Sure -- this is a relatively low resolution scanner that was used for years by people who wanted to put their negs and slides onto VCR's and TV monitors. If they're still available, B&H sells them. While it eliminates a trip through the enlarger, it replaces it with a trip through the Fotovix, so I don't think you save on neg wear and tear that way. It's a quick way to see what's on the neg, though, so it was fairly popular (if a bit pricy). david - Please do not include an entire message in your response.
