      X-Drops

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

      Great backdrop for portability. Only downfall is that it is very flimsy and light. I used this out doors and it kept blowing over. There really is not much weight to it. If you were to shoot indoors, it's perfect!

        Perfect for quick on-sight photo shoots. Easy to assemble and place almost anywhere needed. This kit is VERY lightweight and only takes a few minutes to put together. The soft carry case is adequate and easy to tote. I gave a 4 star rating because I feel the supports could be a little more solid. Overall I feel that this is a good value for the money.

          I originally saw an ad on line, it looked exactly what I wanted, extremely light and easy to set up. The product was available in different color backdrops.
          This stand however was a bit to flimsy and after using it just a few times one of the telescoping legs got jammed and I had to return the product.

          I just used the X-Drop kit with the black background for the first time this week. I did a window light family and six month old portrait session. The backdrop is lightweight and easy to assemble. In my images the black is deep and rich and wrinkle free. I am going to add the white background next!

            #1 thing I like about the X-Drop: Portability - includes carrying case, very light, easy to carry
            Can be moved even after being set up

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

            Other than remembering not to put the center pole taller than the side poles, I love this product (I used on a shoot and couldn't figure out why I had a wrinkle, until I started taking it apart - oops).

            The black would let light through if against a window/light source (so you might have to double up, which I think you could easily do with your own fabric and grommets), but if against a solid wall, works great. Love the compactness.

            The bag is wimpy though. No way you'd cram more backdrops in there, and the zippers are weak. First time packing up, they jammed and seams started bursting. If they could improve that, 5 stars.
