The Best Tablets for Animation

What Kind of Tablet Should our Students Buy? This is a question we often get asked at BNU, especially for those animators working remotely on their own hardware. 

Nowadays there are many different kinds of tablets available, and cheaper versions than the traditional Wacom brand. 

Wacom Intuos Pro (Medium)
However, the tablet we recommend is the Wacom Intuos Pro (Medium). These retail for around £370, but you can buy used ones on eBay for around £100. And, unlike a lot of tech, Wacom tablets have a long life; buying a used tablet from a trusted seller can be a good economical choice. 

Wacom -v- Mouse
The Wacom Intuos Pro Medium is a good size for animation. It works well, much better than using a mouse, which can cause long-term damage to wrists and arms if over-used. To see why a tablet is better than a mouse, see this blog post on how to set up your workstation
