    So that my sweat can be absorbed by the gaffer tape and my camera will smell "manly".

    Seriously, I gaffer the buttons so that rain and dust wouldnt penetrate the buttons at the back.... at least gives me a piece of mind when using it in light rain. I wouldnt want to see a drop of rain disappear into any of the buttons.

    Curious...When you peel off tape on buttons, will the inscription on them come off as well? I'm considering taping my buttons.

    You are not the only one.

    I taped the gaffer tearing sound and duplicated it 100 times and transferred it to a MP3 player.

    Just looking for a suitable title of the piece of great sound. "The Never-ending Sound of Love"?

    Gafferers are actually a considerate lot of people for they take the pain to mummify to deny themselves the pleasure of the feel and touch of their precious equipment to preserve the pristine condition for the benefits of the future buyers.
