It’s not difficult to find a film converter that can digitize your 35 mm slides and film; every converter we tested can handle this commonly found format. One of the features that sets this scanner apart from others is its ability to work with classic Super 8 film. The Titan’s scanner can also convert your APS, 110, 126 KPK and 127 negatives and slides. However, it lacks the ability to convert physical printed photos of any size.
In our tests, this converter was a cinch to set up and use, with clearly labeled buttons and easy-to-use plastic frames. You can quickly feed film and slides in through their respective slots at the bottom of the device, which are each marked accordingly. Once your film is loaded into the device, it then uses its built-in software interpolation, which can somewhat improve an image’s quality. The Titan’s 20 megapixels is the highest of any unit in our comparison and ensures the optimal possible digitization of your cherished memories.
The Titan is a standalone device, meaning it doesn’t need to be connected to a computer in order to run. Its convenient TV-out jack allows you to connect the device to a TV, if you want, to better view your newly digitized collection. Like the Wolverine F2D Mighty and the ION Film 2 SD, it also comes with a cleaning brush, which helps you get rid of dust or other particles or smudge that may be on your old film.
Measuring 4 x 5.5 x 3.5 inches, and weighing just half a pound, the Titan is small, portable and one of the lightest units we reviewed. It has an impressive 4.3-inch color display screen – the largest of any unit available on the market. Having a large screen makes it easy to preview, capture and edit your images as well as navigate the device’s menus. It can also handle SD cards with up to 32GB of storage.

The Titan converter ships with a one-year manufacturer warranty, and an instruction manual is included in the box.

With all of its features – and its massive media format compatibility – it’s easy to see why the Wolverine Titan is the best slide to digital converter we tested. If you have a collection of old film and slides you’ve been meaning to digitize, the Titan is your best bet. With its outstanding ease of use, large display screen and unbeatable resolution output, this slide converter is a smart option.
