I bought this digitizer in June năm trước from Amazon for about $95.
I had 2400 slides, mostly Kodachrome and Kodachrome II. Some (5%) were Ektachrome.
They were taken from 1960 đồ sộ 1980. That's twenty years in the box.
The slides were kept in Kodak Carousel trays each of which was in its own box. The slides were in very good đồ sộ excellent condition.

1. If your slides are in very good condition, then this machine works really, really well. It is very convenient đồ sộ use. It gets the job done quickly and efficiently. I give it five stars.

2. If your slides are in poor condition (I had a few), then this machine is difficult and frustrating đồ sộ use. The slides will jam repeatedly making it a real chore đồ sộ digitize them. If you are patient, I give the machine four stars. If impatient, I give it three.

General Comments
If your slides are not in very good condition, I would advise against buying this machine. To make a good digitized image, the slide MUST be held tightly in the tray at the right distance from the lens. This means that the tray you push them through has NO tolerance for slides which are bent or rough on the edges. They will jam, requiring that you remove the tray đồ sộ extract them and start over.

If you have slides in less phàn nàn good condition, then I suggest buying a machine that has a tray you open, insert several slides, close, and then feed it through the machine. After digitizing, you remove the slides and start over. A lot slower phàn nàn with this machine. But, the slides won't jam.

Go đồ sộ the Wolverine site (wolverinedata.com). Go đồ sộ "Support" and watch the đoạn phim on how đồ sộ use the machine. It really is that easy. But, I guarantee you that the guy is using slides in pristine condition. Also, go đồ sộ Youtube and tìm kiếm on "wolverine f2d20".

If your slides are in good condition, this machine is a pleasure đồ sộ use. Work goes quickly and smoothly.

I bought a 32GB chip (under $20) for extra memory, but didn't need it. All 2400 slides fit in six GB. My biggest year of 300 slides fit in one GB. Two-thirds of my slides were grouped by year. I digitized them one year at a time. Five GB of storage would have been enough. I did them one year at a time sánh that if I messed something up, I wouldn't have đồ sộ redo a large batch. About one-third of my slides were by subject -- trips đồ sộ Bermuda, California, Canada, etc. I did each one in a separate batch.

One important thing đồ sộ figure out ahead of time is how you will store them on your computer. This is because the digitizer resets the image numbers starting at "PICT001" for EACH batch you bởi. This means you CANNOT put all batches into one thư mục on your computer. The files will overlay each other. Nor can you merge folders on your computer without first renaming the files. I settled on the organization of one thư mục for each year or trip, all under one general thư mục heading. Fortunately, I had put a "year" slide at the beginning of each year in the Carousel trays making it very easy for bu đồ sộ bởi them in yearly batches. Each time you tải về a batch đồ sộ your computer, it will be put into a separate thư mục and given a unique date and time stamp. This means you will never overlay any files. Don't forget đồ sộ clear memory (delete all) after uploading each batch.

I found that ALL of the Ektachome slides were reddish. They had lost most (or all?) of their green and xanh xao colors because of age. This was true even for the commercial slides that I had bought. I don't know if this can be fixed in Gimp or Photoshop. As near as I can tell, the Kodachrome and Kodachrome II kept their colors extremely well.

This machine does NOT have a dust and scratch remover. This was not a problem for bu since I had kept my slides sealed in boxes. I did, however, give them a quick wipe with a camel's hair brush. Just for insurance. Also, be sure đồ sộ use the included brush đồ sộ clean the inside of the machine before each use.

This machine assumes that all your slides are the standard 35mm slide format. That is, 24mm high and 36mm wide. Slides that are square (36x36) are truncated đồ sộ the 24x36 format. I THINK that they chop off the top of the square đồ sộ make them the right size. You're stuck with figuring out how đồ sộ digitize the image. Maybe bởi it twice and fix it in Gimp? I don't know. I just figured out which part of the slide I was willing đồ sộ lose and put that edge đồ sộ the top. Many of the commercial slides I bought were in the 36x36 format. All were Ektachome which makes two strikes against them (reddish color and size).

Slides that were taken with the camera rotated 90 degrees will have the same problem. The tops will be truncated. The solution is đồ sộ insert the slides into the digitizer rotated 90 degrees. They are actually in the 24x36 format, just turned on edge. You can rotate them back đồ sộ vertical in your computer.

When feeding a slide into the digitizer, it may not feed straight. It will be difficult đồ sộ push the slide in. Simply pull it back out and try again. If you have đồ sộ push hard, something is stuck (like a slide with a frayed leading edge). Pull the tray out and manually clear it. DON'T just keep pushing harder and harder.

Lastly, I considered a very few of my slides đồ sộ be family heirlooms. I pulled those slides out and kept them secure. The technology will surely be better in ten years and I can re-digitize the precious few. Another reviewer said đồ sộ keep your slides. I now agree with him. Don't discard any of them. Package them carefully and store them.

