Anyone using a stylus?

Postby neiloliver243 » January 14th, 2016, 7:00 am

Hi,

I'm really keen to use this with handwriting. Can anyone recommend a good stylus?

I'm confused what type I'd need...

I picked up a rubbish stylus in the pound shop which is rubbish an misses strokes.

When I have the funds I'll probably pick up a Wacom Bamboo to see how that works.

Would definitely be interested to hear from anyone with a decent stylus for comments/recommendations!

That looks interesting, but is it worth the premium for the iPad click and connect feature, does it function with the linx?

Hi Dann.

I'm tempted with this, I'm new to the whole stylus use and want to make sure I spend around £30 on a stylus it will work for me, do you find you use it and it works well?

Thanks,

Neil.

I don't ever use that bit, so I've never tried it!

I just like how fine the tip is

Picked up a Bamboo Duo (potentially not genuine) but have found it drops contact on my 1010.

works absolutely fine on my phone (Moto X Play) though...

Dann, does the one you linked have a hard or soft nib? Wondering if the 1010 just needs a firmer touch...

I've tried a couple of experiments, and found that the digitiser needs to see a flat, semiconducting surface of between 8 and 12 mm to register a touch. As well as a human finger, I tried to use the end of a Biro tube with an 8 mm - wide strip of electrostatic-shielded bag material (translucent, shiny plastic with a thin coating of nickel or tin) taped to it. The end which touches the screen and the part you grip with your fingers needs to be clear of tape.

The shielded bag can be obtained from someone you know who works in the electronics industry.

I also found that items with high conductivity (solid metal) such as aluminium rod of any size do not work; it needs to be a semiconductor. Graphite may work (I haven't tried), but is likely to be messy.

It looks clumsy, but the charge is concentrated in the very centre of the end, and the results when using the 'stylus' with MS Paint are surprisingly good, for something which has no real cost to it (just ten minutes of your valuable time and some scrap plastic). I have a screen protector film on my 1010, in case that matters.

If I find a better (free) solution, I'll update.

Received these today, must say....after using a friends Surface Pro, these make the 1010 just as good, maybe a little slower but just as accurate. hope this helps :D
