        Good Product, But Not Easy To Handle

        Comments about Lastolite 6x9' Chromakey Green Collapsible Background:

        Like most all Lastolite stuff, the background is a high quality piece with good material.

        I wanted the extra two feet over a 6 x 7 for shooting more than one person, but the extra size comes with a bit of a price. It is harder to handle and, in my experience, not quite as easy to fold down (at least for one person).

        It took me 15 minutes the first time I tried, and about 5 the second time. The method I used the first time did not seem to work the second time so I ended up trying a different approach and it did work.

        I found it helpful to watch a couple of YouTube videos that showed how to fold them. One of them used the technique I used the second time.

        One additional caveat. It's large enough that if you need to orient it horizontally it's not easy to raise it higher. Because of its size, simply resting the background on a couple of chairs to raise it up doesn't work well. Ended up using a background stand to hold it and raise it to the needed height. Much more stable and secure that way.

        The up side is that when it pops open, the small wrinkles do not seem to impact its use (in my case, mostly stills). That's easier than having to steam out wrinkles on a muslin cloth.

        Were it a bit easier to fold, I would have rated it 5 stars.

            Well constructed, spring steel frame pops open and hangs easily from attached straps - or use spring clamps in the metal frame. Frame stretches fabric smoothly. Comes with a heavy duty carrying case. Worth the extra money for professional dependability. Would purchase another.

                We have tested and used the screen for 2 shoots now and I am very happy with the results. Folding it up and getting it back in the bag is a bit challenging but setup and use is simple.

                Provides a perfectly even background for easy keying out in post. You will have to spend an hour self-training in putting the thing away thouhg. I have used chromakey paper, cloth, and now this. This is by far the most reliable solution. I hope they make an even bigger one.

                We've been using this screen for some commercial shoots and it's been excellent! Sets up easly, stretches nicely with minimal wrinkles. I would have given it 5 stars, but folding it back up is a bit tricky until you get the hang of it!
