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.
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.
Sleek, Stylish, and Easy to Use
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.
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.
