      This lightweight screen is very easy to use and setup, and is bigger than you think it is... you can use it width-wise for wider shots or closer in and pan around your subject. Or you can set it up vertically, and it's taller than most people. I took one star off because it's not really 7'x5' (mine is about 6'6" tall and about 4'10" wide), but I don't see that as a huge issue. It was, as many have noted here, wrinkled right out of the package it shipped in, but I took the advice of a few others and bought myself a Conair compact fabric steamer for about $40 at [...] and all the wrinkles disappeared in about 15-20 minutes. I also bought the Impact boom stand. The only thing I didn't like about the stand, is the fact that it is designed with both clamps on the same side of the center post. Because of a stop on the opposite side of the mounting pole, you can't pull it through the center, and move one of the clamps to the other side. The drawback being that you have to hang your screen off to one side, and then try to counterbalance it (they sell an "optional" counterbalancing weight, which in my opinion should have been part of the standard equipment). I didn't care for this off to one side arrangement, so I sawed off the stop/counterweight-mount with a hacksaw, removed the pole, slid off one of the clamps, put the pole back through the center mount, and slid the clamp onto the other side. I can now hang the screen either vertically or horizontally and can center it on the boom, resolving the off-balance issues (who needs a weight at that point?). Bottom line is, the screen and stand provide you with a lot of capability for not a lot of money!

      For the price, the Botero product is a good value. But I was frustrated by the wrinkles (which always seemed to be in my field of view no matter which way I hung the background) and the lack of velcro or loops on the frame for mounting. The zip case is thin[...] In the end, I returned it and got the Photoflex model instead.

      As a working pro, we use these to photograph schools. They pop up instantly, couple of clamps and they're mounted onto the light stands. Hair light above, main and fill lights, and Bob's your Uncle! Saves a ton of time on setup. Trained monkeys can put it up, and almost fold them. Okay, the con is they are a little tricky to fold, but after a few times, you're a pro and it's not a big deal at all. It is funny to have a newbie try though! Buy any of the Botero pop ups. You'll be happy.

              Used for interviews. Easy to set up, no creases in the screen so it was easy to ultra key. Trickier to fold up but once you know how to fold it, not a problem

                            After years of working with cloth backgrounds for green screen work in non-ideal lighting scenarios, I needed a solution that was easier to set up that delivered more reliable results. Collapsible green screen to the rescue! Pops out, cloth stays taut, and the shadow-generating wrinkles are virtually non-existent. Lean it up against a wall behind your subject, and you're ready to shoot.

                            Not a con per say, but this screen is obviously not big enough for full body work, especially if you intend to key out a subjects feet. For that, you'll have to go with a traditional background, or a collapsible green screen that includes a floor cloth.

                              First time folding was a bit of a challenge...but that's just me.

                                    Excellent green screen. It keyed out perfectly using AE CS5's KeyLight plug-in. This was the first green screen I used and it was a snap. Don't be too worried about folding this sucker back up. It's simple once you get the hang of it. The key is to start on the wider side. You want to twist it into three circles.

                                      Easy use, great construction. Remains taut - does not require pressing to eliminate wrinkles.

                                            The screen seems a little flimsy but worked out ok. I tried about 3 times to collapse it before I figured it out but it's simple. Nice for quick and easy chroma-key.

                                                    I use this background for head & shoulders shots, on location. I use it at a slight angle so it can be evenly lit with a single strobe directly in front & almost parallel to it. Its big enough to be pushed back enough so there's no spill on the sitter from the background light, and also far enough away to avoid shadows from the key light. I place mine about 10' - 15' behind the sitter.

                                                    I suspend the background with a simple light stand & boom, & I've added my own velcro straps on the edge. This is so I can pull the screen edge slightly towards the lightstand to remove any remaining folds or creases.

                                                    If the background is perfectly evenly lit, & completely wrinkle free then it is then so much easier to process the images after.

                                                    So far I've had very good, trouble free results.

                                                        Comments about Botero #026 Collapsible Background - 5x7' - Chroma-Key Green:

                                                        Used mainly to obtain foreground images that are more easily extracted from background and are subsequently placed on digital backgrounds. Easy to transport and carry around. Folds flat without creases and was easy to refold after viewing product video. A must have piece of equipment if you use Photoshop.
