◆ Wacom Cintiq Pro 32 Photo Review <br> That's why I'll start with Wacom Cintiq Pro 32. The box containing Wacom Cintiq Pro 32 is pretty huge, and if it's a child it's about that it's hidden inside.


Inside the box are the included cables, Wacom Pro Pen 2, Express Key Remote etc, and the contents are the same as Wacom Cintiq Pro 24.


This is the body of Wacom Cintiq Pro 32. I felt that Wacom Cintiq Pro 24 was big enough, but Wacom Cintiq Pro 32 is even huge.


It is such feeling that people actually have.


I put it on the table and the depth is quite limited. It is a level that can not be fitted on a compact desk for one person.


Side top


Power button on the left


There is nothing at the bottom of the side.


The left side


Two USB 3.0 ports and an earphone terminal


right side


SD card slot and two USB 3.0 ports


Although the bottom looks like nothing at first glance ... ...


It is possible to stand.


It will be like this if you stand two.


Also, put your fingers in the hole at the top of the bottom and pull it ... ...


The parts will come off like this.


If you catch your fingers here you can also remove the back cover.


There are multiple terminals in the cover.


From the left USB type-C port, power port corresponding to display port alternate mode ......


USB 3.0 port, UHD compatible Mini DisplayPort / DisplayPort, UHD compatible HDMI 2.0 port. To the right end terminal, the dongle of the remote control "ExpressKey Remote" for Wacom Cintiq Pro is inserted from the beginning.


◆ Install Wacom Cintiq Pro Engine on Wacom Cintiq Pro 32 <br> First check Wacom Cintiq Pro Engine. The outer box looks like this.


It is the Wacom Cintiq Pro Engine body that is covered with a black package.


The box above it contains a power adapter and a power cable.


This is the body of Wacom Cintiq Pro Engine. The appearance is very simple.


Power button on top of the side


Connection terminals etc. are gathered at the bottom of the side.


Mini DisplayPort (DP 1.2, 4 K / 60 Hz), Mini HDMI (HDMI 2.0, 4 K / 60 Hz), USB Type-C (Display Port Alternate Mode, 4 K / 60 Hz)


Power port for Wacom Cintiq Pro, Power port for Wacom Cintiq Pro Engine, USB Type-C (for data transfer, USB charging), Gigabit LAN port


In the lower row there is a terminal for connecting with Wacom Cintiq Pro. Power supply terminal and display port from the left USB Type-C terminal for connecting in alternate mode. That is, when Wacom Cintiq Pro Engine is connected to Wacom Cintiq Pro, it will be connected in display port alternate mode and the output to the display will automatically be "4 K (3840 x 2160) / 60 Hz". You can connect Wacom Cintiq Pro 32 to your PC, but wiring is overwhelmingly easy with Wacom Cintiq Pro Engine.


That's why I install Wacom Cintiq Pro Engine on Wacom Cintiq Pro 32. First, prepare the screws and drivers that are in the box.


Remove the back cover of Wacom Cintiq Pro 32 ......


Remove the instruments for bundling the cords inside.


In this way you should omit both of them OK.


Slide the Wacom Cintiq Pro Engine on the back of the Wacom Cintiq Pro 32 and remove it.


Because there is a hole in the red arrow part ......


Fix the Wacom Cintiq Pro Engine and Wacom Cintiq Pro 32 with the two screws provided with the Wacom Cintiq Pro Engine. Since Wacom Cintiq Pro Engine comes with only these two screws, there is no need to worry "which screws should I use?"


Next, prepare the power adapter for Wacom Cintiq Pro 32 (left) and Wacom Cintiq Pro Engine (right).


If you insert two into Wacom Cintiq Pro Engine ......


This will allow you to use Wacom Cintiq Pro 32 as a PC.


First of all, power of Wacom Cintiq Pro Engine is popped.


Then turn on the power of Wacom Cintiq Pro 32 ......


Together with this, it quickly changes to PC with attached special stylus pen.


Since Wacom Cintiq Pro Engine is connected to Wacom Cintiq Pro 32 as it is, the resolution is 440 picture quality of 3840 × 2160.


◆ Install Wacom Cintiq Pro 32 on Wacom Flex Arm <br> Next , install Wacom Flex Arm for dedicated monitor arm. The box containing Wacom Flex Arm is this.


In the box with instructions ......


There are screws and drivers used for assembly.


In addition, the body parts were stored separately under it.


