I've been thinking about shooting some color slide film so I thought I would check ebay to see what is around. I found one retailer selling some that I was interested in. The description reads: You are bidding on 40 rolls of RDP III Provia 100F 120 professional medium format slide film.Dated 03/2007 Then below that it reads: FRESH DATED FILM - PERFECT QUALITY, PROFESSIONALLY COLD - STORED will be good at least a year beyond the exp. date! So I email them and ask to verify what the date is and this is the reply I got: Tha dating is 03/2007 but it fresh So now film that is 13 months old is fresh? Really? Glad they don't run a supermarket.
