For the installation of the tablet, I had no problem it's really plug an play, a real treat!
In terms of image quality, the colors are very well calibrated, they are even excellent! The brightness of the device is perfect and the contrast excellent! here we have a quality screen. The sensations when painting with this tablet are really very good, the stylus is excellent and reacts very well to pressure and tilt. I strongly recommend this tablet, for this budget, it is simply the best!
I’m left handed and flipping the screen to make the express keys On the right side of the device was fairly simple. However you will need to use the Huion driver to also flip where the sensors track the stylus so you won’t have the cursor moving in the opposite direction of the stylus.
Overall very happy with my purchase and use it almost daily to draw.
Once when I went to use it there were blue bars across the screen (attached picture) , as if I had dropped it or accidentally pressed to hard on it — neither of these things happened though. The loading screen was fine though so I knew the screen wasn’t damaged. Turning it on and off again via the power button did nothing, I had to actually unplug the cord and plug it back in again.
That brings me to my second gripe, even when you turn it off via the power button your desktop still senses the second screen of the tablet and the tablet will still warm up as though it’s being used.
The tablet also gets warm in the top right corner pretty fast. Not enough to make me wanna stop using it but it’s pretty annoying.
The stylus is amazing though. I really enjoy the pen holder, coming from an iPad it makes keeping track of the pen so much easier.
I wish the stand it came with had more tilt options but it gets the job done.
I have googled absolutely everything to help because of poor instructions and lack of information with product..
I am very upset as my 13 year son loves graphic design and has begged me for this product for a year.
If anyone could help that would be awesome because the company isn’t

Whether you're new to digital art or looking for an upgrade, I highly recommend picking up a KAMVAS Pro, I got the 12" because it fits really nicely into my laptop bag (it actually fits in my cargo pockets of my "production" pants that I wear on set or in the woods), but all the KAMVAS Pro units have the same architecture and functional capacity. The programmable buttons are a huge game changer for me, my first pen display didn't have anything of the sort, so this thing blew my workflow up haha.
Check out the video! It covers a lot of ground pretty quickly, and honestly there's a lot to go into with this unit. I've done a few of these "sponsored" tests for different companies, I'm always 100% honest about my experiences with the products, but wooooow - this one was a big one for me, the Pro 12 is legitimately the best product I've ever been asked to review and it's gonna be in my laptop bag from now on no matter what.
If you're not into videos, see below. I'm pasting the writeup I made for filming, it's got all the thoughts I organized and put into the video in written form.
The KAMVAS Pro 12 is a graphics tablet made by Huion, it features a couple programmable functions along the side, tilt sensitivity, and a 1080p display with excellent color depth. The pen also doesn't require batteries or charging, which I enjoy because I never remembered to charge my pen on my old display, and the whole setup here can be packed into your laptop bag with your computer - in fact, I have this super fat Dell that's just huge and heavy and this tablet still fits in the bag with it because it's so compact.
Real quick before we really get into it - I'll be releasing a video soon where I use this exact tablet to make a font based on handwritten notes from an old book, so you can see a little more of me actually using it in-depth in that video once that's out. For now, I mostly just wanted to talk a little bit about my experience with getting it set up since that'll apply to everyone watching rather than, say, just illustrators or just photographers. Now!
The cables are a little weird - one one end, we have the HDMI and USB that go into your computer and the power cord, and at the other end is just a single USB C plug that goes into the tablet. I know that graphics, sound, power, even ethernet can be transferred via USB C, so part of me wonders whether it would be possible to make this setup work with just a straight USB C cable the same way a breakaway box works. It would eat your computer's battery power faster, but, it would make the cable situation way simpler. Either way, the current cable situation works fine for me and my computer, though I could see it being inconvenient in the event that someone's HDMI and USB ports aren't close to one another. In that case, though, you probably have at least one USB C port on your computer, so you can probably get away with using a USB C hub for this, though I haven't tested that out myself.
