Wacom has released an enormous version of Cintiq 22 tablet with features like after 21.5-inch screen with a 1920x 1080 resolution, an NTSC color of 72%, and an anti-glass surface with a paper-like feel to draw on after launching the $649 Cintiq 16 earlier this year.
Compared to prior pen displays from Wacom, the Cintiq 16 has been the most inexpensive and accessible tool the company has ever had, but consumers will have to pay more for the display room to draw lengthy strokes and sweeping styles.
The Cintiq 22 is nothing but an extended version of the Cintiq 16 with the similar kind of specs, but costing at $1,199 almost twice as much.
The Cintiq 22 comes with an adjustable stand, unlike the 16, which has just foldable legs. It also comes with Wacom’s latest stylus, the Pro Pen 2, which has 8,192 levels of pressure sensitivity and tilt support and never needs charging. It does not come with other accessories, however, such as the remote $100ExpressKey or Bluetooth keyboard.
The Cintiq Proline provides some higher-end characteristics that the standard Cintiq line has no more precise colors, such as 4 K resolution, and better optical bonding, which decreases parallax, or the distance between the pen and the screen. However, the Cintiq Pro line is intended for animation studios and business use, so for young artists and creative professionals, the Cintiq 22 is definitely a solid choice.
