    Some of the biggest stregnths with this kit are its mobility and the room for additions.

    I ended up buying the optional black cloth. It comes in a compact bag with room for aditional backdrops.

    The only negative comment I can give would be in regards to the thickness of the cloth. If you have a strong light source (window, bright TV, lamps) it can, will shine through.

    Solution: you can place two backdrops on the same frame. You have have to remember to purchase an additional cloth or make your own.

    Over all, I am very impressed with this rig and I am thinking about buying another to use as a giant bounced light source buy purchasing the white muslin cloth.

    The screen works fairly well, but the stand isn't very useful for doing any sort of chroma keying. The stand doesn't hold the green screen taught, so the wrinkles in the screen showed up when I applied my chroma key effects. Since I'm just using this screen in a small studio, I put hooks in the wall and hung the screen up without the stand. It works just fine this way. The grommets make it easy to hang, and the screen is easy to put up and take down quickly.

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

      Portability and economy were the major factors in my decision to purchase the Westcott %' x 7' X-Drop Kit (green screen) . . .AND I WAS NOT DISAPPOINTED!!!

      It packs securely, is super light. The setup is easy (with not wrinkles.( It sets into our tight space requirements and moves easily.

      Thanks, B & H, for putting me onto this great product.

      And thanks for the speedy delivery.

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

              This greenscreen backdrop system is nothing fancy, but it doesn't need to be... it does what it is supposed to do and does it well.

              We mostly do greenscreen work in studio and have a permanent greenscreen on stage, but in this instance we had to do some compositing work shot on location for some special effects that combined studio and real-world locations. We needed something lightweight that could be moved in and out of the shot easily, and we needed long straight vertical edges to the screen (which is why we didn't just use a pop-up).

              This set up fast, worked well, and was easy to put in place then whip out of the way when needed. The cloth has a "nap" to it (it's a bit plush) which is a good thing, eliminates wrinkles and helps with shadows. The whole setup weighs next to nothing and assembles in less than a minute.

                      This is my first attempt at using a green screen background for video. I have a small space in my apartment, and found the tripod a bit large for my space. This is not the fault of the product. I found the kit to be easy to put together, and to use.

                              I am making a video about a recent vacation and wanted to have a head shot of myself as a host for the video. This screen was just the item needed. It is lightweight, has a quality bag for portability, is very easy to set up, and is the "right" size. I initially had a concern that wrinkles in the cloth would cause a problem but a test recording showed that the wrinkles were behind me and did not show. I do not yet own lighting fixtures and was concerned that shadows cast by natural lighting through a window would be a problem so I did my test shot outside in the shadow of a building and that worked fine. I have yet to see if the shadows will be a problem. I plan to purchase some lighting fixtures. This product is just the right size for use in the home and is quick and easy to assemble. And the bag provides good portability and storage.

                                  Needed a portable green screen that could be used in different circumstances and this was perfect!

                                    The frame/stand is super lightweight and somewhat flimsy... but it is exactly what I need! I shoot a lot of corporate marketing video and travel to customer sites on a regular basis. After shipping larger stands and backdrops to every place I go for years, I decided to give these a try. They pack small, they're lightweight, they pack and unpack quickly. Time will tell with regard to durability but for now...

                                      Some of the biggest stregnths with this kit are its mobility and the room for additions.

                                      I ended up buying the optional black cloth. It comes in a compact bag with room for aditional backdrops.

                                      The only negative comment I can give would be in regards to the thickness of the cloth. If you have a strong light source (window, bright TV, lamps) it can, will shine through.

                                      Solution: you can place two backdrops on the same frame. You have have to remember to purchase an additional cloth or make your own.

                                      Over all, I am very impressed with this rig and I am thinking about buying another to use as a giant bounced light source buy purchasing the white muslin cloth.

                                      This backDrop Kit is so light and easy to setup. I am an event photographer and my clients love when I use a backdrop on site. They love how I snap this up in place within seconds. Light weight and its easy to take down. Anyone can do this with one hand. Perfect on the go!!!

                                      The only con: I wish it was a bit stronger. Other than that, it's perfect! Love everything about it. I am going to order different backgrounds for parties, baby showers, and for portraits.

                                        I'm impressed how easy was to setup this green screen and even more the portability. The only reason for not give it 5 stars is because you need to treat the stand poles and hooks with much care since its material is cheap seem durable. The easy part is you can create your own matte background yourself.
