    dont forget to put gaffer tape on the front your lens to prevent scratches.. and the lcd.. and the viewfinder....


    oh yah... nearly forgot.. if you are using a film camera, put the gaffer tape on the negatives of the film.. sure no damage..

    Can also use gaffer to gaffer places where you want better grip... ( if your body doen't already have a confortable good one...)

    I've seen ppl gaffer the whole 10D... I mean almost every inch of it is gaffer, pretty useful when you are going for field trip...
