Also available in blue only (BG5X7BDISC). Comes in a handy zippered carry bag. It folds to about 34" diameter.

Add a light stand, and disc holder for control and support of this collapsible background.

    Works great for keying simple standups. I use it in a small studio environment and have appreciated its storability. The few downsides:

    - I have a really difficult time folding this. I'm used to a standard Flex-Fill, and this has an extra move or two to get it folded.
    - Even folded, it's still a little bulky. It has to be checked on its own for travel- won't fit into any size Pelican or similar road case that I know of.
    - Gets wrinkled with travel. Needs a good ironing now and then.

    That being said, for the price and portability, this is a great solution.

    Green and blue screen work great and so far seems to be resistant to wrinkles. I would give it 5 stars if I didn't have to wrestle it back into it's case. The included folding instructions are useless. If working outdoors, use 2 good stands and sandbags. The velcro straps are helpful, but could use a couple more in the middle to pull it real tight.

      Comments about Photoflex Flexdrop Reversible Chromakey Blue/Green - 5x7':

      I use to do a lot of chroma key in studio but now the nature has changed to
      do keying outside of studio, so I had to pick one suitable for traveling and
      I found this one and just like everyone els wasn't sure if it was easy to fold it back in the bag and I have some news for you all: IT is very easy to fold it, the
      trick is when you are trying to fold it, you need to hold the frame in your hands firmly so as you trying to fold it the frame will force itself out of your grip but if you hold the frame as you fold it in firmly, you do not need any further act because it should fold by itself as I have discovered.very neat.

            With a quick forming steel spring frame, the non-light transmitting foam backing, and non-reflective material which eliminates green spill onto your subject, I couldn't be happier with this item. Pulling perfect keys in Premiere is a cinch. I tend to position it in landscape mode to accomodate the shape of widescreen HD video. We mostly produce in-house video interviews. The folding of the frame really requires three minor steps once familiar with it.

              For the money, extremely well made and a nice size for portable video shoots/interviews, etc. It is a bit difficult to fold back up, but there is a video on the manufacturer's site that is helpful. Make sure you practise folding it up before going out on a gig.

              I bought this as part of my traveling studio. Unfortunately it doesn't pack as small as I had wished. No fault of the backdrop... I'll probably keep it for quick use around the office but will end up having to get something that packs smaller.

                  Used many such screens - this is my new location favorite. Better than cloth as it is naturally taught (no sandbags needed!). Loops all around are lifesavers. Great product. Wish it collapsed smaller [...]

                    I am using this green green screen in my classroom to teach my students about chroma key effects. It works great and is easy to fold and store when not in use. The Velcro straps come in handy for attaching to the stand I made using PVC pipe. It stands fine when leanings against a wall but I have very little wall space in my classroom for set up so I decided to use a stand. The screen has few wrinkles that are easily eliminated with the right lighting. I would certainly buy this product again!

                            I did a lot of research on portable chroma key screens and FlexDrop won. [...] It's lighter than I expected and easy to set up. I even made my own stand for it and it hung perfectly. Some backlight shines through but lighting easily drowns it. Perhaps best of all, I was able to fold and put it back in its included bag first time with the helpful printed instructions. The border is stitched on so it appears stronger than other screens I've seen and the velcro hanging loops are bombproof.

                            I find this product quite amazing! I was expecting a cheap green screen pop out, you know? the kind that has wrinkled green, and can see through it? We'll with this bad boy, I got something I DIDNT expect, and that was quality!This puppy I compare with TubeTapes and Digital Juices chromapops! I LOVE the white edges and the loops stitched onto them, great great great! Most standard 5x7 pop out green screens run around $80, just dish out $50 more dollars and get this, you'll thank yourself later!!

                                Quality construction like all Photoflex stuff
                                It really is easy to fold if you let it do it's thing...
                                Knockouts are faster, pays for itself in post-production
                                time savings.

                                  We use this backdrop to make short videos demonstrating facial exercises ... about 28 videos in all ... less than 3 minutes, each and this back drop has been perfect for this use. It's portability allows us to store it conveniently making set-up a snap. It is easy to hang behind the person being filmed so we can put any background we want into the final product. Love that we have the choice of both blue and green, too. The price also makes this a great bargain. I highly recommend this product!

                                  Easy to unfold and use. A little testy when folding for storage in bag.
                                  Setup needs a frame rather than a arm to hold backdrop properly.
                                  Lights evenly. Great for CU & MCU shots. Nice having both colors for easy keying depending client's clothing choices.
                                  Gets a thumbs up.

                                  Screen opens quickly and provides nice clean key. If you watch the video you will be able to close it up easy enough by yourself. I don't understand why some people think it's so hard. They show you how and it takes a minute to get it but it's really not a big deal. I use the background for photography and video and it's a great chromakey bg at a good price.[...] I would recommend thus to anyone who needs a chromakey BG.

                                    I will probably use it indoors. 35 sq feet, is enough to sail a small boat so it needs decent support. Also, this will not lean up against a wall very well, kind of like a drunk snake. But, properly setup, you're in business. The cloth has almost no reflection. This is a quality item. Search the web,learn to fold it. Treat it fairly, plan your setups and you will be pleased.

                                      I like that it's easily portable (but, folds large... need to put in suitcase and ia not a carry on size, if traveling) ... it seems durable (more durable than I thought) ... love the green/blue (which makes the material thicker more durable, imho) ... and after 10 trys I actually started getting used to folding it back lol.
