Pro Pen 3 and Multi-Touch take customization and performance to a new level
The on-screen pen experience of the Cintiq Pro 27 has been greatly improved with the introduction of the Pro Pen 3. Users now have the ability to change the pen’s weight, barrel size, and center of gravity with interchangeable components that come with the pen. The ability to customize the pen allows artists and designers to precisely meet their work preferences, which ultimately translates into more comfortable and natural digital input sessions. In addition, the Pro Pen 3 has improved tilt detection and still features Wacom’s well-known EMR (Electro-Magnetic Resonance) technology with 8,192 pressure levels and battery-free operation. The pen never needs to be charged, saving valuable time and money. Three programmable side switches are also located on the stylus for creating software shortcuts and modifiers with virtually any pressure-sensitive application on the market.
Multi-touch is also standard and extremely valuable for an artist’s non-dominant hand when working in programs, particularly 3D applications where a model or sculpture needs to be pinched, zoomed and rotated as you work. For those working in a virtual production environment, 10-point selective touch allows users to precisely manipulate on-screen controls and other navigable features for an extremely efficient workflow. And because the pen display can work with both Mac and PC, operating system gestures are always available to the user. Multi-touch with Linux depends on application support. There is a convenient on/off button for artists and designers who prefer to work in select applications without the benefits of multi-touch.

In addition, Wacom has added an expandable bezel to the Cintiq Pro 27, on which you can add a small extension table to place a keyboard or smartphone, for example. The 1/4″ UNC Photo thread mounts can also be used to attach webcams and other accessories.
