    Well, the difference is that gaffer tape can withstand higher temperatures (use on studio lights). Also they do not leave a very sticky residue when left on the camera equipment for a very long period, say > 6 months. Cloth tape will tend to remove any letterings and stuff on your lens/body if you forget to change it for that long a period.

    Else not much different if you change it like once every month. In fact, cloth tape won't be as sticky then.
