Ethics and Definition of "Short Dated" Film
I usually buy film from the usual outlets (Adorama, Freestyle, Maco, B&H) but I was in a crunch and sourced film from a different retailer and when it arrived today the box had an expiration date of 11/2013. It was a box of TMAX 100. This film was sold as new. There was no indication that it was short dated. Does an expiration date 5 months out qualify as short dated? Should this be indicated in the advertisement? I freeze everything and I will probably use all that film by then but I have my reservations about giving those people any more of my business. Am I being uptight?
