Wolverine F2D 35mm Film to Digital Image Converter
Wolverine F2D 35mm film to digital image converter was thoroughly analyzed and the experience gained with the exposure prompted me to draw some conclusion as follows:
The negative images lack desired quality. Using photo CD images from a local big bulls-eyes store are not impressive as they are grittier when compared some scanned images and prints. The images off the Wolverine F2D came out excessively exposed with low contrast and muted colors when attempted to convert. They also looked to be grittier. It did not require putting in much effort while playing around with Adobe Photoshop (Elements), since it needed to test this scanner essentially after installing Light room. There is a brush included which is meant to be used to clean the glass post in every set of scans. Though it seemed to work there is nothing unique about this product.
Thousands of old family slides could be scanned by this device. The scans are not up to the mark, though it is claimed as fast scans and need not require to be attached to a PC, laptop etc. Much of the image details were lost in the scan as the scan stuff is very dark and could not be fixed in Photoshop.
When scanning the photos of a toddler sitting in front of a couch, the couch rendered a big dark blob appearance behind him, though the toddler was wearing bright colors and his clothes were fine. But when looked at the slide in a slide viewer, these details of designs in the couch fabric and the bright clothing were all could be seen clearly.
This makes the point clear that the scan did no show, what it should have. It would be better to invest a little more and purchase a superior product than to go for this. This could be a fair choice for those looking for a cheap way to digitize film slides or negatives. It is simple to use and it works. When the results are being viewed in the monitor, while scanning a few negatives, it can be found instantaneously that it is a standalone, fast and user friendly.
One cannot get an excellent film slide scanner for the price of this. Yet Wolverine F2D gives complete job of saving images, which otherwise would slip into forgetfulness over the passing time. These scans are not certainly up to the mark nor are they adequately super imposed. It is doubtful if they are capable of preserving the details in those old images. But unless one spends lot of money for better equipment it may not be possible. This tiny device is pretty good to do the job anyway. Making some fundamental adjustments with Photoshop to get satisfactory results, it is possible to get scanned images as desired. If that is what is being sought after this may be a compact reasonably good device to utilize to get results.
