Suggestion: for ease of scanning something small or clumsy, like a newspaper clipping that wants to curl up, I've found that putting a piece of clear plastic (like those used as desktop calendar protectors) over the target item works great, just run the scanner right over the plastic; no distortion or reflection.
- Light weight.
- Smooth scanning.
- Great images.
- Every scan, as in EVERY scan, needs to be cropped to eliminate the surface being in the scanned image.
There are other scanners out there with the same performance for a lower price, but what sold me on the PASS200 is that it has a dual-roller set-up, which facilitates smooth scanning on a wide variety of surfaces. I have not had a single document slide or skip on me, nor have I had a bad scan from an imperfect surface. This isn't critical to someone scanning things on their dinner table, but for someone that works in the field, the dual-roller set-up is a godsend.
I purchased this scanner to scan records and documents when my dad fell ill and required admission to a long-term nursing facility. I was spending a lot of time between my house and his, so lugging my all-in-one printer was not an option... nor was the flatbed scanner I realized was broken at the worst possible moment.
While the main reason I purchased this was to scan documents and medical records, I soon discovered that it creates color scans with beautiful resolution, even in "low quality" mode! At 300dpi, it trumps the quality my old Canon flatbed scanner produced at much higher resolution. This was a great surprise considering my job requires frequent photo scanning.
The portability of the PASS200 is great: I carry it in my office bag with my Nikon DSLR, ZOOM recorder, lenses, and laptop. With ten pounds of gear, I'm carrying everything I need to cover any situation that comes up in the field when I'm working. The PASS200 adds very little to that kit, and with Eneloop batteries and a GoalZero Nomad solar panel, I've always got juice to get what I need no matter where I'm at.
Now if they only offered it in a more subdued color.
I'll keep using it, and if I obtain better scans will adjust my rating. But for now, I only give it a three-star rating.
The Scanner will never get lost! Its vibrant green color assures that! The image quality is good in all settings, and the storage to SD card means it's self contained, and simple to pull out and use, no fuss.It does eat batteries, but this trade off for simplicity and portability is worth it.
Scanning some books is difficult, as the rollers often fall off the page causing a poor scan, but usually not a problem with magazines or periodicals.
Overall a solid value so long as your expectations aren't too high.
This works pretty well. The quality of the images is good. I kind of wish I could scan to a PDF though so I could search through text. The main problem I run into is that the wand has like an inch of casing on the end where there is no scanner. So when I'm scanning from books and want a full page it is not easy to manipulate. The scanner has to be really flat against a page to do a good job so you can't just run it across the inside spine of a book like the picture shows. So it works best if you want just part of a page, your book has wide margins, or you can lay something flat (like, tear out a magazine page). Which kiiind of defeats the purpose of a wand vs a flatbed scanner, but is more useful than a sheet-fed scanner. The price is good, though, and I do like the portability, so I'd buy this again.
I’m a musician and often need/want copies of pieces and scores to store on my iPad. I don’t require high-end resolution perfection, and if I did, there is no hand-held scanner appropriate for that end. Combined with Adobe Acrobat, the end product is perfect for my purposes.
The Wolverine’s double roller makes it easy to keep a straight scan and the device is very intuitive with its function commands. As noted by others, it eats batteries quickly and tends to freeze up as battery life gets low. But considering the price of the Wolverine, the supply cost for double A batteries is a fair trade.