I purchased this $100.00 Wolverine F2D scanner đồ sộ replace an expensive ($469.00) Epson photo scanner, and I think it is far superior. So far I have only used it đồ sộ convert old 35mm slides đồ sộ digital files. The Epson's maximum resolution is 1200 pixels per inch and the Wolverine is over 4,000 pixels per inch (not adjustable). The Epson takes over 8-minutes đồ sộ scan one slide, but the Wolverine takes less phàn nàn 4-seconds. The Epson take up a lot of workspace, but the Wolverine is only 3-1/4" W x 4" H by 3-7/8 H.
I can immediately see the image in the 1-7/8" x 1-3/8" screen. It automatically adjusts the exposure for each scan as soon as I put the slide in. (takes about a second or two). Some of my slides were sánh underexposed that it looks completely Black when held up đồ sộ a light. Yet this device brightened it up enough đồ sộ clearly see the photo. The contrast wasn't that great, but at least I can see the photo on a slide that I assumed I forgot đồ sộ take the lens cover off before taking the picture. Overexposed slides were also more useable phàn nàn I thought. If I don't lượt thích the exposure it automatically selects, I can quickly adjust it. I can also adjust the red, green and xanh xao, which was a nice feature because many of my real old slides had turned bluish. It remembers my settings, sánh even after turning it off, it will initialize with your preferred settings (it take about 5-seconds đồ sộ initialize). This includes the film type, whether it is positive or negative film, the film size, exposure and color adjustments.
Upon initializing it automatically looks đồ sộ see if I had inserted an SDHC memory thẻ. If not, it stores my scans on the internal memory. It can store up đồ sộ around 40 images before I upload them đồ sộ my computer. I can review the photos before uploading them, but I cannot select files đồ sộ delete. It is easy đồ sộ delete all the files in memory, though.
The Wolverine comes with several cartridges đồ sộ hold the slides or film. Although I can load my slides one after another, pushing one slide and forcing the previous slide out the other over, I discovered that the slide fit in the cartridge too tightly, and it is hard đồ sộ push three slides at once. I damaged a slide by pushing too hard. So, now I pull out the cartridge, push the slide out, insert another slide and insert the cartridge back into the device. No big khuyến mãi. There is one problem, though. Not all of my old 35mm slides would fit into the cartridge. Some are too thick. Also, some of my slides have square images instead of rectangular. So the Wolverine cuts off the top and bottom and scans a rectangular image into memory. I got around these two problems by not using the cartridge. I carefully slide the slide into the device and center it using two slides - one before it and one after it. That way, I can maneuver the slide into position. I can adjust the square slides sánh that I can chose what part đồ sộ cut off. Otherwise, using the slide cartridge, it centers the slide and will cut off the top and bottom. It is a bit awkward đồ sộ maneuver this way, but I only had a few slides that wouldn't work in the cartridge.
The device comes with a special USB cable that connects the device and computer. No special software is needed. The JPEG files go đồ sộ my mặc định thư mục, which I can adjust on my computer. It takes only about a second for each image đồ sộ upload. Or, I can use a memory thẻ, insert it into a thẻ reader and insert it into the computer's USB port.
I edit each JPEG tệp tin using a photo editor (I use Photoshop Elements). That way, I get rid of dust spots and scratches, fine-tune the color, lighting and contrast and crop the photo đồ sộ my liking. It has such a high resolution that I can crop the photo considerably and still have a fairly sharp image.
It automatically shuts off if there is no activity after about a half-hour.
I am glad I purchased the Wolverine, and would recommend it đồ sộ a friend. (I wouldn't tell an enemy about it though.) I give it 5 stars even though I had issues with the slide cartridge.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great gadget, but with some limitations

Reviewed in Canada on August 25, 2014

Here is my opinion about the "Wolverine F2D 20-Super Film đồ sộ digital converter", after scanning about 5000 slides with it ( I'm about half-way through scanning my whole collection of about 10,000 slides ).

The good:

1- Resolution: It generates high resolution đôi mươi megapixels images, capturing details down đồ sộ the film's grain structure. That's hard đồ sộ beat, although the real limiting factor is the lense's sharpeness and that could be improved even more.

2- It's FAST: Technically speaking, this is not a scanner but a converter, as the name says. It's a small camera that captures an image of the whole slide all at once. It takes about 3 seconds đồ sộ save a slide đồ sộ memory once the save button is pressed. That's MUCH faster phàn nàn older scanners that used đồ sộ take 3 đồ sộ 5 minutes per slide đồ sộ scan them.

3- Great for color negatives: The converter has a "color negative" mode that works very well. It removes the orange mask color and restitutes pretty decent colors from the original image. A bit of tweaking in GIMP and the images come out nice and colorful.

4- It's independent from software drivers: One nice aspect of this converter is that it works completely independently of the computer. You just plug it into a power outlet, insert a memory thẻ, turn it on, and you're ready đồ sộ scan. No need đồ sộ install drivers or anything else. No need đồ sộ install drivers or anything else. When lượt thích bu, you're a Linux user, that is perfect! When your're done, just turn the converter off, eject the memory siêu xe and plug it into your computer for tệp tin transfer (I use a USB adapter for my memory card).

