Pro-Gaff 2-Inch Black Gaffer's Tape

Pro-Gaff Gaffer's Tape

The Only Gaffer's Tape I Use

I've been using Pro Tapes for nearly 20 years and have never once been let down.

I always have at least one roll of this with me on production days.

The black 2" x 55 yard roll is the standard, but you can also get it in different sizes and colors.

"Hold My Tape." - Gaffer's Last Words

It's a 15" piece of steel cable with loops at each end and a carabiner, pretty simple.

Keep rolls of tape, tools, or other small items handy.

And it can double as a counterweight.

Zeiss Lens Cleaning Kit

Zeiss Lens Cleaning Kit

Cleanliness = Awesomeness

It's easy to get the pre-packaged lens wipes and call it done. However, I firmly believe the brush and blower in this kit are far more necessary in everyday situations. Combatting dust and dirt is usually more common than smudges and smears.
