    Pretty Okay

    My observations:

    -The gray is a lot lighter than the one pictured.

    -The case it comes in is pretty flimsy and with probably rip.

    -Trying to get it to collapsible is kind of a pain, and it doesn't come with instructions on how to do so (though there are some on google)

    If you need something that's easily portable and relatively inexpensive I say buy it. But, if you're in need of something more substantial/reliable I would say save up and invest in something better.

    I bought the backdrop to use with a bit of location portrait work. I was tossing between this backdrop and the Lastolite (which was more than double the price) however was told there was no difference between the two.
    When I received the backdrop I noticed the grey was a fair bit off the colour as pictured on my calibrated monitor (though I did note where it did say colours differ from monitor to monitor) and there were some creases in the backdrop that I don't think would come out and would definitely show up in photos. Wish I had spent a bit more and got the Lastolite version that is crease free. I hope my friend who bought this product too after my recommendation prior to receiving the product doesn't feel the same way.

    Colors Vary - no opportunity to preview before purchase

    Pros

    • Lightweight

    Cons

    • Color Inconsistent
    • Slightly Wrinkled

    Best Uses

    • Indoors
    • Low Light

    Comments about Botero #050 CollapsibleBackground (5x7') (Studio Gray):

    The unfolding and folding are not difficult once you walk through it a few times. The carrying case is terrific.
    The colors of these vary rather wider than I would have expected. This one was more green-grey than the studio grey I anticipated. While the color is expected to vary, it would be nice if you could preview the actual product before purchasing so you know what you are getting, as the sample fabric is not the same as the produced one.
    the fabric is also slightly wrinkled.

        Comments about Botero #050 CollapsibleBackground (5x7') (Studio Gray):

        I use this for legal depositions. It is sheer, which is a problem. And today it was raining and when I took it out of the bag there were spots on the background which dried as huge water spots that did not come out. It is ruined. I am very disappointed with this product.

        Extremely simple to setup and shoot with. This is a very versatile background.

        4/5 stars because there is no instruction on how to fold these back up - check out YouTube for some assistance.

                              Comments about Botero #050 CollapsibleBackground (5x7') (Studio Gray):

                              My observations:

                              -The gray is a lot lighter than the one pictured.

                              -The case it comes in is pretty flimsy and with probably rip.

                              -Trying to get it to collapsible is kind of a pain, and it doesn't come with instructions on how to do so (though there are some on google)

                              If you need something that's easily portable and relatively inexpensive I say buy it. But, if you're in need of something more substantial/reliable I would say save up and invest in something better.

                                  Perfect for headshots and 3/4 shots. Gray is easier to shift colors than white. Doesnt wrinkle and collapses into a small 1' circle.
