    Great accessory to have for lighting. You can see in the attached still from a video how I achieved a pure black background with one light, a piece of foam board for reflector and black wrap around the light. This came out great and it was my first time trying to get a pure black background.

    Practical, but could be thicker

    Use this foil as improvised flags & gobo's. I had expected it to be thicker. It is adequate, but would be better if it wouldn't tear as easily.

      Comments about Gam Blackwrap - 12"x50' Roll:

      I used the blackwrap to focus light beams, blackout windows, and in the place of flags. I'm working on an extremely low budget, so it's nice to have a material that's so versatile and cost efficient, and B&H offers a great price. I would defenitely recommend this to anybody wondering what equipment should make the cut of a low budget project.

              I saved a couple dollars by going with this brand and it seems to be fine. The quality is the same as all the other brands on the market. This is a must have addition to any photographers kit. Great for making snoots or flags, etc.

                this is really good. ts thinner hin what I thought it would be but that didn't hinder its performance. I used it as a gobo a lot. If it was thicker cutting and ripping shapes out would have been difficult so like how thin it is. It blocks light just like I expected. there is nothing negative i can say about it.

                    I suppose it might be kind of difficult to screw up black aluminum foil. This stuff works really well and definitely can take a beating. I had a sheet of it wrapped over a 300 watt Britek light for hours to use as a makeshift cucoloris, worked like a charm. Never burned up or anything. Works as advertised!

                              I use Blackwrap as a flag or to make a snoot. It's brilliant: it works. You can make it whatever shape you need, and usually just fold it over whatever object to hold it in place; otherwise, a dab of gaffe tape does the job. What's not great about it? Well, it weighs a ton. But it's worth it.

                                Great stuff. Very versitile. I use it to gobo my flash gear and other lights. Also good to use as a flag for the lights. Easy to mold and holds it's shape very well. You know how you have a roll of gaffer's tape in your tool box just in case you need some? Well, it's the same with this stuff. You need to have it just in case you need some.

                                        The perfect solution for a quick fix gobo or flag when I shoot interior architectures. It is strong with good pliable thickness to stay in the shape I need to shape and focus the light where I need it.

                                          Great accessory to have for lighting. You can see in the attached still from a video how I achieved a pure black background with one light, a piece of foam board for reflector and black wrap around the light. This came out great and it was my first time trying to get a pure black background.

                                              This stuff is great for shaping light; making snoots and all kinds of other items, like cookies, or a fancy hat. Matte black is a good thing, too.

                                              It's heavy duty and like aluminum foil, it forms to whatever your crimping it on to. But it can be sharp, so use caution . . . or gloves.

                                              I made a cookie for a Tota frame and it works great. Save your pieces.

                                              Yay Blackwrap!

                                                    This item is under valued. It is far more durable than anticipated and can be used over and over with minimal waste if properly stored. Great product!

                                                    It might feel a little bit thinner than the last stuff I was using, but it bends like aluminum foil and blocks light. What more can I ask?

                                                        I learned of the existance of black wrap while attending the Center for Digital Imaging at Boston University. I found this product to be very useful for a variety of applications, most notably creating snoots.

                                                          Use this foil as improvised flags & gobo's. I had expected it to be thicker. It is adequate, but would be better if it wouldn't tear as easily.
