    Do you already have a Speedlite(s)?

    Your order looks okay to me.

    I was looking online at other places but since I just wanted a small roll to keep in the bag that worked for me. I will probably get a big roll from somewhere else to keep at home.

    The gaffer tape is horribly overpriced. If you want a small roll of it, simply peel some off and wrap it around a 35mm film cannister-it re-sticks quite well.
    That's one of the things it's designed to do,in fact.

    Honestly, when you come right down to it, I have found that the newer, blue-colored masking tape has found a place more and more over traditional gaffer's tape--it has about the same adhesion quality, comes off just as well, and holds things in place about as well, for a fraction of the cost.

    Does brand make much of difference with the tape or is it all pretty much equally good.


    Other than the tape being expensive is there anything I am missing with that order?

    I'm not familar with gaffers tape prices, but is $4.99 for a 1"x8yd roll really overpriced?

    LOL! Now I see it... It's the way they're bunched together like paragraphs that threw me off:

    $29.99 $29.99
    Nano Roll 1"x8yd Gaffer Tape - Black
    Item #: VDP2000

    Looks like the cost of the tape is $29.99 for a 1"x8yd roll. :lol:

    It's still too much though, as dataz722 just showed.
