The next best thing for any photographer will be the multi-purpose gaffer tapes. The popularity of the tape was due to that it will not leave any residue when removed. Thus these are normally used for gaffering studio lights wires to the floor to prevent tripping. Pack a small roll in the camera bag and you will never know when you need it.

One of the most popular usage is gaffering own photography equipments like camera bodies, lenses, speedlight and tripod. Not only it will protect against scatches, it can even improve the holding grip. They even comes in various camou colors and also carbon fiber for more fun and uniqueness! 

However as sweat and dirt will be consolidating on the surface after prolong usage, it is still advisable to change the tape every few months.
