Got the Kamvas 22 Plus Last Week
Question about your set up. Do you have trouble getting your Kamvas to connect to your iMac? I connect mine to a Macbook Pro and sometimes have to unplug and plug it back in to get the Macbook to recognize it. I've tried using the multi-plug cord that comes with the Kamvas, as well as a USB 3.1 Gen 2, but they both do it. I'm trying to figure out if it's a driver problem, or a Huion-to-Mac problem.
Hmmm good question - I'm using a 2014 27" iMac at the moment, and it connected without a hitch and I haven't had any issues. It was WAY less cumbersome to set up than my XP-Pen was (those drivers to me were way more finicky where I had to install different versions to get it to work right).
wow, thanks for the review! I am thinking to get myself Kamvas 22 plus as well. I heard from some fellow artists that with a display tablet, it's so quickly heated and burn your hand. Does it happen to Kamvas 22 plus? and how are the colors?
I'm detecting no heat at all, like anywhere. I use it as my second monitor when I'm not drawing on it and it's not even warm to the touch on the surface.
I spent some time fiddling with the colors and I don't have any equipment or anything to measure it but the tests im doing comparing it to my iMac and iPad screens are really darn close. I wish I could say definitively if it was better than the 22 standard, but I'm assuming the extra 40% you get from the Plus model is better??
I got a desk arm mount for my kamvas so I can tuck it up out of the way when I'm not drawing, I highly recommend getting a good arm mount for people who want the 22" but don't have the largest desk.
I'm also considering one of those but haven't pulled the trigger. I saw Costco has a great one for less than $50 if you wanted to actually go look at it in person and verify it's sturdy.
@jdubz Great to read reviews like this. Thanks for sharing. And that is a great price! Please keep us posted on successes and frustrations.
thanks for the update. the resolution thing is not annoying to you?
I own the kamvas 15.6 or something.
from what inch does it starts to get to 3000..5000?
So far no. Admittedly I've never used a 4k screen, so that might be because more that I haven't seen what I'm missing out on. So that might really depend on who you ask. I know people who think iPads are unacceptable resolutions, so I think there's a lot of preference there.
On your second question - I'm not sure I understand how to measure that

@jdubz Ive seen a 900$ huion 24 inch with 2.5K resolution. so i'm guessing it has to be much bigger for 4K definition.
but its not that, the thing with these tablets is that when you do careful color fills you need to get to pixel size to get it right. which sounds to me kinda clumsy with today's technology?
@arielg Yeah quite a bit bigger to get that full definition - the newer Wacom's are full 4k in the Pro line. And yeah I did see what they're calling a "QHD" size, which I think is like 2550x1440 on the 24" Huions and XP-Pen pro models.
I kinda figured if pretty much every Wacom Cintiq until the last couple years was working just fine on a 1920x1080 resolution, it ought to be fine

@jdubz im sure its fine yes. in regular size you wont see pixelated so that's most important.
probably having fun there i bet, with that kind of size.
I mean do you feel a difference in freedom over the page/canvas ? I'm guessing yes?

@Nyrryl-Cadiz what about something more reasonable like this for a stand?
top one might be a bit small but the other one is 40 quid (A2 size).
@sigross I tried a couple of these, even one of those adjustable laptop stands and they just kept falling short. Like the wooden one shown here - the lip isn't substantial enough and would need to be modified to hold the tablet. And you'd want to then put some kind of grip material on the surface so it didn't slide around.
I think I actually spent more money trying to adapt cheaper stands than just buying the real deal hah.
But like this one here from Huion from what I tell will go into any vesa mount configuration and it's $50. So far that seems to me to be the most reasonable one that is the most adjustable. I bet some of the other knockoff manufacturers also sell similar stands separately, but I can say this one is very solid.
@sigross hi! I haven’t tried any of these but they look sturdy enough. You should give them a try and let us know your experience. As for me, I’m such a cheapskate so I’ll stick with my $0 towels for now. Nothing beats free stuff.

@Nyrryl-Cadiz And towels are multi-purpose too! tbh for my iPad I have a mini-bean bag just to angle it a bit. I could probably use that on a bigger drawing pad too (or get 2 bean bags). It's got 2 perfect settings.
@sigross very hi-tech Both of us are so fancy
You guys are out of control lol

Does it still works well?

@sigross the incredible thing is that you can type and draw and it stays still. I use a skullcandy push headphones case when I need to prop my 12.9 ipad pro at a low angle

I'd be interested to know how things have gone over the last couple of years as well. I'm a pretty happy iPad Pro + Procreate user, but always looking to see where things are at with the Cintiq's and Wacom alternatives.
