DigiPro Graphics Tablet for the Budget Conscious

DigiPro WP5540 Graphics Tablet

After all these years of using a mouse for graphics and photo retouching, it must feel natural now; yeah, as natural as holding a brick in your hand and drawing with it.

What’s holding you back from using a pen tablet, the price of Wacom’s Intuos? Well, fret no more. There is actually an inexpensive alternative. It’s been around for years and there are users who swear by it.

UC-Logic of Taiwan makes the DigiPro graphics tablet which works just as competently at a very affordable price. It’s the pressure-sensitive pen tablet for budget-conscious users.

Their WP5540 5.5×4-inch model, pictured above, retails for just $49 (and if you search hard enough, you’ll even find these at two for $60). The 8×6 WP8060 sells for $79. Compare that with the 8×6 Wacom Intuos3 which goes for $350.

Photographers, designers, artists, illustrators, digital camera owners and just about every body who’s serious about image editing should get into the experience of using a pressure-sensitive tablet. It makes a whole lot of difference than just using a mouse.
