Craft, part of Wacom's latest line of budget-priced Bamboo tablets (from lowest to highest in price: (all black) Bamboo Pen, Bamboo Touch and Bamboo Pen & Touch. And over the $100 range are the Bamboo Craft and Bamboo Fun in metallic silver).

The Bamboo Craft are for those who want a tablet for their Mac or PC and all that is required is that you have a USB port and the room/table space to place your tablet.

The Bamboo Craft is about 9.8 x 6.9 (with the active area at 5.8 x 3.6). For those that need something larger, the Bamboo Fun is about 13.3 x 8.8 (with an active area about 8.5 x 5.4). Note: This is very important, it's great to have more active area space (I believe the bigger the better) but having owned several in the past, what I've learned is that it also comes down to your desk working area and sometimes having something too big may not be practical. Also, purchase a tablet that works with your budget.

I. INSTALLATION & TRAINING

Install of the software on both the PC and Mac are quite easy. After install, you can partake in a few training lessons on how to use your fingers (aka Multi-touch) and use the tablet like a mouse. You can click on the pad, like you would click on a mouse to achieve point, click and move. You can also use your finger to navigate and use the buttons to click. Two fingers to zoom or right click. Motioning your hands clockwise or counter clockwise to spin and rotate an image.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I was a little skeptical about this tablet, since I'm not really fond of gimmicks or excessive gadgetry, but thought I would give it a try, as my old Wacom Intuos is getting a little long in the tooth.

But I love this tablet! It's the perfect size to go with a notebook computer, and the touch pad is so much more comfortable than that little one on most laptops. I was already very familiar with the pen from my old Intuos, and it works just the same, exactly like a normal pen would. You can either use a little button on the pen to double-click, or just touch the pen to the surface. It's a wonderful invention that I love.

As for the multi-touch part of the tablet, I actually like that part as well. I watched the tutorials to get the hang of it, but it was pretty easy. The only gesture that was not intuitive for me was dragging a file or folder. I had to look that one up, and at first I couldn't get it, but after using the tablet for an hour I felt like a pro. At first I thought the tablet wasn't sensitive enough and was pressing too hard, but after a while I got the hang of how to touch it. If anything, now I would say it's a little too sensitive and I have to be careful not to touch the screen excessively or rest my fingers on the screen.

The thing I love the most about the multi-touch, and what I use it most for, is browsing on the web. The scroll gesture is very intuitive and so easy, and the gesture to move to a previous web page is genius. It really is cool and easy to use. It feels like you're flipping through actual paper pages.

This product comes with bundled software like Painter Essentials and Photoshop Elements, which are perfect complements to the tablet and pen. I already had similar products on my computer so didn't download these.
