If you're using it just for editing and maybe some simple image editing then the Bamboo works just fine. I have an Intuos and a Bamboo. Since I usually just use Premiere Pro and After Effects I just use my Bamboo all the time. You mostly don't need all those pressure sensitive features for that.
Thanks a million thats exactly what Id need it for.
You may or may not like using a Pen with your NLE.
Personally I have tried it many times over a number of years and found working with the pen grip was too "cramping" on my hand and for no real benefit.
I now use a large Logitech Gaming mouse (Wireless) with high resolution precison set ..and find it to be very relaxing in the palm of my hand. Benefits are the programmable function buttons on this mouse. eg In and Out Points, Play Toggle, Insert / Overlay etc..
Great thanks ill take a look at that option cheers!