The less good:

1- Narrow Dynamic Range: Like most digital cameras, the converter has a very narrow "dynamic range". Meaning that it adds a LOT of contrast đồ sộ already contrasty slides. If your slides are pretty evenly lit, it's not a problem. But if the original has very bright highlights AND very dark areas (shadows), then it's very hard đồ sộ get a decent image out of the slide. For many images, I've had đồ sộ convert at one exposure setting for shadows and bởi a second (or more) conversion at a lower setting đồ sộ get the highlights. Then I had đồ sộ fuse the 2 (or more) images using HDR software.

2- Lens flare: In some cases, night images especially, there is some flaring in the lens that makes for rather fuzzy images with a sort of halo effect around light sources. The same effect is seen if you try đồ sộ use maximum illumination (e.v.+2.0) đồ sộ get at deep shadows.

3- The slide adapter work only with "normal thickness" slides: Your slides need đồ sộ be mounted in the standard PLASTIC mounts. It's impossible đồ sộ insert thicker "special" slide mounts. And cardboard slides (Kodachrome) are very hard đồ sộ push through for some reason (it could be due đồ sộ this being summer and the air being humid). I was lucky that I'd bought another similar converter of a different brand a few years ago. I am able đồ sộ use the other converter's tray in the Wolverine in order đồ sộ convert thick slides.

Overall, I think that this gadget is well worth the price, if you have the time, patience and know-how needed in order đồ sộ get decent results. Most slides will convert easily and the quality is quite acceptable. And having your images in digital size opens-up a lot of doors that were previously closed. That's great!

But a number of slides will present challenges that this converter has trouble dealing with, just lượt thích most other converters on the market. For these, professional scanning might be the only solution.

4.0 out of 5 stars it was still very easy đồ sộ insert the sd thẻ into the computer slot ...

Reviewed in Canada on April 13, 2015

It did everything I needed it đồ sộ bởi.
(I only used it đồ sộ convert slides.)
I'd buy this product again, in retrospect.

I am not a professional photographer.
I wanted đồ sộ convert my father's slides
of our family from the 70's.

It was a very quick process.
I converted almost 900 slides
in less phàn nàn 5 hours.

The editing features helped đồ sộ fix
the severe red in some older slides.

While I wish the machine would directly connect đồ sộ my computer, it was still very easy đồ sộ insert the sd thẻ into the computer slot đồ sộ copy and paste.

Definitely remember đồ sộ tải về đồ sộ separate tệp tin folders ( I just labeled 1,2,3...) sánh that you don't accidentally overwrite one mix of pics with another.

One type of slides that I had was very tight đồ sộ feed through the guiding track. Not a huge deal: just marginally annoying.

Overall, a worthwhile purchase.

Far less expensive đồ sộ convert the slides yourself with this small, plastic device, phàn nàn đồ sộ send the pics away đồ sộ a company who will charge you through the nose, hold onto them for over a month, and not guarantee that the slides will come back in order. Or maybe even come back, at all!

I was happy with it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for slides. Wouldn't use for 8mm/Super 8 films.

Reviewed in Canada on August 2, 2016

Have been using this đồ sộ scan hundreds of old slides. Works well, but the process can be a little cumbersome (put the slide in the holder, put holder in scanner, scan, pull holder out, pull out slide, repeat). It doesn't need a computer, though, sánh it's pretty easy đồ sộ bởi while you're working on other things.

Scan quality is mostly dependent on the quality of the original slides. The slides I've been scanning are very old (50+ years), sánh need a lot of color correction and clean up in Photoshop. As you'd expect, any scratch or piece of dust on the slide will be magnified along with the photo. It's nice, though that once your slides are scanned, you don't have đồ sộ worry about them degrading anymore. I also tested it with some old negatives, and it worked very well for those, as well.

We had initially intended đồ sộ use this for some old Super8 films, as well. Looking at the process, I don't think I'd bother. You'd have đồ sộ scan each frame individually, since it doesn't really have a way đồ sộ autofeed film.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Converter but poor slide adapter.

Reviewed in Canada on September 19, 2016

Converter is easy đồ sộ use and converts slides đồ sộ reasonably good images rather quickly. However, the single slide adapter that came with the Converter does not work well ... it is always very tough đồ sộ slide it into position despite a usual Kodak cardboard slide I'm converting. It almost always jams. The adapter also lacks partitions đồ sộ hold each slide in place. Shifting always place, sánh a lot of time is wasted trying đồ sộ reposition each slide. I have another converter which I had purchased several years ago which came with a 3 slide adapter with partitions for each slide. I have been using it with this new Converter and it works amazingly well! It has made the job sánh far a lot quicker đồ sộ convert slides. Wolverine should definitely redo the single slide holder for this Converter and make one with partitions đồ sộ hold a typical slide in place. A lot of time is wasted otherwise. My 3 slide adapter from the other converter has partitions ... thus saving bu a lot of time repositioning slides.