As soon as I plugged it in, it went to the default extra display setting, meaning it duplicated my screen onto this one. I'd say probably the majority of people using a mobile solution like this as opposed to a desktop display will probably use that setting, but my laptop has a 4K screen. So, when it's duplicated onto a 1080p screen, it looks really bad and blurry. So I switched it to "extend my display" mode and it was fine. But, the little function buttons on the side weren't doing anything, and after a quick Google search I discovered that the tablet actually has software you have to download to get all the usage out of it. Actually, as it was being installed, I realized that the included instructions literally say that, it's the very first thing. So, yeah. Anyway, the program is super intuitive, but I should mention (at least for me), since I had it on "extend my displays" mode, the program tried to map the tablet to the full span of both my screens together instead of just the little one. That's not ideal for my purposes haha. But, it means that I could use the tablet to draw across multiple monitors, which is kind of a cool feature even if I'll never do that. Either way, very easy to fix, just pick the display you want the tablet mapped to using this little menu here, it couldn't be easier.
I set up my hotkeys here a little differently than it comes from the factory; by default it's set so the scroll bar zooms in and out and these buttons control brush size, this one is an undo/redo, and this one lets you drag your way around the canvas. I switched it so these buttons control zooming in and out, this scroll bar here controls brush size, this one just does the undo command, and this one resets the whole canvas.
I did some quick tests for the sake of the review, and I can pretty confidently say that it works very nicely - it's more responsive and more accurate than my UG-2150 that I use with my desktop computer. I might have to pick up this tablet's big brother and replace my desktop tablet if ti functions as well as this. By default, the pen was actually way TOO responsive for me, but it's super easy to adjust the sensitivity right here in the tablet program, so once that was dialed in it worked perfectly. I recommend turning the sensitivity down a little in general - maybe it's just me, I do tend to have kind of a heavy hand when I draw, but I think the pressure is a little hard to control by default and I find it a lot easier with this curve applied.
Like I said before, I'll be talking a little more in-depth about using this in the font video, so that's about it for now. All in all, I feel like this tablet is a great example of how far this technology has come in the past few years - when I bought my first pen display, it cost more than double what this does, and it's not in any way portable, doesn't have tilt sensitivity, the pen has to be charged, it doesn't have any functions built in, and it's not even as accurate. My opinion may be a little biased because I'm comparing this to my older tech, but based on my own experiences this thing is great. I feel like a lot of people who would be looking at the KAMVAS series are probably either looking for their first graphic tablet or they're looking to upgrade to one that has a display from one that doesn't. I was personally looking to upgrade to something newer and more portable than my fat, old UG 2150 that has to stay on my desk.
If you've used the KAMVAS Pro 12 and have some tips and tricks you'd like to share, leave me a comment and tell me about it
1920 x 1080 display looks great. The set up was much easier than previous models from Huion. They've been listening and the drivers are better. Other than the fact that I had to run out and buy a USB-C hub to use this, I was up and running once it was plugged in. That was my biggest issue. No USB-C connection. I hope that will be an option in the future.
The tablet itself is lighter than the stand that comes with it. It's about as heavy as my iPad Pro with a case on it. Fits comfortably in my lap and even though it's wired, those did not get in the way or feel like I was working with a bunch of cables tangled around me. It was clean and I could draw on the couch or the bed.
The stand, which is actually included, is very sturdy and portable. It doesn't add too much extra bulk to my backpack.
The only thing not included was a smudge guard, which is their trademark. I liked getting one.
The cables are not bulky either. I can fit all of this in one of those laptop cases.
One thing I don't like about this tablet is that it's screen smudges and dirts so easily so I had to buy an artist glove to prevent prevent my skin oil from smudging all over the tablet which takes a WHILE to clean.
There are a few things I don't love about this product are the buttons on the side.. I find it easier to just use my keyboard than only having 4 buttons. The 3-in-1 cable is just a bit too short for my setup. I have to move it around carefully not to tug on wires when I store it. Finally, this wasn't an issue for me nor would I blame Huion. But I could see someone who isn't the best with computers have a hard time correctly setting up the screen and tablet work area.
So I started working on it and it had a huge displacement between the pen and what I painted on the screen, so I just calibrated the tablet on the configuration and it got fixed! It works incredible on Photoshop and Zbrush :).
Also the size is just fine! AMAZING PRODUCT for AMAZING PRICE!
I kept a star only because it does still work as a very tiny and overpriced second monitor, while I go back to my 5-year old Wacom pen tablet. There are many other budget screen tablet out there, so don't get this one.
