Better than a professional scanning service!, January 9, 2012
By Robert S. Tobias (Arlington, VA USA)
This is the second slide scanner I've owned. The first one was a pain to use and the images were bad at best. I don't recall the brand and I tossed it out a long time ago. Last year my wife handed me a box of old slides she found when she was at her parents and asked me to "get them on the computer."
I found a highly recommended scanning service on line, sent them the slides and some money. Three weeks later I had my slides back and a CD with the scanned images. I thought they looked great, certainly better than anything I could do with my old scanner.
Last month I saw that Wolverine was selling this high resolution scanner. I've been using their Wolverine PASS200 Handheld Portable Documents, Books and Photo Scanner for a while and figured if they could make a hand scanner work as well as it does then their slide scanner would be worth a try.
Compared with my old scanner, this is a joy to use. It scans a slide in a few seconds. The internal memory can hold 8 or 9 slides and you can add your own SD card to hold as many as you need. It comes with a 120/240V 50/60Hz adapter. However all it needs is any USB compatible connection so you can connect the cable to a computer or any charger or USB battery power supply, for example the Duracell Instant USB Charger with Lithium ion battery / includes universal cable with USB and mini USB, you have handy. That means, by the way, that not only do I NOT need a computer to scan in slides and negatives but I also don't need a wall outlet.
I have also found a dust blower very handy. After I put slides in the carrier I give each side a few puffs and the resulting scans are dust free. You probably already have one for cleaning dust off your lenses and the insides of your cameras. If not, something like the Giottos AA1900 Rocket Air Blaster Large - Blackis what I use and it works very well.
OK, back to those professionally scanned slides. The video shows three of them, first as they came back from the scanning services and then as they were scanned by the Wolverine. From my experience, as shown in the examples provided, the Wolverine does a much better job of rendering clear, vibrant images.
