Here you get the best deal possible.
Over 60 days and I'm still waiting for my delivery. It was supposed to be a Christmas present for a friend too. Definitely won't be purchasing from this company ever again
I prefer the prism NeoLucida over the XL but like anything else associated with Art, it takes practice to perfect its use. Offers an intimate, concentrated view of whatever it is you're drawing. Great for sorting out perspective, composition, etc. quickly without extraneous interference. Beautiful design, perfectly engineered.
I bought both and of the two, I prefer the smaller NeoLucida with a prism viewer. Both are helpful in organising the elements in any drawing - perspective, composition, etc. - but the prism Lucida provides more intimate observation. Bird watchers or anyone accustomed to looking through binoculars would understand ... total concentration without extraneous interference. A great product, beautifully engineered, and at a great price. Full compliments to Garcia and Levin and Big Idea - thank you.
Not a very useful tool. It is hard to use, difficult to get a decent size image and still reach the drawing surface, puts stress on the neck trying to line up the image, and even in the best possible situations, it is not easy to get a decent picture onto the page. Outlines are not too bad, but anything more is very hard to manage.
I couldn't recommend this.
