[Amazon.ca] Huion KAMVAS Pro 16 Drawing Monitor Tablet 15.6" IPS ($599 - 200 = $399 All time low)

This is for the artists and designers out there looking to upgrade from a regular tablet and 6 figure RFDers (i.e. everyone) or insane OSU enthusiasts .

There was a pretty good deal a month back on a regular Huion tablet and I've since upgraded to one of their display models. The Pro 16 is on sale now ($200 clippable coupon) which makes it pretty hot as it looks to be an all time low, a very good value alternative to Wacom. Also comes with a stand which is neat.

Per CCC, ATL is $479.20 in early Feb. Per Keepa, the ATL is corroborated as 479.2 is the lightning deal price, happening around twice a month, so it's a new ATL right now by $80.

EDIT: Was able to ask the seller (which seems to be Huion directly via Amazon, and not through a 3rd party) to see how long this will last - the $200 clippable will available to the 27th.
(I can't recall if there was a clippable before this or not, but I know on several of their items like my Pro 13, there was a base clippable. Not sure what is the base for this one though)

Thanks OP, was just looking at replacing two Intuos 3 units that Wacom decided weren’t Catalina compatible.

Dang that's a shame.

I know Huion's display line has upgradable firmware, but mine (pro13) shipped out with the latest one.

While yes, that is correct, I don't feel like this is anything close to a deal breaker. To me, the eraser on the back of a pen is an antiquated function, meant at the beginning of the adoption of tablets to mimic a traditional pencil. Comparative display tablets at this range and above, including the wacom one (which just came out last month) doesn't utilize this function anymore. Most pens. regardless of manufacturer now come standard with 2 programmable buttons, so it's as simple as binding it to "E" (mine was default E and right click).

I would much rather press a button to erase while holding the pen in a normal drawing position versus flipping the whole pen around. It really breaks the flow of drawing otherwise.

Is the only difference between the versions screen size?

Start with pencil and paper or buy a $50 drawing tablet to start, Huion, Wacom and XP-Pen are good.

Buy an ipad with apple pen support. Find a used pro on kijiji if you want a laminated screen.

I say this because procreate is ios exclusive and is really easy to use, and its $10.

If you buy a drawing tablet you have to connect it to a pc, and chances are, you wont (lets be honest here)

Yeah, pretty much for the Pro series. Larger screen + more hotkeys. The panels used might be different (I'm assuming this since the OSD menu for the 13.3" and 15.6" are different)

The non-pro line has a matte film screen instead of matte treated glass. Not sure if there are additional differences with the non-pro though.

Yeah, I agree with the previous comments.

If you don't know how you'll feel about drawing as a hobby you would keep up with, start with paper and pencils. If you want to try digital art out, go for a $50-80 tablet. It's noted that for beginners, it's harder to start digital art on a regular tablet (i.e. no display) because you're moving the brush and seeing the strokes, while not actually gauging the physical "brush" (pen). That's not to say that they aren't awesome tools as amazing art and animation can come out of these tablets, but they're harder to use vs display tablets as a total beginner.

I think the new Kamvas pros are laminated glass while the others weren't. it means the pen is much closer to the spot its supposed to be on the screen.

I used a wacom at work and at home, but recently got a huion (not display, just a standard tablet) to replace my dead intuos pro. These things are killer for the price, no issues with them at all. The only way I'd ever go back to wacom is if it's a work expense, aside from that there's not a lot of reasons to pay that extra $$$.

Killer deal, but back when this was all I could afford I returned mine as I legit hated it. I can't remember exactly what the problem was but it just felt bad and didn't work as I wanted it to. I was coming from another non Wacom too, so it's not like I had wacom bias. So sick of the annoying driver problems with various not Wacom devices. Got a Dell Canvas eventually and boy is that simply the best device for the price. Much cheaper than a Wacom of similar resolution and mostly the same otherwise. Obviously a completely different price bracket and tier. I really do recommend paying more for a larger sized screen if possible, the 21inch is a HUGE upgrade in usability. Also, Huion is releasing a 24inch QHD model this summer, likely 1000+ but still a bargain compared to a Wacom.

If you really do art a lot, you will almost always have a natural path of upgrading every time your financial situation improves, as you will find your product lacking until you get to QHD. So saving money and not buying a tiny model is the smart play if you can wait to save up for the 21inch. I havent once thought about looking into a 4k model since having my Canvas, so it's really a solid endpoint. I WILL probably do so at some point, but its really the sweetspot.

I am in a similar camp, I know how to draw but it was ages since I had done it seriously and wanted to get back into it and learn new aspects of drawing.
I recently bought a Huion in the $65 range and connected it to my pc. It's easy peasy. But you DO NEED AN APPLICATION LIKE PHOTOSHOP to use the tablet-to-pc functionality.
Can anyone confirm if free programs, like Krita allows this too?
