I'm asking my hubby for a pen tablet for Christmas (since I got my new camera lense for my birthday!), but I wanted to know if anyone has a recommendation. I hear Wacom's are very good, but they are pretty prices. Are there less expensive alternatives?

There are others that are less expensive but it's a case of you get what you pay for.

I know most graphic artists prefer Wacom's. Liz

Wacom all the way. Check FleaBay.... Unless you are doing commercial photos, get one of the small tablets.

You need to make sure you get one big enough to be comfortable on...too small and it's worthless even if you don't do commercial work. Liz
