    I use this portable background stand to go on location and take portrait photos of government officials and business executives and this setup makes it possible. With this background stand I can turn any office or boardroom into a professional studio in just a few minutes. You can use paper rolls, muslin and collapsible (pop-up) backgrounds, you name it just clamp it on and you're in business.

    Here's a Production tip: I attach a small lighthead on an adjustible boom-arm to each background stand down low just above where the legs spread out. This adds an adjustible fill light to your background and keeps your lightheads off the floor. Works like a charm.

    Expensive for a folding innovation

    The supports fold nicely in a square shape and lock toghether, carry bag is excellent, if you raise the support max height it will be a little shaky.

        This stand is sturdy enough for any backdrop! The stands clamp together for easy transport. The poles are also able to be used as light stands. You can't go wrong with this set.

          I took this background system on my last corporate photo shoot. It worked great. When I opened the box I was concerned the stands were going to be too flimsey but they actually worked great. I used a heavy muslim backdrop and had no issues at all. I also like the fact the stands have a stopping point when opening them. I smashed my finger with one of my other light stands of a differnt brand. I love love love that this is light weight and easy to carry!

              This is my non-permanent background support in my home studio. It's sturdy, goes up/comes down quickly, and is compact in storage.

              It suits my needs exactly. When not in use, it also can provide me with two spare light stands.

                  Good case and an interlocking system that makes this backdrop system easy to transport. A little flimsy (stands) but not too bad.

                        I'm using this background support system for both still photography and video assignments with rolled seamless paper. The design of the stands with their interlocking stack make them easy to store and even easier to set up. The cross bar extends and locks firmly and mounts onto the stands as you would expect. My only minor gripe is that the fittings on each end of the cross bar don't fit easily through the tube of the seamless paper roll. They mount on the stands nicely, but you have to either screw in the retaining screw all the way or remove it for the bar to fit. (Look closely at the photos of how the cross bar attaches to the stand and you'll see what I mean.) This is only an inconvenience, but I would expect a product designed to be used with seamless rolls would have given this a little more consideration.

                        Comments about Manfrotto Background Support System (9' Width):

                        I needed a portable bacground support system that was easy to set up and strike while being lightweight yet sturdy. The Manfrotto system fits all my needs better than expected.

                        The air cushioned stands fold flat and lock together. The telescoping pole extends and collapses easily. No more 3-piece poles to fight with. Slip the pole through your muslin background pocket, or secure it with the included clamps. I can set up a 10' wide, 8' tall background in less than 5 minutes, by myself. When it's time to strike, it all collapses and slips into the small shoulder sling bag, along with room for a few more accessories and umbrellas.

                        I walk into a location for studio setups carrying nothing more than my camera backpack over one shoulder, this background support system on the other shoulder, and a couple of light stands for my speedlites. One person, one trip, no carts.

                        I've been using this setup for 3 years now, on the road, with no problems.The only complaint I have is the price. That's the only reason I give it 4 stars rather than 5.

                        Lightweight, air cushioned, easy to set up and strike, packs tightly, but expensive for what it is.

                          Replaced my "home made" configuration with this system and really love it. It's easily sturdy enough for my studio work, and I don't intend to take it on the road. The 2 clamps are very nice and all the hardware, like knobs, are professional quality.

                              I don't have much experience but I'm satisfied with the easy set up and take down. It also holds heavier backdrops :) I think I'm going to LOVE this thing!

                                This is such a thoughtful product. The way everything fits together in the small shoulder sling is awesome. The lightweight system sets up so easy and stands very sturdy. A real winner!

                                  I use this support system in a home studio and on location. It is sturdy and easy to assemble and disassemble. the light stands are air assist so when you release the locking mechanism the poles do not just slam down. The hardware is top quality and seem like they will provide years of service in heavy use. Cross pole is build solid too and can hold the weight of a large 10X20 muslin back drop although the ligth stands only extend to 7.75'. It comes with a very nice carrying bag that holds all the pieces without a struggle to get them in the bag. The bag is very durable and has carry handles and a shoulder sling. I would recommend this product.
