    haha I'll be indulgent today...

    Gaffer's tape is "high end masking tape". Its cloth backed, adheres well but does not leave a sticky residue when removed, unlike the black electrical tape (which holds a certain armed forces together )

    Some people tape it to their camera bodies cos they like the grip it provides... its really a personal preference. It also helps to "cushion" the body from scratches and knocks.

    It also a way to zhng your lens... you know with the camo gaffer tape on the 70-200 etc.

    Is it possible to buy Gaffer tape in Singapore? I'm looking for black gaffer.
    I tried cathay and TCW but they don't carry any.

    Thanks
