    Another piece of well made reliable gear from Matthews. This flag will block all light with its thick fabric and the steel frame will keep the fabric tights for many years.

        Contrary to popular beliefe, this is NOT designed to be hoisted onto your pirate ship's mast and flap in the wind, striking fear in the hearts of all you conquer.

        Sturdy, and solid! Really is a good flag!

        I've had no problems at all.

                Comments about Matthews 24x36" Flag:

                First off I buy Matthews because they are quality and they last.
                Second I buy Matthews because they hold their value.
                I use flags to keep light from spilling where I don't want it. Avoid lens flare. Avoid light bouncing and illuminating where I don't want it. Subtracting light from a subject where needed.
                This size is a perfect size, since it is is large enough to cover but small enough to easily move around.

                    The flag is typical Matthews. Strong no nonsense good old fashion work horse. What you see is what you get. 24x36 is better suite for studio application. If on location, I'd get the smaller version.

                        Its a flag that is made well and serves it purpose. It would be nice if it collapsed also but that is not something this one is suppose to do. So it is big and not as easy to transport.

                          Well made. Reinforced border for long life. Light "SHALL NOT PASS". Works well as anti light for creating high contrast, sucks up light like a black hole

                                I ordered this product as backdrops for studio photographing. Since I am a beginner in photographing, I was impressed with the overall quality of the material. It was neatly packaged and it handles well when it have to hang it on the rods. The only draw back that like some materials, it is a lint collector!

                                  I use this to make shadows on things. JJ Abrams keeps telling me to stop blocking the lens flare with it, I'm not sure why. It fits into a C-stand grip head perfectly, like they were made to go together or something.

                                      This flag is the perfect size, not too large to handle but not too small either. It's well built and blocks light off your lens or can cut a shadow perfectly. Necessary for any grip package.

                                          Necessary to keep a filter flash created background from being 'contaminated' by stray light from subject strobes. Solid construction with no light leakage, but a little weighty.
