    The trouble with chroma keying a subject, on top of getting it lit right and keying afterwords, is there is never enough screen to have a full body shot. Not with the Super Collapsible. You get a full 8 foot wide by at least 10 foot or more of height, plenty of material for the floor to get your subjects feet. And the best part is that it doesn't need a frame to hang it on, you generally can just lean it against a wall or use a light stand or c-stand to hold the entire screen. However it's basically one size, so you need a decent size room to put in. I once had to set up side ways so it would fit in the room. you can set it up yourself but it tends to collapse easy when lifted so it's a good idea to get someone to help you lift it up.
    The Super Collapsible is very well made and priced lower than collapsible screens half the size with no material for he feet. Folding takes a little practice to get it right but it very easy once you get the hang of it. It all fits in the included 3 foot bag included. A great product and a great price!

    I take this thing everywhere and it works great. However be careful folding it back up. I messed it up a few months ago and it's impossible to fix. Finally had to order a new one when the case finally gave away. Have had it a couple years though.

    Comments about Botero #026 Super Collapsible Background - 8x16' - Chroma-Key Green:

    I have used this product for about 2.5 years now. It has gone through thousands of youth sports shoots. Even several hockey leagues with kids wearing skates. It's durability amazes me. Not a single hole in the skirt area despite a substantial amount of abuse. We have also used this outside on countless shoots, in the rain, wind etc and it has held up great. If you use it outside it does get dirty and can be hard to clean. I must say, it was a headache learning to fold it up, but once I got the hang of it, it was pretty easy. Don't let anyone watch you fold it up while you are learning though! The wire frame can get twisted at times but always seems to straighten out on its own. So watch out for that. Oh yeah, and it keys up great. Just duct tape the skirt when you can... All in all this is a quality product.

      Comments about Botero #026 Super Collapsible Background - 8x16' - Chroma-Key Green:

      So far so good... I do not have a dedicated area to use this screen so I love the collapsible version because it's easy to fold up and store. Okay, easy to fold up once I watched the video a few times and practiced. I said "So far so good..." because I haven't had a photo session with it yet. It is quite large and will be perfect for future projects when I have a larger space. In the meantime, I'll use a smaller collapsible that I have. The material is high quality and I can see a steamer will be a great investment to smooth out the few wrinkles that are left once it is setup.

            Would have gotten 5 stars if it wasn't such a pain to fold. Easier for two people but a real challenge for 1.
            A little shiny but not too bad, if you light it well not a real issue. The wrinkles do show a bit.

            Needed a portable backdrop so it does fit the bill for that.

              I'd give it five stars if it wasn't such a trip to fold.
              Really is a good product. The train gives you plenty of room to seperate your subject from the background.
              Don't expect to "just" lean it against a wall though, your going to want to have a way to secure it so you can stretch the train to remove wrinkles.
              A little shinier than I thought it would be, but doesn't seem to be a problem if you light with soft boxes.

                Great bang for the buck! Its hard to believe this enormous screen fit in that little bag. Its even harder to believe it when you try to put it back in. There is definitely a trick to it. Like learning a secret handshake.

                You will need a way to support it. Like a large wall, 2 cstands, etc.

                    This background is great! I actually bought it more than 4 years ago and didn't end up using. It literally sat in storage for 4 years until this past week, when I needed it for a video I am working on. Not surprisingly, it was a little wrinkled, having been boxed up for so long. No problem. A warm iron fixed it right up. Nice, uniform screen. Place it against a wall, and you're all set.It is lightweight, so the fabric is obviously not very thick. But, with something not too reflective behind it, it should be fine. It is as difficult to fold as any collapsible item, except that the size makes it a two person job. One person can unpack it an wrestle it against a wall. Beyond that, it is a bit too cumbersome to handle for one person.

                      Used it for a hockey team portrait session this past weekend and it was great. Leaned it against the wall, the skates didn't bother the skirt at all, and as long as you light it up well, it's a breeze in post production. If you watch the video before you try to fold it up, you won't have any problems. It does wrinkle a bit because it is the Muslin type fabric, but I have no complaints about it.

                      Very easy to set up and large enough for full body shots. It's a bit flimsier than I expected, but well worth the money and portability. Hard to figure out how to put away. Definitely glad they make a video on how to fold it!

                              I wanted a large green screen so I could shoot multiple simultaneous individuals for interviews. If that was my need, this fits my need very, very well. However, it is a handful to open, use and get back in the soft carry case; you are going to need help. The material seems to be of quality as does the frame, but it's size does make it seem a bit flimsy and you will need a large wall which it can rest against or a backdrop support to which you can clamp it.

                                    I think that this is a really good answer to the big roll of paper that you can't hide in your apartment. Kind of joking about the raft but make sure that you have a lot of room before you take it out of the cover. It does a good job and it is a good size which is better because with a smaller screen the subject constantly goes out of the background, and you can't use it. Obviously the best thing is a green room, but if you can't paint your walls green, this is the next best thing. It is a bit difficult to hang it in an apartment but I finally hung it on two clips and light stands. I even got it back into the cover. It even will give you a few laughs along the way trying to do that.

                                    As a student using the canon t2i and wanting to do some green screen at home and really good greens creen, this Botero 8-16 does the job very well. I just tested it out with not the best lighting set up- and it was pretty nice so far, I am very pleased. What's great about it? It's size, it's big like half a room big but so if you're even new-ish to Greenscreen, this might be a bit of a stretch( litterally) in price.

                                      Purchased the backdrop to use onsite for various sports and portrait photo shoots. I have only used it once so far since it arrived two weeks ago and it worked as described. Very happy with the purchase so far. Does have some slight wrinkles but they don't seem to cause any problems with software removal. Only con is that the frame itself is very flimsy and takes two people to stand up. Once up though it did support itself leaning up against a wall with no trouble. Fold up was fairly easy as well considering the size of the backdrop.

                                      The product overall is good material. Be aware of the size. I have a studio with 10 ft ceilings and when I opened it, it consumed the whole room. Very difficult to fold up. Would be great to hand on a background stand, but too weak to open and stand on its own. I would not attempt to use on site anywhere only good product if you have a huge studio with a background stand to support it.

                                      I'm not going to lie - when I bought this I totally didn't think about 8x16' It worked out great for me however. I will say that the folding took me a few tries to get down and it didn't come with any thoughtful instruction. But Youtubed it and now can collapse it like magic!
