my new tablet

by
I hate my new tablet, bamboo capture CTH-470

I miss my old one, the pen and touch CTH-460

this one has a different material on the drawing surface; it's much like drawing on chalkboard, the old one smoother like whiteboard, and the sound grates on my ears a bit. along with that, the added friction goes into my sensitive hand which makes it cramp easier, cramps which I don't get when drawing for 10-hour stretches on the old one (and I have drawn for that long before, though I think only once). not the least of which the material makes it harder in comparison to draw curves

another thing is the way I got used to holding the smaller, older model; I held it in my arm and curled my fingers over the side to the quick-buttons like a guitar. I can't do that on this one.

I suppose I could just adjust, but I could also just return this and get another older model, which I'm probably gonna do, even if it'll cost a little more

You might want to try one of these:

Is basically a film of plastic that goes over the tablet and will make it a lot smoother.

I considered a film, but it wouldn't help me all that much

I am just stuck in my own ways

It's funny, I always tried to find more ways to make the tablet surface more rough and textured so that it was similar to paper.

It's so hard to adjust to little things like that.

I've read that myself, that some prefer a rougher feel to it

personally I grew quite fond of the older model being slippery

If i were you i would've gotten the CTH-661, it has much less friction to it, although i thing the 661 is more expensive.

I still have a ctl 460 bamboo pen. I am not looking forward to when it breaks

Im thinking of selling my CTH-460, i changed the USB cable on it and all.
But i got tired of doing doodles.
