Use your laptop for a tracing backlight.
Authored by: Notgruntled on Feb 18, '12 12:09:47PM

I've used an LCD monitor (not on a laptop) as a light table for negatives; open a blank browser window in full-screen, shoot with a digital camera, and invert in Photoshop. The quality is not good, but it's sufficient for a contact sheet of large-format negatives so you can decide which ones you want to pay to have scanned.
