Re: Scanning medium and large format negatives - film holder?

I have used a similar setup. And I have used negative carriers from old enlargers. I have seen them on ebay. Most seem overpriced since there is so little demand for enlargers. But still, most are under $50.

The link below shows the setup I have used. You could substitute a tripod or a copy stand for the enlarger column. With a tripod you will have to work at getting the camera sensor parallel to the negative or slide.  The old D2x has enough resolution for 35mm but your D750 would be better for medium and large format, for those I have used my D800.  By the way, not shown on the website are two 4X5 omega carriers., one with glass and one without.  The one with glass holds the negatives flat and works for odd size negatives for which I do not have a carrier.
