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 :bsmilie: )

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.

Dun think so, there was a part 9 to it... go check it out.

Btw, the ones from the MO are either Black or White. Any other colours available?? :dunno:
