Camouflage Your Camera with Duct Tape

If you want to make your camera stealthy for whatever reason (maybe wildlife photography?), there’s special camouflage-patterned bags or cases you can buy to put your camera in. Those can be pricey though, and an easier do-it-yourself solution is to simply tape up your camera with some camouflage duct tape. Instructables member Nano_Burger posted a series of photos showing how he did this with a cheap film camera.

    I don’t know about this. I would afraid that if I put the camera down outside, I might not be able to find it. I have a hard enough time remembering where I left things without making it harder.

    Why camo the flash? It isn’t exactly stealthy when in use…

    There goes the resale value…

    I’d be worried about doing this….

    duct tape leaves a sticky residue when taken off. It’s very hard to get off. There goes the value. :/

    Try camo Coban (non adhesive medical tape) available in off brands for about $10 and won’t goo up your camera.
