      I'm amazed at the quality of this background. The fabric is thick with a nice mottled color scheme. It pops up with nary a wrinkle. Folding it up takes a little practice, but it's definitely do-able. I purchased the Lastolite stand to go with it, which works well. You could lean the backdrop against a wall, as well, and it includes a fabric loop on one end so hanging it from something would also work.

      I was a little hesitant about the blue colors when ordering, as they looked a bit bright in the photo, but they have a softer look in person and will compliment skin tones beautifully.

      I had originally purchased the 6x7 version of this with the train. It was enormous - it actually measured 6x9 1/2 feet! It was definitely more of a challenge to maneuver, as well. As always, the customer service department at B&H was super helpful, and while they couldn't explain why the size was off they cheerfully exchanged the behemoth for this 5x6 version.

      You can order this product with confidence.

        Comments about Lastolite 5x6' Collapsible Background - Florida/Maine:

        I use this product for legal videography.

        After grumbling about the setup, teardown, and space that standard backdrops with their hardware and fabric that needs to be ironed, I finally broke down and tried a Lastolite. Not only did I cut down on gear I have to transport to depositions, but in most scenarios, I find that I can lean it up against a wall, and due to it's solid construction, it can stand up on its own without any mounting. I chose the color because black and grey tends to wash my witnesses out.

        Folding it back up took some practice, but just youtube it and you'll get the hang of it.

        10/10

        Once I learned how to fold it quickly, no problems with this background. Looks good in photos as well. I've used it on a stand and by just leaning it up against a wall. Good quality, the fabric stays pretty much wrinkle-fee. My trick to folding it: hold it long ways in front of you (resting the far end on the floor) then act like your about to fold it in 1/2 long ways, it'll flip and start folding up.

        I use the Lastolite for individual portraits and groups of four or fewer people. Very easy to set up, but much more difficult to master folding it up! The two sides make it very versatile. Love the fact I don't have to deal with wrinkles like I do with muslin backdrops! Works perfectly w/ recommended stand. Online videos on how to fold up Lastolite were lifesavers!

          This backdrop is made of quality material. Even the case is high quality. You pay more but you get more with this brand. I needed to watch the video to learn how to fold it. But other than that pretty simple to use. The material still has wrinkles when open but they were not noticeable in the shot. I had the sun behind one shot and some of the pole behind the backdrop had shown through. Just repositioned and it was gone. This was a good size for a couples portrait. Probably could have fit one more person confortably. I would spend the money again.

            I've used this background twice and it's great. Once it's open I can lean it against a muslin background (for quick change) or hang on a lightstand with super clamp. Love the colors and the knit fabric stretches so it doesn't show wrinkles. I had someone help me close it the first time but it was pretty easy to do. The trick was figuring out which direction it wanted to twist (just like a sunscreen).

                I tried to save money by going with Botero but returned it for a Lasolite because Botero was so poorly made.

                Quality fabric doesn't show creases,painted with a subtle natural soft pattern and comes durable carrying case.

                I use it for video depositions where I needed a compact background for quick setup in cramped conference rooms. Gives enough coverage for head and shoulder shots.

                          This ended up my most used pop-up background for people photography. Blue is just the perfect colour for people, and I find myself using my grey pop-up only for certain occasions where the more subdued colour is more appropriate.

                          Both my collapsible backgrounds are from Lastolite, and the quality is great! Not only the rim, but the actual material that makes up the background is top-notch. You really do get what you pay for!

                              Okay, so I bought a "blue" background a bit reluctantly as I am opposed to the boring traditional headshot but the deep blue of Maine has a great "pop". The fabric is thick enough and has a nice dull surface. Once you figure out how to close this sucker you will be delighted at how fast you can frisbee it into the car and go! Handy dandy and useful too!

                              I used the darker side of this background for school portraits(grades K-11). Parents really liked the color. The material is also very nice. I plan to use the lighter side for school portraits next year, as it is also a very nice shade. The background folds up easily.
