    I opine: why not simply use a scan app or photo your drawing with a phone or tab pc.

    Can we cut a normal pen refill to its size and use rather than using a similar smaller size refills

    Since this video is old, just wanted to know whether there are any alternative product (wacom or any other brand) to this which is more flexible?

    hello, about the bambo spark.
    can you reuse the pages, say you draw sketches, on a page, upload them, on that page, and after a while reuse the same page, to erase the drawing and reuse the page again. ?
    and what about the ink do you have to refill it with ink?
    appreciate your response .

    Beware! Wacom appear to have taken down their cloud service. Their support told me all your notes should be back online by end of July. If you depend on access to your notes in the meantime you should immediately export them to another service. If you lose or reset your phone/tablet, notes will apparently not be accessible (will not sync back to your new or reset device) until their cloud is back in two months.

    Hey! Great in depth review. I have a question regarding the pen nib size. Do you know roughly what the size is, as in is it comparable to a 0.7 fine point? Or more like a 1.0 medium point? Thanks in advance!

    it's a fake. The app 'inkspace' doesn't work correctly. It often lost connection with your phone or tablet and you lost your notes.
    You have to chang/refresh page in a few minute. Whitout this app, your bamboo spark or slate is only a plastic support for your paper block notes, but it's very expansive.

    Thanks for this great review! I have a question. Is it indispensable to use that pen or it works with any bollpoint pen that we could buy in any shop. Because the important thing looks to be the correct pressure while writing, not the specific ink or pen, isn't it? Thanks!

    Thank you I found your review very helpful. I have used it for sketching and writing I find it works very well to capture your thoughts and ideas and then being able to share the image. It is brilliant.

    Hi thanks for the video. One question…Do you need this holder to be able to make notes on the A5 paper, or can you directly accomplish what you showed in the video, by Not using the holder; maybe I'll just use my regular A5 pages and start scribbling!

    Does Wacom Bamboo Spark have a "Live Mode" just like the Bamboo Slate and Folio?
