Princess Luna: Why would I waste my money on that crap. You have to lug a tablet and a mac, to use the freaked thing. the surface pro 2 gives me the BEST of both worlds and I love every second on this. The surface pro 2 has PhotoShop CS6 and illustrator CS6 And many other software installed that I love. and anything else I want on it. The pen may feel and look like crap. I LOVE IT. Wacom technology in it too.
My spouse can be driving and I can digital scrapbook at the same time, when he got to go the medical appointments, its great for sketching and art too.

The iPad is overpriced junk, with very limited features. If you want a real tablet with no limit, go with surface pro, if you want a kid toy sick with the I crap.

Ps I own a wacom 13hd tablet. Like to put it to use. But my surface pro gave me a sky with no limit.

It's for people who already have iPads to extend the gear they already have, not those looking for $800 alternatives.

Thuravi Kumaaran: If we count integrity in votes, the value may vanish.

please go through the fallowing link and Rack Zoom Focus issues with mirror less cameras.

If I go for a landscape camera for the time being, Nikon 810 is my choice.

From my limited understanding, I can say that for the time being, Canon 7DM2 is the best APSC- sensor wildlife, sports camera and the world's best sports camera in most artificial light.

Thank you.

Yes, thank you too. Not many can state the obvious that a $2300 camera, and an $1800 camera, are likely to be better in some ways than a $550 camera.

That is a truth I could not have seen without your help.

Papi61: I'm sure pretty soon Apple will release a laptop with a touch screen, and maybe a pen like the Surface's. Most likely they will just copy the Surface. And then all the fanboys who have ridiculed those ideas will totally embrace them. You know, like they used to make fun of smaller tablets, larger phones and phablets. Until Apple copied all of that...and then it became absolutely great.

Meanwhile they have to resort to clunky solutions like these, because a true Apple soldier would never EVER buy anything made by another company, least of all from Microsoft, the devil incarnate... ;)

OK, you win. Enjoy your pyrrhic victory.

Ha ha. I'm not a fanboy either. Your radar is way off. Good luck with that.

Roger Circle: I have used Wacom tablets for graphics/illustration work for decades. I've downloaded the free 7-day trial of Astropad and found the app to be quite useful with Photoshop and Painter. I appreciate the thought that has gone into it. The pinch to zoom and move features are well implemented and intuitive. My keyboard shortcuts for tool selection and brush size management are intact. I can rest my palm on the iPad while using the pressure sensitive stylus for more precise control. I can put the stylus right where I want it, because (unlike my graphics tablet) I can SEE my work beneath the tip of the stylus. I'll use this app in my work and enjoy benefits that heretofore have been priced out of reach for me.

Many, and yes. If you look at the website it's all answered.

"an obstinate or sub-par tool"

That was your experience when you tried it out?

ThatCamFan: I love reading the idiotic comments here "the ipad sucks, i cant wait for the ipad defender army to come here to attack us because they are such a**holes & we are not despite us attacking anyone who owns an iPad.

Yes I own an iPad, the iPad 2, I am NOT going to buy a new tablet every year.
And YES the iPad is inferior to a Wacom tablet that costs thousands of dollars, but to be honest?

When you want to do quick work for example to take away the background or do spot removal or brush a bit?
It is good enough since Lightroom does not rely on "how much pressure are you using"

I use a computer mouse on my editing. If a tablet was affordable with a screen for me, I would use it.

This has its uses & is more limited than a "real" tablet, but it sure as hell beats using my computer mouse so I would gladly use this.

(to bad I don't own an Apple computer just an iPad so I can't use it anyway)

Also for your info: The iPad 2 is the ONLY apple Product I have, Not a fan of they're products.

There are, but not ones with screens.

The fanboys haven't ridiculed them. Who do you talk to? If you want to see the multitude of opinions about Apple gear, perhaps read somewhere like MacRumors that has a large and differing cross-section of users.

As far as clunky, this is far from it - for it's purpose. And as far as not buying other brands, that's just rubbish.

Maybe just stick to what you know? Or learn about it first?

In reply to:

fmian: I wonder how it would play with the users palm resting on the ipad while drawing with the pen. Found it really unintuitive to hover my hand while drawing when using other ipad pen options. I thought this was one of the main reasons people used dedicated drawing tablets.

The app does have palm rejection features.

Not the brand of paint, of course not. But if they are not using Sable brushes ... pfft, amateur.

NO Roger. It's one or the other! Your Wacom will be taken from you if you say this app can do anything for you.

"iPad lacks precise pointing device"

Fair enough, how much more precise does it need to be? Twice as precise? Three times? Ten times?

Can I use a Galaxy Note to draw masks in Capture One on my Mac? No? Then it has nothing to do with what this is for.

EthanP99: Ipad has no pressure sensitivity so whats the point.

Also ipad wont have proximity sensor to move the cursor around without you tapping on the screen. a $50 wacom bamboo would do better than this.

Not saying it's a replacement for either a graphics tablet, or a Cintiq, but no-one has.

"IPAD CANNOT DO THAT."

When the image is being shown directly on the iPad, does it really need to? You can already see where the pen tip is, and where you are placing it.

Perhaps you should actually try something before criticizing and dismissing it?

So far there has been a bunch of posts complaining about how stupid, annoying commenters will wrongly say how this solution is as good as or better than a graphics tablet when it's not - but not one commenter who has actually said that. Fun.

That has nothing to do with what's being discussed. Open-minded, talented people will create quality work with whatever they have.

For example, I have medical issues with my hands, and find a traditional graphics tablet and stylus incredibly painful to use for any length of time. If I choose another solution that works better for me, does that make me stupid?
