Duct tape can often be a photographer’s best friend. Cable management can often be a nightmare. The two don’t naturally combine very well though, since duct tape can leave sticky reside on your cords after its removed.
If you ever need to wrap up cables and don’t have any twist- or zip-ties on hand, here’s how you can use duct tape to wrap cables without the cables getting sticky.
The title sort of says it all doesn’t it? The cool, slightly nauseating video above is the result of a fun little experiment: what would happen if you duct tape a GoPro to your car tire and go for a drive. And we do mean duct tape. Video creator Ryan Fox didn’t use any kind of special mount… just some tape and a prayer.

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.

Instructables member Nano_Burger posted a series of photos showing how he did this with a cheap film camera.
