    This tape is incredibly useful in the studio and in my camera bag. It's very, very strong, but easy to remove without leaving any residue. Note that you need scissors or a knife to cut it with, though. I use it for taping gels to my speedlight and for taping in the studio as well. Very handy!

    Bought this to cover up embarassing product logos on camera gear, so as to be more discreet in public. I found the adhesive is not sticky enough, as when placed on nylon bags, it doesn't stay adhered.

    I wish the color was darker...closer to 18% grey...it is more like a light "cloud" grey.

      I use it to put up paper backdrops as I really don't like background stands. Just use common sense and be careful of the painted surfaces you put it on. Works great though!

      This is the tape one uses to hold things together, tie things down, anchor, support, and gerenally save lives of photographers without making enemies. No residue! It will pull off paint, however, so be careful.

          Gaffer is the best addition to any camera bag!! It's uses are endless. The fact it doesn't "gum up" on stuff when you remove it makes it perfect for so many situations.

          Past trip to Africa I wanted to cover the Canon logo and 300mm 2.8 logo on my lens case just to help discourage theft or curiosity when carrying it around. A couple strips of grey gaffer blended in perfect and removed some worry of people knowing how much money I was really carrying around.

                      I use this tape for taping cables to the floor and taping various things together. It's good, strong tape that rips off the roll easily and cleanly, sticks well, and peels off with no residue.

                        I had never used gaffer tape before. This is good stuff. It releases without leaving residue on what you had it stuck to. I of course have not tested it on all surfaces, temperatures or long term, but I think it will be a very useful purchase.
                        I have wrote on it with sharpie markers, photo markers, ball point ink pens and even pencil.
                        seems to work well.

                            Perfect little roll for my camera bag. All my shooting is on the road so it's nice to have a compact roll of gaff tape instead of hauling the usual 60yd roll around.

There to hold you and your things when you need him. Completely gone when you don't. Never sticky. Never leaves a residue. Thank you B&H for inviting me to write a love letter about my Gaffer Tape.

                                Used product to secure two 12x12 mirrors for studio bounce light. Stuff works without leaving much residue. I do wish the roll was a little larger for the price.
