    Wolverine Data SNAP20 reviews

    SNAP20 Digital Image Converter is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 39.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does a great job for only $150 I was pleasantly surprised at what a good job it does for only $$! I converted hundreds of color slides, color negs, B&W negs, color photos, & B&W photos. If you let it do an automatic conversion, it only takes a few seconds. You can make some minor adjustments to contrast and color balance. There are a few drawbacks that keep me from giving it 5 stars (1) Anytime you make an adjustment to to exposure settings or picture size, it stays that way until you reset it. (2) It does a poor job on dark color slides. (3) The slide & negative trays are a bit difficult to open. However after I used them many times, they became easier to use.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's a So Glad I Bought This! purchase I purchased the SNAP20 to digitize 1000s of pictures that my parents and I had. Using it was quick and easy, with good quality for our snaphots. There is a two step process once you see the image that you want on the included color preview screen. First CONVERT, then SAVE. When I figured out that you could change to the next picture during the 3 second SAVE, it really went fast. The SNAP20 handled the many different sizes I had to convert...up to 5x7, including slides. I liked that with a memory card, you don't have to be attached to a computer and can then upload the pictures to a computer or other storage device all at once.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wolverine SNAP20 Digital Image Converter The image converter works very well. The resolution is high, and the controls of brightness and color have a good range. I have used it for very old slides, and have been able to correct the digital versions in Photoshop to produce satisfactory images in most cases. I had a problem with dirt in the optical system with the first unit I received. The Wolverine tech support was extremely helpful in suggesting possible steps I could take, and when these failed, they replaced the unit. The new unit has no apparent problems.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the job very well I have over 2000 35mm slides that I need to convert. After reading many product descriptions and user reviews I choose this model for cost and features. I have been very pleased with the results. It is able to convert 98% of my slides. It is not able to convert slides that are very dark (which are bad photos anyways) or the ones that have extreme contrast i.e. White Wedding gown/dress with black void background. No matter how I adjust the Exposure Value or adjust the jpeg with photoshop or another photo program the converted file is just to dark to work with. But other then that I think this is well worth it. Very easy to use. At this time I have about 350 slides converted.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Save your money After reading all the mixed reviews on this item, I purchased it. After using it for 2 days, I returned it. The product gets 3 stars because it does what it advertises 100%. It scans negatives and various size photos and includes all the accessories you need to do that efficiently. My biggest problem is that the resolution on the scans are not very high quality. I played with all the correcting settings which are really just contrast and RGB color adjustment and it never improved the quality. I wanted this product to be as awesome as it sounds when you read the product description, but it just ain't gonna happen. The lesson I learned is that you need to pay for the high quality scans from the developing or scanning services.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for the price! This scanner is easy to use and quick enough, so frustration isn't an option. the nice little lcd gives you a preview of your scans, but trying to manually color balance is a hassle so it helps to have some kind of basic editing program to fix up your colors. the flatbed scanner isn't too impressive, i've had better scans from flatbed scanners on printers and will probably only use this flatbed if i'm not in reach of my normal printer. there's a lack of sharpness. the build of the scanner is great, but plastic none the less!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a product worth the money I have already scanned over 850 pictures from so many generations of cameras in less than 1 week, polaroids SLR's & my own slides that I developed years ago (all types of films). Negatives of all sizes to the most current. I have tried other products but this is so true to life for me I can tell you, you won't be displeased. Like anything you need to set up test parameters like using a samller template 5x7 even though you are doing a small polaroid to move it around on the glass. Do your post editing later. I didn't care if it was off color I use many other programs that can correct off hue. Best choice is to get template close to the size you need. Only regret is the underside of the glass seems to have many particles that come from nowhere, it is not opened. Also wished is could remember some of the settings that I use more often

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bought it, tried it, returned it I had about 250 slides from a trip I did 20 years ago and I wanted to digitize them for internet use. I read lots of reviews for different affordable consumer scanners, and this unit seemed to have good feedback. I ordered it, it arrived, I tried it out, and I was instantly deflated at how muddy and grainy the slide scans were (as compared to the original slide itself which is beautiful). I tried 5 different slides and all were not pretty to look at. I then tried the photo scanner. It's okay, but when I scanned the same photo with my older flatbed Canoscan LIDE 100, the flatbed scanner blows the Wolverine away in terms of detail. I packaged everything back up nicely and returned the unit. There was no point in scanning all those slides if they were going to look terrible and then I would be stuck with another piece of equipment I'll never use again. I'm going to use the old flatbed for photo scanning, and then pay a local company (who use high end scanners) to scan my slides. The cost to pay someone to scan the slides is only slightly more than the cost of the Wolverine unit, but the upside is I'll get much better scans and I won't have to store the Wolverine unit in my house (I would NEVER use it again and it will just be clutter). If you have 1000+ slides and you're not picky about details, then I suppose this Wolverine unit might be useful to you, just not me.
