If you like the ideas of using a pen display to produce hand-drawn illustrations, but have been put off by the price of some models, industry-leader Wacom may have the answer.

The Wacom One Creative Pen Display’s pressure-sensitive pen incorporates EMR (Electro Magnetic Resonance) technology, meaning it doesn't require a battery or any recharging. The 1920 x 1080 Full HD color display offers 4096 levels of pressure sensitivity, 72 per-cent coverage of the NTSC color space and is finished with an anti-glare film. There are also foldable legs built into the chassis, helping you to set a more comfortable working position.
Wacom One Creative Pen Display is compatible with Windows and Mac, along with Android devices, enabling you to use your phone as the host device instead of a computer. It can be used with several third-party pens from manufacturers such as Lamy, Samsung and Staedtler.
Bundled with each Wacom One Creative Pen Display tablet is a six-month free trail of Clip Studio Paint Pro from Celsys; a powerful, easy-to-use drawing application for comic and manga creation. You also get Wacom’s own Bamboo Paper app for note-taking and sketching. The Wacom One also opens up all the pen-enabled features in Windows 10 and Mac OSX.
Wacom One is available now in the US from B&H, priced at $399.95 and can be purchased from Wex Photo Video in the UK for £359.