There are only 4 parts in all.


When installing the Wacom Flex Arm, make space between the desk and the wall before assembling.


The first part to use is this part.


On the back of the Wacom Cintiq Pro 32 are six screw holes (red arrow portion).


I put the parts in the following way and stop the six positions with screws, but before that we will wire the cables etc.


Pass the cable connecting the Wacom Cintiq Pro Engine from the hole in the center of the part. When connecting the power cable to the left hole, Wacom Cintiq Pro Engine wired internet connection, you can pass the LAN cable through the hole on the right.


Connecting various cables to Wacom Cintiq Pro Engine is like this.


At this time, there is a hole in the red arrow on the back side of the part to be attached to Wacom Cintiq Pro 32 ......


It is possible to fix the monitor so that it does not rotate left and right when inserting the included 8 mm screw.


However, according to the notes from Wacom's staff, if you want to rotate the Wacom Cintiq Pro 32 installed vertically or sideways, say "Do not screw." For that reason, I did not attach screws this time.


Next we prepare 6 mm 10 mm screws ... ...


Attached driver.


Use 6 screws to attach the parts to Wacom Cintiq Pro 32.


Next parts are prepared as follows. Bite this part on the desk and secure the Wacom Flex Arm to the desk.


The thickness of the desk to fix the parts is different, but the screw of the red arrow part ......


It is designed to be attached to various thickness desks by removing with the following parts.


When removing the screws, since three pairs of holes aligned by two on each side appear under the parts ......


If the desk is thin, close it with the hole at the top and narrow the gap.


On the contrary, if the desk is thick, use the hole at the bottom to increase the gap OK.


The parts are installed in the tabletop part of the desk as follows.


Turn the screw on the back to secure it securely.


There are holes in the parts fixed to the desk, and there may be small protrusions appearing in the red arrow part when peeking through this hole.


In such a case using the following parts ......


Turn the knuckle so that the protrusion comes out of the part, not inside the part.


Next, prepare the following arm parts. The first one to use is the thin arm on the bottom.


Since protrusions are coming out from one side ... ...


Insert this in the base part.


After that, if you return the protrusion that went outside to inside again ......


The first arm is fixed to the base.


Because there are holes in the attached arm ... ...


I attached another arm here.


Two arms moved, Kuenekune movement, the monitor arm became like.



After that, a small protrusion also protrudes from the connecting part between the first arm and the second arm, so return it to the inside.


Finally attach Wacom Cintiq Pro 32 to the base arm part. At that time, first let the first arm lean about 45 degrees from the edge of the desk ... ...


Lift the Wacom Cintiq Pro 32 with the parts on the back. Please be sure to install Wacom Cintiq Pro 32 with two or more people.


With this feeling I felt like putting the display of Wacom Cintiq Pro 32 on the ceiling and putting it on the arm.


Make sure that the Wacom Cintiq Pro 32 and the arm are securely connected ... ...


Secure the red arrow on the back of the Wacom Cintiq Pro 32 with the screws.


We use two 14 mm screws and a white screw.


After fixing the screw ... ....


Wacom Cintiq Fixed the cable extending from Pro Engine with a band attached to the arm.


This completes the task of attaching Wacom Cintiq Pro 32 to the Wacom Flex Arm.


The method of attaching Wacom Cintiq Pro 32 to Wacom Flex Arm is also explained in the official movie of Wacom, so it is easy to understand when working while watching this.

◆ Wacom Flex Arm's range of motion looks like this
Since Wacom Flex Arm has six movable ranges, it is possible to bring Wacom Cintiq Pro 32 to the user's ideal position.

Looking at the Wacom Flex Arm from directly above, the following three areas are the range of movement. The range of movement at the connecting part between the base part and the first arm is 180 degrees, the range of motion at the connecting part of the first arm and the second arm is 360 degrees, and the connection between the second arm and Wacom Cintiq Pro 32 The movable range in the part can rotate 180 degrees.


The connection between Wacom Cintiq Pro 32 and Wacom Flex Arm can be rotated about 75 degrees in the vertical direction. From the state that it faces almost directly ... ....


It is possible to operate up to the state almost perpendicular to the ground.


Slightly above the joint between the first arm and the second arm there is also a range of motion that allows you to move the Wacom Cintiq Pro 32 vertically by 90 degrees.


This is the way down to the bottom. Vertical movement of 292 mm in height is possible.


