IT’S A MARRIAGE of technology and art — a mobile device suited for the traveling visual creative, from photographers, architects, and illustrators, to graphic designers and even movie editors.
Wacom’s new Cintiq Companion and Cintiq Companion Hybrid allow you to sketch and edit your images wherever you are — letting you break away from the tether of a computer — and share and collaborate using their wifi and Bluetooth functionalities. The dual-facing HD cameras and Windows 8 (Companion) or Android (Hybrid) operating systems ensure that this is the only tablet you’ll need to carry with you.
Professional photographer, Colby Brown, had this to say about the new Cintiq:
The Companion will completely change the way I edit images while traveling, giving me the full professional support of the Wacom products I use at my office while on the road. They are truly transformative for photographers, graphic designers, illustrators, and the like.
We can’t really control when inspiration comes. When the spark hits — whether it’s on the bus, in a plane, or sitting on the Spanish Steps in Rome — you’d better have something nearby to express yourself.
