Industry Tape. Zero Residue Gaff and Camera Tape.


Don't Let This Happen To You.

The above picture of a bad tape job on the handle of a Sony F3 shows how easily cheap tape can ruin camera equipment. The handle will be a little sticky forever. Right after posting that photo on Twitter. I was handed a roll of this killer new Gaff tape by Industry Tape. They claim that there is “Zero Residue”. This would be a huge plus. The roll that I got works like a charm. I left it on my laptop overnight and there is no residue. It also appears to be very strong. I would feel pretty good about using it as a backup safety harness for mounted camera systems. Industry Tape is comparable in price to regular Gaff tape and will make a great addition to any kit. Here is a rip from the Industry Tape website. Click here to check it out.

About two years ago a new Canon camera changed the way the world sees both motion and still photography. He just happened to be in the right place at the right time.

    Have some reside on my tripod legs from years past, this would be great. Except I think you’ve gotta leave the tape on something for a couple of months, through heat and cold, etc. to see if it’s truly “zero residue.” One way to find out I guess!

    I could’ve used some this weekend. Needed to tape down a monitor and now have gaff residue all over my mounting bracket.