12/29/2018: The tablet was a pain to set up. My main issue was that the 3-in-1 cable is HDMI, while my computer uses VGA. I had to buy several adapters before I got one to work. In addition, I had to Google a lot of stuff about how to get everything to map on the right monitors.
Everything else is pretty awesome, once set up is done. The colors are pretty good out of the box, and since I look at the cursor and not the pen tip, parallax is alright. I mostly draw with the center of the screen, so the size isn't bad either, but the bigger pro-13 might be worth considering.
the tablet arrived on time and it was in good condition. i was scared the pen wouldn’t work, or something would be off, but once i got everything set up, the pen and tablet worked great! the stand is very sturdy and the tablet feels well built. as a beginner, this tablet is really nice :)
+the tablets a decent price
First things first. The drivers are not provided on a disk and the booklet that comes with the product instructs the new owner to go to Huion's site to download the drivers. The problem was that Hurion's site was down for the entire day so the drivers could not be installed.
Admittedly, it was Christmas day so there were probably millions of new owners hitting the site trying to download the drivers for their product and Huion's server mostly liked crashed with all of the traffic. But that's just another reason why they should include a disk with the product!
Next I went to Huion's Facebook site and found that all comments were complaints about their site being down. However, one person was offering to place the drivers in Dropbox if you gave him the model number of the Hurion device. This is how I was able to get the drivers installed.
After installing the drivers on my PC, running Win 8.1 with a NON touch screen monitor, I did see the same programs loaded to my desktop PC show up on the tablet screen as well. And that is as far as I was able to go.
Not only could I not get any programs to open on the tablet, but every time I tried (using the pen to touch the particular program) the program opened on my desktop PC instead of the tablet! But the worst part of it was, a pop-up appeared on my PC monitor advising me that I could swipe my screen right to access more options. Did I mention that my desktop PC does not have a touch screen monitor!?
Could I make that pop-up go away on my non touch screen monitor? Nooooooo!
I read the owner's manual from beginning to end and found that it is incredibly thin on detail as is the Troubleshooting section. In fact, it didn't even mention the problems I was having. So, off to the internet I go to do a search to see if I could find anything related to software issue for the Hurion Kamvus Pro 12. I found nothing other than to links to the Huion site.
Did I mention that the Hurion site was down because they don't send a driver disk with their products and a bazillion people across the planet were trying to access that site which is why it probably crashed faster than a pumpkin dropped from the top of a skyscraper?
So next I went to Youtube to see if I could find any videos addressing the issues I was having, or barring that, any videos that might give detailed instructions on getting the tablet up and working for Windows.
Nope. I struck out there as well.
After 5 hours of trying to figure out the problems on my own, after uninstalling the drivers and reinstalling them, after restarting my computer several times, I still can't get this tablet to work.
This morning I was able to access the Huion site and once again, I uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers from their site with the same disappointing and frustrating results. Next, I tried calling the contact number Huion provides for support. It rang several times and then I got a voice message telling me that "the person you're trying to reach is unavailable." What? I quit!
I'm returning this product. I like my hair too much to keep pulling it out of my head in frustration.
Next problem is it's pretty Dull in brightness, but if you try to brighten it past about % Brightness you lose black and darker colors and this is after an hour of trying to get it working. :/
Lastly, 12 inches at 1080p is... a bit small. >_> just spend the extra and get the better product.
2 months later... So, Turns out the way they store this thing causes the lcd cells to color shift or something. this thing was VERY Green for about 2 weeks before I screwed with the settings, Also the Drawing Stand is Good quality but crap for THIS Tablet. The Tablet is round and the stand's Extremely loose lip is both flat and short making very little contact with the device. It's short by about 3 or 4 mm, which means at a higher angle for viewing it takes almost nothing to knock it off.
The all in one cord is meh. I have it on my desk to my left and when I get up out of the chair it disconnects and has to power back on. When my cat jumps in my lap, it does the same thing and for whatever reason, the Cord comes DOWN the side of the screen instead of up so there's a much higher chance of damaging either the port itself or the cable... which is also super stiff meaning snapping is a pretty good probability. I would love to give this thing a higher score, but well, it has too many "small" issues to be worth 4 stars.
