      Comments about Westcott X-Drop Kit (5 x 7', Eminence):

      The emphasis here is on lightweight and travel. That is how it's described so as long as you aren't looking for indestructible and heavy duty, you will take this kit for what it is designed to be. If you aren't too rough with it, it should last fine, but I would not be rough with it.It was on sale so I picked it up at a very reasonable price. The only thing keeping me from giving 5 stars is wishing there were more backgrounds available for the kit. I may see about hitting the fabric store and picking up fabric and grommets and having someone sew in some edge seams for me using the supplied backdrop as a template.

      Comments about Westcott X-Drop Kit (5 x 7', Eminence):

      As an occasional portrait photographer I wanted a reasonably durable portable economical backdrop kit. This one works okay for my purposes. It's a good idea but if I were doing more of this type of work I think I would want a more durable heavy duty model. If you treat it with care and are not using it every day, it will treat you well.

        Comments about Westcott X-Drop Kit (5 x 7', Eminence):

        The product is easy and quick to set up. Basic backgrounds such as the additional gray and white ones I plan to buy are the most useful. The entire kit can fit into a light stand bag. Great for quick headshots and quick product photography. The rods do feel a little cheap, but it's a very useful kit that folds down pretty small. You may want to sandbag it if you're using any strong fans, but under normal use it's a great product.

          Is good for a quick set up for headshots, quick background needs. The backdrops, sold seperately, are quite overpriced for what they are. Perhaps a "bundle" of backdrops sold with the frame would be positive, the stand is quite flimsy, that could be an issue!

            This is a very well thought our product for the home shooter. It has some plastic parts where metal would have been way better for durability. Though for the casual home user it is a very handy item to have.

            a little tough to setup, but it is sturdy enough indoors. i would be nervous to have it outdoors. it would be better if it were more adjustable to handle tilt

            Comments about Westcott X-Drop Kit (5 x 7', Eminence):

            I like how easy this is to set up. The fact that you can carry many different backgrounds in one case is nice too. It is very portable and can set up almost anywhere. The one thing I don't like, is that it seems a little flimsy. The bars on the tripod are a little too thin for my liking. It seems they could bend easy if you're not careful with them. I take care of my stuff, but if someone were to knock into this and it fell over, I'm not sure it could take the fall. I wish the polls were made with some thicker metal, just for the confidence factor. I wouldn't mind a little extra weight to carry around, in exchange for confidence in the structure. Overall, I like this, I'm not in love with it. It's going to be very useful and will do exactly what is advertised. 4 out of 5.

            I use this kit for head shots primarily. Very easy to transport and set up at a clients home, office or other location. Carrying case is handy but not of top quality. I gave 4 stars but it is really 4.25 stars. Took off a three quarters of a star for quality of carrying case and backdrop stand. Wish both were made of better materials and quality.