Since you did not attach the supplied 8 mm screw, you can rotate the display of Wacom Cintiq Pro 32 in the direction of the arrow.


Because there are six movable areas like this, Wacom Flex Arm can be moved freely beyond imagination. You can bring Wacom Cintiq Pro 32 to various positions.


In addition, some arm may interfere with Wacom Cintiq Pro Engine or Wacom Cintiq Pro 32, so it is necessary to prevent damage when rotating.


Also, according to the instructions, moving to the back side of the desk on which the arm is installed may cause instability, possibly causing damage to the equipment and personal injury. So you need to be careful not to let the arm go to the back side of the desk.


◆ I actually used it by an illustrator
GIGAZINE's first comic strip " princess and gamers was in charge of the cartoon and character design of", Hajikamiio asked by using the most powerful painting tool called Wacom Cintiq Pro 24 × Wacom Cintiq Pro Engine × Wacom Ergo Stand in san, the user eyes I decided to have a frank opinion to say Vishi Bashi. Since the tool I usually use for painting is " VAIO Z Canvas " × " Wacom MobileStudio Pro 16 " × "CLIP STUDIO PAINT EX", Wacom Cintiq Pro Engine has CLIP I installed STUDIO PAINT EX and used it.

The completeness of the Wacom Cintiq Pro 32 itself is very high, like the previous Wacom Cintiq Pro 24 , "There is almost no dissatisfaction". Since the parallax is small, 4K high resolution, even if the screen is enlarged, the roughness of the pixel is hardly noticed. Still, because it is a big screen, I felt the dynamism and dynamism that I could not feel in the 24-inch Wacom Cintiq Pro 24.


Anyway, because the size is large, it is also possible to draw illustrations directly as actual size of actual manga manuscript or picture campus size or more. Therefore, "When a person who has drawn an illustration for a long time hand-drawn moves to digital, a huge liquid crystal pen tablet such as Wacom Cintiq Pro 32 that can draw with familiar size may be comfortable".


Even when the screen is enlarged, since the monitor is huge, the entire illustration continues to be visible, "It is easy to balance the picture as a picture," Mr. Nao. Also, even if I looked at the state actually being used from the side, even if the screen was expanded to a considerable size, thanks to 4K correspondence, roughness was hardly felt. However, because the screen is large, the rough illustration drawn by myself is conspicuous, and the roughness of a certain place becomes matter of concern, and when we rework, another place becomes matter of concern this time ... and so on " I will continue drawing it endlessly, "Mr. Naoko said.


Since the screen is large, you do not have to stuff the various tools on the edge of the screen, and you can place it in a location that is easy for you to use as below. However, as you can see, the dead space that I have not used is noticeable. "People who use a lot of tools may be able to draw figures that make use of large screens," said Mr. Pepper.


I usually seem to be drawing monitors and drawing illustrations with the following posture ......


It is used for standing ......


It is also possible to draw illustrations so as to cover the monitor as follows. In Wacom Ergo Stand I reviewed last time, it was very difficult to finely adjust the height and monitor angle, but this time Wacom Flex Arm can really change the position of the arm freely and at any time Wacom Cintiq It was possible to bring Pro 32.


Furthermore, since it is a monitor arm, it inevitably shakes slightly during use, but it seems to be "tolerable if this is enough." If you want to reduce the shaking even a little, it is difficult to shake a part of the monitor to touch the desk. In addition, if you lower the arm to the lowest height of the monitor, It means that the monitor will not be able to shake even under pressure.


In order to further suppress the shake, tighten the screws of each movable part OK. You can also loosen the screws to make the movement smooth.


However, in the instructions, Wacom Cintiq Pro attached to Wacom Flex Arm says "Do not apply more than 2 kg load", so if you are drawing to a liquid crystal pen tablet, Wacom Flex Arm seems unsuitable.


Also, when I look at the state of drawing on the side, the effect of the pen (watercolor style or pencil style) has been well conveyed since the display is big. For example, it is a rugged line with a pencil-like boggy like ...


The color overlapping condition is often felt like a watercolor painting. Many surprises were obtained while watching the state of painting of Mr. Naoko and Mr. Naoko, "until the illustration is completed like this ... whether it is done like this, but thanks to the large screen of Wacom Cintiq Pro 32 The colorfulness of the pen touch and the delicacy of color painting are the impressions that have been conveyed more than ever.


In addition, you can check the situation when you have painted by Wacom Cintiq Pro 32 on Mr. Saipa with the following movie.
