          Comments about Matthews 24x36" Flag:

          First off I buy Matthews because they are quality and they last.
          Second I buy Matthews because they hold their value.
          I use flags to keep light from spilling where I don't want it. Avoid lens flare. Avoid light bouncing and illuminating where I don't want it. Subtracting light from a subject where needed.
          This size is a perfect size, since it is is large enough to cover but small enough to easily move around.

            Excellent build quality. The 90 degrees design is clever and useful. Very lightweight. As all Matthews products it's of top notch quality.

              The flag is typical Matthews. Strong no nonsense good old fashion work horse. What you see is what you get. 24x36 is better suite for studio application. If on location, I'd get the smaller version.

                  Its a flag that is made well and serves it purpose. It would be nice if it collapsed also but that is not something this one is suppose to do. So it is big and not as easy to transport.

                    Well made. Reinforced border for long life. Light "SHALL NOT PASS". Works well as anti light for creating high contrast, sucks up light like a black hole

                          I ordered this product as backdrops for studio photographing. Since I am a beginner in photographing, I was impressed with the overall quality of the material. It was neatly packaged and it handles well when it have to hang it on the rods. The only draw back that like some materials, it is a lint collector!

                            I use this to make shadows on things. JJ Abrams keeps telling me to stop blocking the lens flare with it, I'm not sure why. It fits into a C-stand grip head perfectly, like they were made to go together or something.

                                    Necessary to keep a filter flash created background from being 'contaminated' by stray light from subject strobes. Solid construction with no light leakage, but a little weighty.

                                        This is a lot stronger than I anticipated. Works perfectly.

                                          Haven't used it too much, but was in excellent condition and is great quality material.

                                            These flags are great and pretty large in size for a good beauty shoot. I used them with C-stands. They pretty much cannot be used with anything else other than a c-stand unless you buy the avenger grip kit and attach the super clamp to a table... That eliminates the need for one stand and is a cheaper alternative. Flags are NOT see through at all and one side has a velvet feel to it an absorbes light very very well. The construction is extremely solid and tightly sewn. Shipping is fast and secure as always.
