Totally do not see any reason to gaffer my DSLR unless the purpose is to cover the brand. I have used my DSLR and brought it to many places and still it does not even have a scratch on it. At the most, I place a LCD protector, but I dun think the LCD scratches at all. I know cos my LCD protector does not protect the entire screen. I dun think u need to go to town too much about "protecting" ur DSLR.
People asking who have pictures of gaffered cams and out came kpo people lecturing why why why. Got pic show, no pic than what business is it to anyone if TS wants to gaffer his own cam or even the whole car?
It's not that i favour chrome to black but the tape has matte surface which improve the grip a lot for me since i have small hand and weak grip, and a shinning things from afar is more easier to spot for snatch thief in countries i go to.
But i tape it mainly for improve grip and avoid snatch thief cause my friend told me she can see my silver camera from so far and it attract a lot attention of people , plus it reflect when i shoot through windows, more worry about knock than scratch through , and scratch the lens more worry.
The apollo tape work not bad, through a bit hard to cut.
