Easy setup to replace my 10x12 curtain that just took too long to setup and stretch. Used this this week and easily shaved off 15-20 of my setup time. Canvas "flat" texture.

Fabric is not so good.

We use this outdoor usually for mobile keying of medium size objects and people from the waist up (the size doesn't let you easily to full body, although it's not impossible).Read complete review

We use this outdoor usually for mobile keying of medium size objects and people from the waist up (the size doesn't let you easily to full body, although it's not impossible).

Pro: It's easy to collapse and stores at a good size. Blue on one side and green on the other - which has been useful a couple times.

Con: Still kind of floppy when open, so it takes two people to hold it flat enough to get even lighting. The fabric has wrinkles that are hard to get rid of. Our copy had little white water spots on the blue side, which was annoying. Seems like more attention needs to be paid to the fabric if this product were to improve.

Overall, great portable greenscreen for the price. But you have to clean it up and iron it a bit.m Nowhere near perfect. If you have more money, get something else.

    Large 2-sided matte cotton panel

    By Ezravision

    from ANTIOCH, CA

    Comments about Impact Collapsible Background - 5 x 7' (Chroma Blue/Chroma Green):

    Even though I saw the dimensions when I bought this, it was a surprise to see how giant this thing is. It easily can be a background for a standing tall person while leaned against a wall behind the subject (if it is not windy). The cotton fabric may attract dust and stains because of the matte surface, so the included pouch is handy while in transport.

    This product is great for doing indoor green/blue screen work. I have yet to try and use it for anything else.

    I love how big it is and how easy it is to set up.

    I can see folding it and unfolding it could create creases and potentially be a green/blue screen nightmare, just be aware of this.

        Good item. The carrying bag seems to be of reasonable quality, and the window in it allows me to quickly determine whats inside. The background is relatively flat when open (doesn't twist or distort very much at all) and is easy to fold.

        Nice size for grabbing waist high and head shots. Flip it vertical for full body shots. A green side and blue side depending on need. Good product.

        Larger than I thought.

        By Al

        from Philadelphia

        Comments about Impact Collapsible Background - 5 x 7' (Chroma Blue/Chroma Green):

        I had a 5x7 green screen cloth that came with my starter kit, but upon receiving the reversible background, man was I pleasantly surprised. I hung it on an old background stand and it worked perfectly. The height allows a whole body to be shot and I'm 6'9. With this I won't be ordering a larger green screen for a while. Very versatile.

          The frame around the cloth makes if perfectly streched and therefore produces a smooth image.
          Its foldable hability makes it pratical to take to any place.

              It is exactly what I expected. The quality seems good and it is easy to deploy. I was concerned that the fabric would be wrinkled, but it looks nice and flat when the frame stretches it tight. It should be just large enough to make a backdrop for medium shots -- perfect for interviews.

                    This is my 3rd Impact background.
                    Does everything it should. Am a pro
                    and use it in multiple locations.
                    On one job, set up 250 times.
                    Worked great!

                        Purchased after much research; I have a 10x10 chroma which requires much clampling, pulling, etc. This folding screen is a perfect size, unfolds nice and tight. Easy to clamp to a light stand, etc. Very well manufactured, carry case is great. Price is fantastic, excellent service from B&H as always. Definitely recommend!

                          This background is perfect for outdoor shots or in someone's office. I have used the background both green and blue in different places that required me to be mobile and visit the client in their own setting. Once you figure out how to fold it back up it makes this a breeze to travel with.

                                    The colors are good and the size matches what the website indicated. I'm not at all disappointed. There is one tie back on each side of the backdrop to hang it from a stand. It would have a little bit better stability if there were maybe two per side but it works as is. I struggle to get it folded down by myself to fit back inside it's storage case. Overall I'm happy with the product.

                                      Use this product along with green screen software with great results. First time use made enough to pay for backdrop 10 times over. Have green screen backdrop bought from major backdrop company but it is 10 x 20 to use in studio. This product is just as good.

                                      Comments about Impact Collapsible Background - 5 x 7' (Chroma Blue/Chroma Green):

                                      The Impact Collapsible Background -5x7' is a useful tool if portability and small settings is where you're going to use it.

                                      B&H advised this product for a specific use and the folks there are knowledgeable and insightful. This product will save you money on backgrounds if you use it in the right way. You're not going to get a full body shot with this product, but it's perfect for halfbody/headshot shooting or still life work. You have a choice of blue or green on each side.
                                      When you open it up do so in a large enough space as it will fling out rather quickly. You can hang it or lean it against a wall.
                                      The only drawback is it is not easy to fold up which is why it gets 4 stars instead of 5. You will need patience and your wits to get it back into the zip cover. So the only way to deal with that is to use the product often otherwise you'll be scratching your head for 10 minutes or more. Always keep the instructions handy.

                                      Reasonably priced, good quality. For portrait shoots I had been using some collapsible backgrounds that have mottled patterns. I wanted the flexibility of dropping in my own background.
