Make it on Wacom Cintiq

Wacom Cintiq is a new class of creative pen display with an optimized feature set for creative starters. Vibrant color, HD clarity and ergonomic design together with the super-responsive Pro Pen 2, offer a natural experience and help take your creative ideas and illustrations to the next level.

Live. Dare. Create.

Create in harmony

Wacom Pro Pen 2 and Wacom Cintiq displays (available in 15.6” or 21.5”) work together to make your creative session productive and comfortable. The screen has an anti-glare film, preventing any distracting reflections. The full HD display provides great clarity, so you can see every detail on screen. The reduced parallax also gives you full control, so your cursor is where you expect to be. All this combines to make drawing on Wacom Cintiq feel as natural as drawing on paper.

A pen that takes you beyond

Unlimited creativity

With EMR (Electro Magnetic Resonance) technology Wacom Pro Pen 2 will keep going as long as you do. It draws power from your Wacom Cintiq – so it requires no batteries or recharging. Plus, the pen has been precisely designed so that the balance of weight, rubber grip and position of the buttons make it comfortable to use.

Made to move with you

Wacom Pro Pen 2 reacts to the tilt of your hand and immediately responds as you move, capturing every stroke of your pen. With reduced parallax, your cursor appears exactly where you want it.

This level of accuracy combined with the anti-glare screen means that drawing, sketching and painting feels seamless.

The right kind of pressure

With 8,192 levels of pressure sensitivity and a low activation force, Wacom Pro Pen 2 recognizes light pen strokes. Giving you the control you need, whatever the project.

Built for creativity

Designed to take you further

Built with Wacom quality and know-how, Wacom Pro Pen 2 and Wacom Cintiq’s slim line display are built not just for beauty, but were designed to last. Made with durable, scratch resistant materials, and high quality components, Wacom Cintiq is a creative tool you can rely on for your first project and all of those to come.

Work your way

Wacom Cintiq 16 features integrated foldable legs so you can go from almost flat to a 19° incline in seconds. An optional stand gives you even more flexible and ergonomic working positions.

Or choose Wacom Cintiq 22 which comes with a stand that easily adjusts to your preferred working position, so you can work in complete comfort.

Little touches make a big difference

The cable connects to the top of the screen and avoids unwanted desk clutter. The 3-in-1 cable* that connects to your Wacom Cintiq 16 combines power, video and data in one.

The detachable pen holder can be easily moved to either side of the display to suit your preference. Spare nibs are also stored neatly inside the pen holder, so whatever the project, the right tool will always be close to hand.

*Cintiq 22 comes with HDMI, USB & power cables.

Shan Jiang's review


I started to use Wacom tablets from 2003. My first Wacom was an Intuos 2. I still keep it as a souvenir. I use a Wacom in every project. Even if it’s a hand-drawn work piece I will start the rough sketch by using a Wacom. If it's a digital work, I use a Wacom throughout the whole process.
