Quick! Every A1 / Wacom owner should read!

If you are like me you use a lot of nice tools for media creation.

One being the Canon A1.

The other being Wacom Intuos 3 graphics tablet.


WELL GUESS WHAT?!

When sitting on the tablet...the camera won't play back correctly! I thought I was seeing dropped frames/blank tapes, until I lifted my camera from the tablet a few inches. Voila! Perfect tapes, perfect capture.

The tablet now sits on my floor.

Hope this prevents someone from nearly killing themselves on a projects.

Interesting -- some kind of electrical interference from the tablet. Thanks for this report Brent,

Sorta like why you don't store tapes on top of monitors...magnetic field possibly.

Huh... weird.

My wacom 3 usually sits near my cam, no problems.

But I wonder if it's contributing to my sound lag?> Who knows :P

Wow... thanks for the warning... I have my Wacom Intuos 3 sitting right next to my A1 as I read this post. I'll be sure to keep it away next time... makes perfect sense at least. Would hate to ruin anything.

I would think this applies to ANY electrical device that could possibly emit interference & most if not all manuals for electronic gear have some kind of diddy in the manual regarding placement/installation anyway.

While we're on the subject...

Is the intuos 3 not THE BEST thing ever? I love mine to death. Best $400 I ever spent.

Works for me, but I think "whack 'em" is good too.

It's "wahcom". I had to call tech support years ago & confirmed it because I was curious myself.

Is the 'com' part pronounced like 'dot com', or more like the 'com' in 'computer' (cum)?

I suppose you could say it's as in "dot.com". I don't really hear a difference much and I don't pronounce computer as "cumputer".

Call it whatever you like :)
