MZ-M and CineStill 800T

Hello,

I am about to get a roll of CineStill 800T for a test, and I plan to use it in a MZ-M. However their website said:

QuoteQuote:
CineStill 800Tungsten is extremely sensitive to light leaks! Be sure your camera's light seals are in good condition and if you have a film check window on the back door of your camera it would be a safe idea to tape it off.
The light seals of my MZ-M seems to be in excellent condition. Does anyone have experience and could tell me whether I should tape the film window of my MZ-M? And does this caution apply to other high-speed films like Portra 800?

Sincerely

I have not mastered CineStill film. I have a bunch of roles of varying ISO in the fridge. Good pictures out there have an interesting look to them, but I've decided to be a bit more picky before I use it. Right conditions, right light kinda thing.

High speed films are indeed much more sensitive to light seals, but I've never heard another film manufacturer recommend taping the film window.

I've shot 800T on an M2 and had no issues with light leaks

I've used it on an MZ-S with no issues, but I guess it's possible that it was because my "light seals are in good condition".

I've used Fiji Press 800 with my MZ-M without any problems.
