Default Which Mouse is best for Digitizing?

What type of mouse do you use for digitizing? 2 button, 3 button, wheel, stylus, etc? Wireless or connected?

Once we had an employee use a gaming hand and he programmed it for the digitizing shortcuts that worked best for him. What do you use?

The mice to use to me depends grately on the comfort to use of the digitiser. Someone left handed will not have the same comfort like the right handed. Therefore no particular mouse is better than the other.

Hi,

I have personally used TrackBall mice since for ever and only used them for graphic design, digitizing and anything in between.

Logitech has several models available (wired and wireless) with more or less buttons.

Ditto. I have always used a trackball by Logitech. It is comfortable and eliminates rotator cuff injury.

Buy a Wacom tablet for fast, precise control.

If not a wacom I would suggest a trackball... but not one of those wimpy ones that these guys are talking about.

Gilligan.. that looks different. Do you have experience with this ? So far my favorite is actually a Gaming Hand... like a mechanical glove thing... goes down your fingers and you just program each part to whatever your common functions or combo of functions are. Reminds me of the movie Minority Report.... I cannot wait until digitizing is done like that... lol

Robert... I have used this thing since it's "first version" (might not really have been first, but it was serial/ps2)



I own three of them... I'd prefer this in gaming myself... never have to really pick your hand up like with a mouse... you can do 360's all day long with the flick of the ball.

Granted, I don't do any gaming... but I love the precision of the large ball (it's about the size of a snooker ball) and the ability to place it and let it go where you want it THEN click is great as opposed to possibly moving off your target pixel when clicking.
