Does anyone know name of this 3-ring binder? Where can I find one? It looks light tight!
I recommend printfile.com for binders. Not sure what you mean by light tight.
Available at Amazon.com. Actually I think there are several variations that are quite similar. These are the ones I use and they have worked out well.
That's the same box that is available from Light Impressions (but perhaps a little cheaper).
Think very carefully before dealing with Light Impressions - http://www.apug.org/forums/forum46/83396-more-problems-light-impressions.html
The last posting in that thread is over a year and a half old. I had dealings with them years ago after they opened here in Rochester. I have had no current dealing with them. I see they still have a Rochester address, although at a different location. I guess my advantage is, if I need something I can probably visit them in person.
Archival Methods also has this sort of stuff, and they are also in Rochester.
Its name is jose jimenez.
Light Impressions is working out of Calif. and they are still a ripoff these days. A sorry end to a once wonderful company.
that type of negative holder is very common and others have given you several places they can be purchased
I have purchased these binders in the past, branded as Beseler.
Here it is. As others have noted it can be purchase from multiple sources. It isn't light tight, but of course it doesn't have to be.
Personally, I prefer this model as it will accomodate (barely) negative pages that hold 7 35mm strips of 6 exposures.
Both products work very well and you should be quite happy with them.
Or use standard cardboard office binders and prepare or adjust a cabinet/shelf with a back surface and a height between shelves to just accept the binder, thus masking the binder dust-free too.

LI may be under new ownership, hence the current Rochester NY address?
hard to say, as they started out there and perhaps went back.
None the less, I am still waiting for a refund for materials purchased never delivered, and in fact will never see the money. I among others reported them to the Attoney General of that city, but i don't think it helped any.
When I get a chance, I'll drive by their current location to see what's actually there.
Some people I talked to at the GEH told me that http://www.lumierephoto.com/ was formed by the original creator of LI. There is no connection.
I'm a big fan of print file, they even have an oversized binder for 6x6 35mm.The 35 6HB and binders with slip cases to keep dust out!
Adox offers such kind of box-binder made from folded Polyproylene (thus not really tight).
Separate names with a comma.
