In pen case, propene, color pen ring, nine replacement leads, core removal were included.


With propene it feels like this. With pen pressure of batteryless and cordless, the pen pressure level is 2048 levels for both pen tip and eraser. Grip is latex Free silicone rubber, it can hold firmly without slipping.


Since the eraser function is attached behind the pen, you can dismiss scrolls and pictures and lines on the screen like a physical pencil.

The body looks like this. The size is 375 mm × 248 mm × 14 mm, the weight is 1.2 kg.

After waiting for a while ... ....


Since "The system needs to be restarted in order to complete the installation" appears, click "Restart immediately". Installation is complete.


Because Cintiq 13 HD Touch needs to connect without power to both PC and tablet, shut down the restarted PC again and connect PC and tablet using dedicated connection cable.


Connect the USB terminal and the HDMI terminal to the PC and connect the AC adapter connected to the outlet to the AC adapter dedicated cable.


Pressing the power button on the right side of the main unit ... ...


The status lamp lights and the power turns on.


Finally when I turned on the PC, the PC screen was displayed on the tablet.


Because it's no problem, the tablet's comfort and drawing taste is familiar to GIGAZINE's top imageMeraI asked Mr. Mr. to make sure. It is desktop background of PCSuper oversized giant salamander stuffed animalIt also appears on the tablet screen properly.

Please note that in Windows 7, multi-touch function can not be used with Photoshop etc.CLIP STUDIOWhenCorel Painter 2015Although it is said to work, CLIP STUDIO trial version could not use multi touch, so this time we will use trial version of Corel Painter 2015. For Mac OS 10.9 and Windows 8, you can basically use the multi-touch function with Photoshop CC 2014, CLIP STUDIO PAINT Pro, Painter 2015, but only CLIP STUDIO PAINT Pro can not use gesture.


When actually used, it is possible to draw a picture with the right hand while multitouch operation such as enlargement / reduction / rotation of the canvas with the left hand, smoothly with the sense of drawing a picture on paper without line lag etc. I was able to draw, writing pressure sensation and so on were going well. I asked mera for his impression "Because the 13-inch screen is not too big, there was no gap between the display and the pen's ground contact, making it easy to draw the desired line." It was able to enlarge / reduce the screen with multi-touch operation, and was able to draw in free form using both hands than using normal tablet.
