Kamvas 12 Pen Display from Huion: A Comprehensive Review

Kamvas 12 Pen Display from Huion: A Comprehensive Review

Huion has provided this Pen Display for an honest review. All opinions below are mine.


Huion has a reputation of providing affordable high-quality graphic tablets to artists, designers, and other creative professionals. The Kamvas 12 Pen Display is one of the latest offerings from the company, targeting probably beginners in the pen display world, and with a price of less than a couple of hundred euros, this one looks really interesting!

Design and Build Quality

The Kamvas 12 is a well-designed pen display with a sleek slim profile and minimal bezels. It has a 11.6-inch screen with full HD resolution (1920 x 1080) and 178 degrees viewing angle, making it optimal for multiple perspectives. Although not a solid build as the Inspiroy Giano we recently reviewed, the tablet is built with high-quality materials, making it feel sturdy and durable. It also comes with an adjustable stand that although it has a bit cheap feel, it conveniently allows you to work at different angles and it totally is enough for the lightweight tablet.

Drawing Experience

The drawing experience on the Kamvas 12 is excellent. I was very positively surprised, was expecting way less for a budget pen display like that but it really feels nice to draw! The response of the pen is great, again the pen doesn’t need any charging or batteries like the Giano, which is great. Drawing on the screen feels natural, bit like pen-on-paper, making it a perfect choice for those transitioning from traditional art to digital art.

Ease of Use and Setup

Setting up the Kamvas 12 is easy. The tablet comes with a cable usb-c cable that splits into 2 usb and 1 HDMI , looks a bit weird but works very straightforward. You just plug it and immediately you have the screen on. You can assign it from the driver to which screen you want to control, as well as assign shortcuts for all the programs you are using ( has 8 assignable keys) but even that default configuration works fine and it’s easy to learn.

Pros and Cons


Amazing value for money
Very portable due to its small size.
Excellent drawing experience
Compatible with various software
Easy setup and user-friendly


The small size might make it difficult to hit the small buttons in programs like PS , AI etc. You can change the zoom settings I think though, but I never tried it.

Although it does the job, the stand could have been a bit more stable and sturdy.

Whats in the box



The Kamvas 12 Pen Display from Huion is an excellent tablet for a beginner digital artist looking to get his/her first pen display for an immersive drawing experience. With that price/ quality ratio its really a solid choice for somebody who hasn’t used a pen display before.
