Rosco 851422212450 Overview

  • 1Description

Rosco's 1" x 164' Black Gaffer Tape is an industry staple. As anyone in the business will tell you, gaffer tape is something most photographers can't live without. This quality tape is manufactured from a premium cotton substrate coated with a heavy-duty vinyl. The tape exhibits a high tack which is what you want when you're trying to position lights, marking floor spots or securing cables. The last thing you want on a job is to have someone trip over a loose wire that was supposed to be held down but was carelessly held by an inferior piece of tape. To that end, Rosco tape features superb adhesion - and it doesn't leave a sticky residue when removed.  

This is a non-reflective tape that is very easy to work with since it tears clean. Whether you are a working pro or rank amateur, a roll of this should be in every gear bag.

When you're on a job and something needs to be held firm, re-fastened or temporarily positioned, gaffer tape is the staple that photographers in-the-know turn to. Even if you don't want to carry around an entire roll, tear some off and wrap it around the leg of your tripod. It's a simple way to have it handy when you need it.

Gaffer Tape (1" x 164', Black ) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 23.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great. I always make sure to have some of this color for camera tape (in addition to black)...with the idea that if it's used as a mark and the shot gets changed in a hurry and it accidentally shows up in can act as green screen and be easier to key out. Fluorescent is great too when you run out of tennis balls on the ends of gobo heads and need to get the end of it noticed so it is less likely to hit someone in the face.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from if you want it to stand out then this is I love the bright orange color. its great for marking off back stage walk area or marking a black cable line for safty reasons. I used it on an outside job were we had a black power line running on the ground and i marked with this orange tape and you could see it every where you went, also used it to mark out a walk way behind the stage. I only wish it came in a 1/2 version for strike on stage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Photographer? If so this is a must! Cost is cheap quality matches the overpriced versions hands down. Want to tape something to a strobe or patch a tear in a soft box? This will do it with out leaving residue and it holds like duck tape. Don't want to carry the roll with you? Just put a couple strips on your gear and peal it off and use it when needed. It can be peeled off and re applied several times.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rosco for the win! I have tried other tapes, and the paper/fabric/adhesive is always off. But Rosco tapes hold you to whatever I can throw at it. The pink, for me, is lovely because I can identify my gear and see my taped areas in the dark. I also use black when I want to make sure I don't have any color casts. This is a mandatory part of my photo kit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gets the job done This white tape is useful for a variety of purposes. I most often use it to tape down microphone cables, especially when attaching them to white objects, so that it will be less obtrusive. The tape tears easily, holds firmly, and will not leave any sticky residue, as long as its removed within a couple of days.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works as promised I used this tape to secure my camera/tripod to a table for my DYI photo booth at my wedding reception a few weeks ago. The tape was easy to tear and left no residue. The tape comes in a plastic bag and has a very strong odor once opened, but this will go away if you let it air out a while.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gaffers tape Why is tis stuff so hard to find locally? No other tape works as well for photographis applications. I will now automatically add a roll of red or black to every B&H order!Maybe they should sell it by the case? Oh yeah, did they mention it's opaque?!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product We use this gaffer tape for fencing (foils). Foil tips must be taped to keep them from accidental grounding. This tape is a great color and stands up well to the rigors of fencing, and also comes off easily with no residue. Touche!
