Make your tablet wireless
No cable. No clutter. Go wireless for ultimate creative freedom. The wireless kit is an additional accessory for Bamboo Pen and Touch and Bamboo Fun Pen and Touch (small and medium).
Bamboo tablets are a great help for navigating your computer--whether you're moving your cursor across the screen, opening and closing files and folders, or working in common software applications. Bamboo tablets combine pen and multi-touch in one tablet, allowing you to alternate between the pen and gestures on the tablet surface.
Multi-touch makes it possible to use simple finger taps and hand gestures to navigate around your desktop and perform common tasks. Wacom introduces nine useful gestures that you can use with your tablet.
To navigate with the pen, just hover with the pen tip over the tablet surface. Each point on the tablet maps to a corresponding place on screen, making it easy to move your cursor. Tap the pen to select, and tap twice to open files. With a pen, you can perform any motion or command that you make with a mouse, and many more. Most tablet users will tell you that once you’ve got used to the pen, you'll never want to be without one.
Alternating between input devices can help reduce wrist strain caused by repetitive strain or RSI. A tablet provides an ergonomic alternative to traditional input devices, allowing you to work with your computer with minimal effort and from a relaxed position. A tablet assumes all the normal functions of a traditional computer mouse including basic navigation and selection, but provides vital ergonomic advantages as well.
Bamboo helps you share your ideas, communicate more clearly and speed up your productivity. Highlight key messages, mark up documents, and visually express your thoughts and ideas. Bamboo is a great companion for getting work done because it allows you to collaborate in a more efficient way.
Here are some great ways that Bamboo can help you at work:
- Improve the way you work with your computer using gestures and pen input.
- Mark up documents in common Office 2007 applications like Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Outlook using the review and inking tools.
- Mark up PDFs with your thoughts and comments using the pen tool.
- Keep a daily log or diary using Windows Journal, which allows you to digitally handwrite notes and make sketches.
- Spice up your presentations by controlling your cursor, making notes on your slides and highlighting your messages while you present.
Whether you’re using multi-touch gestures to navigate and operate your computer, or utilising the pen for more detailed work, Bamboo provides a compelling combination that will change the way you work.
All Bamboo models that include a pen make collaboration natural and easy, but you should check your computer specifications to see whether your operating system and software support these features. It works best with Office 2007 and 2010 and Microsoft Windows Vista or Windows 7, which includes a number of pen-friendly features.
Inking allows you to write digitally in your own handwriting, making it possible to take notes on your computer, sign your name, write an email to a friend, highlight important parts of a document, or even sketch out a diagram.
It’s like writing on paper, but in a way that can be saved, edited, and shared as a digital file. Imagine having the potential to change the way you communicate by sending personal messages and fun drawings, annotating driving directions, or just brightening up someone’s day with a little humour.
Even if you’ve never used a digital pen before, it’s easy to understand why the pen is intuitive to use – it’s just like writing with traditional pens, pencils, and markers. Additionally, you can navigate your computer with the Bamboo pen.

It was very easy to install and works fine with Windows 8 and my Photoshop Elements 10 software. Once installed, it's just a matter of connecting it through the USB and disconnect it when not in use. It can be used in conjunction with your regular mouse - I tend to use the mouse for navigation and the pen for editing, without having to put the pen down when handling the mouse.
One thing somebody mentioned in an earlier review is that you can put a type of screen protector on the tablet surface to protect it and prolong the life of the tip of the pen. I've tried this and it works surprisingly well. I've used a sheet of self-adhesive book cover protector (do test it first to make sure it doesn't leave any residue when removed). This makes the surface smoother (non-scratchy) and the pen easier to glide without affecting sensitivity.
Another thing to keep in mind is that the default setting of pressure sensitivity in Photoshop is set so that the pen pressure on the tablet controls the size of the brushes. This means you have to press quite hard with the pen to get the chosen size brush. This may be good for freehand artists for sketching, but it's really annoying if you're trying to do some precise photo editing and you need a certain size brush. All you have to do to solve this problem is untick the size check box in the brush tablet options. (In Photoshop Elements 10 this is located within the brush option bar at the top - a little white downward pointing arrow, the one before last option in the option bar (quite easy to miss): "Check the settings the pen pressure on the tablet should control").
Overall, I'm very satisfied with the results I can produce with this tablet. I've deducted one star for the clumsy touch function, but if I had bought the cheaper pen only version of this product, I would have given it 5 stars.
I also bought the wireless add-on which is a nice little upgrade, as the standard cable does get in the way a lot and is incredibly short. Also worth mentioning is there's no pen holder supplied. You can feed it through the garishly coloured 'Wacom' cloth tag on the side of the tablet, but the traditinal ink pot style pen holder would have been far better. Speaking of garish colours, quite why Wacom decided to make the underside of this luminous green is beyond me. It's beyond hideous.
Overall then this is a flawed product but still represents a decent and very cheap entry into the world of tablets for those without the budget for Wacom's more capable professional offerings.
Some people may say its to small but for me a 1st time user of a Graphics Tablet i would have to say it is perfect, any bigger would of been too big for me.
I love the style of the Tablet, its got a lovely slim design and fits perfectly on my desk.
The pen feels nice and comftable when i hold it but it has a button on the side which i keep clicking by accident but i'm sure i'll stop doing that eventually.
The Touch control is great and smooth, no need to use my laptop touch pad now.
The USB lead has a long lead but looks a little bit flimsy at the end where you plug it into the Tablet, good job i'm going wireless.
The feel of the pen when it touches the tablet is nice, it feels like your drawing on real paper, the pen also has an eraser on the end which is great.
Installing the drivers was qiuck and simple.
You also have a little slot on the side to store your Pen when not using it which i think is pretty neat.
It works like a treat with Photoshop, i got the hang of using it straight away and drew my first picture which turnt out really well.
I would overall recommend this tablet, it is fantastic!
The cost of this Bamboo was about a fiver less than the old Graphire was, about 7 or 8 years ago, and is bigger and has more capability. It just shows how much costs have come down.
It worked straight out of the box and has a load of apps with it. The apps are OK for what they are but if you are drawing, painting or photo manipulation you would be much better off using a dedicated program (Illustrator/Inkscape, Photoshop/Gimp etc). I tend to use the stylus most of the time but the touch tracking was good and responsive.
Anyone new to a stylus will find it takes about an hour or two of fooling around with it to become comfortable and then there's no looking back - you will find mouses to be clumsy and irritating and those horrible little track pads on laptops are beyond toleration.
