    The setup was pretty straight forward, tho it does feel a bit flimsy. I was surprised by the amount of space that this takes up when setup. I can see it being a bit difficult if you were trying to setup in a smaller executive office. And if you do not fully extend the upper arms, then you will likely get wrinkles/folds in the backdrop.

    I liked that there was also a hanging hook for a sandbag, or other weight system, at the base of the central support point.

    The X-Drop...I am very disappointed in the quality/durability of this product. One of the black hooks on the upper section apparently snapped off while in the bag. Overall the product is too lightly built for repetitive use. This is not a product I could recommend based upon it's price/durability. It should be made from more durable materials and the hooks should be made to be replaced if needed.

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

      I'm an actor and often use this for self-taping or in instances where I need photos with good lighting, etc. but a blank wall is never strategically placed where you need it if you're working with natural lighting. This works great and was a lot bigger than I expected. I'm 5'4 and I'm able to use it for full body shots when necessary, although the bottom is sometimes annoying to adjust in order to avoid that weird shape it creates on camera where it hits the floor. I love that the cloth is durable and easy to take care of.

            Packs very condensed, and support a 5x7 background. I also use in conjunction with other cloth providers, and attach with added grommets. Extremely light, so not sure it will survive a long duration, but seems to be made well.

                I wish I had known about this a couple of months ago when I shot an event on location at the Humane Society. I improvised, but this would have been a snap to use, and I'm looking forward to many more opportunities to "have backdrop, will travel"! I am not going to say that it is flimsy - but it is lightweight, and as others have commented, probably not going to hold up outdoors in a wind.

                  Great backdrop for mini-photobooths. Enough room for up to 5 people to stand in front of. Haven't cleaned or tried to wash yet — but, the material seems durable. SUPER LIGHTWEIGHT.

                    The frame is great. Very light for traveling and easy to set-up. I doubt it would stand up to even a slight breeze so use indoors only. The 5 x 7 material is so light and very stretchy. The problem is attaching logos to it. I went with iron on t-shirt transfers. It takes a lot of measuring and the transfers don't stick very well. The finished product shows the print of the iron where it smashed down the nap of the material. It's not very professional looking. I'll either order a new background or go to a fabric store.

                        I use this for executive/business headshots. In an environment where you have to work fast the X Drop is a lifesaver. For years I've used 4ft seemless--it's so annoying and is always wrinkled and not to mention the fact that it's not as wide as the X Drop which is hugely helpful for tight spaces so that you can cover from frame edge to edge. Only 1 minor downside is the back leg of the tripod sticks out pretty far keeping you from putting it up against the wall. But I easily just collapse that leg and lean it or secure it on a stand to put it closer to the wall--Works JUST fine! LOVE how compact it is!

                            This is a simple yet great device for quickly taking portraits. I wouldn't say it's flimsy but rather lightweight which is one of its major advantages. I use it in my house with most rooms having a floor to ceilnig height of just under 8'. However, I can't fully extend the center support rod without it hitting the ceiling; I need to lower it by a couple of inches. Westcott's web site describes the background material as polyester but mine (the white color) seems more like a light, thin cottony material.All in all, this system does what I need it to do at a good price point.

                              I have been using this product to photograph sculpture pieces for cataloging. The backdrop easily will drape over a table or when used on the frame is mostly wrinkle free with tweaking. The back drop material is a little unusal feels more like light fleece than muslim. Very easy to set up,less than 5 minutes. Very portable and light weight easy to handle.

                                The X-Drop kit was used to shot a portrait photo of my guest. The system was easy to set-up and required less than 5 minutes. The price was very reasonable and I plan to acquire additional backdrops for future use.

                                  Very easy to assemble, takes up little room and works well for the newborn shoots that I have used it for.

                                  The setup was pretty straight forward, tho it does feel a bit flimsy. I was surprised by the amount of space that this takes up when setup. I can see it being a bit difficult if you were trying to setup in a smaller executive office. And if you do not fully extend the upper arms, then you will likely get wrinkles/folds in the backdrop.

                                  I liked that there was also a hanging hook for a sandbag, or other weight system, at the base of the central support point.

                                    This product is just as it was advertised. It sets up in a snap, is very light weight and compact - yet sturdy! This will be much easier to take to a location portrait session. I have a variety of back drop poles and stands for large muslins tht were always cumbersome for simple portrait. This will be my new favorite way to set up for portrait shoots. It will be great for headhsots and 1/2 body. There are many background choices for this system.
