It's kinda weird that it was a dream to have this camera some years ago when it was first launched.

and come to think of it, i've owned it for more then half a year already, shoot many many many great photos that i'm proud of...

Hi Stratix, what is that which you used to cover your 5D up? Looks like some black textured kind of tape?
For protection purpose?
Thank you in advance for enlightening me.

Yupe. Thanks bro. Got the idea.

This is very nice.. Looks very used and very professional!
And well, I guess the keyword here is 'used'. Being 'used' reduces the risk of bringing attention to the equipment itself. And of couse being 'used', people would be more inclined to think of one as less newbie... haha!

I do find it strange for people to tape up their camera like that? Why cover up it's beauty? Technically I see no diff in the price that you fetch between a camera tape up and one that is not. A used camera is a used camera no matter how taped up it is! May be you gain an extra $50 for the appearance, but you have also spend $50 on the tape and the time you spend to tape it.:think:

@Stratix, would you mind putting a pic of your full camera? Or would prefer not to reveal the total beauty? (Would like to see how it looks with the Gaffer tape on). Thanks! :)

a badly banged up camera is really less then $50 bucks off, singaporeans are really a cosmetic bunch.

and $50 roll of tape can really last a lifetime. i've been using it for my camera(s), laptop, phone, mouse, and many many many more!

Stratix, yeah, why don't you show us how to strategically gaffer tape up the camera? Show us pictures of your camera lah. Can?
I am thinking of doing it in a way more for protection purpose of those area that I know will always bang here and bang there.

Honestly, if I were to buy a camera from someone, I will choose to buy from a person that do not tape up his camera and yet the camera is not banged up, as compared to one that is tape up, as I feel that the person will treat the camera will less care when it is being taped up.

Also, most electronics gets outdated before they get disfigured through wear and tear. So why tape up your gadgets and letting in retire with superb looks, and you never get to show off/enjoy it's beauty?
