Finally manage to buy a Wacom Inkling… - I've been on the fence regarding this little gadget for months as it seems rather hard to find and the reviews have been rather mixed, and now that I've decided to buy one, I can confirm that it's not really worth it and i should have spent my money on a new digital camera instead.

The problem with the inkling is that, it does what it supposed to do, and that's it. It digitises your pen movement, so you have a digital sketch in addition to a normal pen sketch. In principle, this would be better than a scanner as it is very portable, and you do both at the same time, and you can work in layers straight away. However, it does this only adequately, and not very well. In a sports team, if the digital tablet is the star player and the scanner the normal players, the inkling would be the players on the reserve. It knows how to play, but just isn't good enough to be used regularly as a starting player.

The inkling is rather sensitive to movement, and also the pen tilt and rotation. To get a good sketch, you have to keep the pen in the same position, and draw on a flat, stable surface, and draw reasonably slowly. This means that the inkling would be completely useless as a travel companion, which was the main reason I had wanted one. the precision is another issue, which I found that unless you keep the pen facing the same way, the lines don't quite match up. And you can't go too fast, and straight lines doesn't seem to turn up very straight, so more technical type drawings doesn't seem to be applicable either.

After all the hype, and considering it's a Wacom product, I expected better, really. When you buy a car, if you buy an old, rusty Fiat you'd expect it to get you from A to B (or at least most of the way) and that's it. If you buy a brand new BMW, you'd expect it to get you not just from A to B, but get you there fast and comfortably, and then get you back to A again without breaking down.

Or in another analogy, I was expecting a wood-fired pizza with buffalo mozzarella, porcini, and prosciutto. What I get is a frozen ham and pineapple pizza that's simply defrosted. They're both edible, but I can't say that it lived up anywhere near my expectations.

Hello There, I'd like to say that I really liked your review about the Wacon Inkling and I posted in my blog your illustration that compares both draws (scanned and with Inkling).

I hope you enjoy.
