    Do I need to go down into a dark cellar to load this film in a camera? (pretty iffy in a Leica M with the fast loading system ...) :smile:

    I wonder, because I have heard of possible light piping due to the PET base material.

    Or is it just that I need to be a bit more careful with shading the film when loading?

    I have shot quite a few rolls ( both 135 and 120 size ) and have only kept the film out of direct sunlight. So far no problems.

    Thanks, Karl-Gustaf!

    Then I'll cut and load some into the old Leica IIIb ... all good! :smile:
