This is a well made product and easily collapsible after watching the video on Youtube. Be sure to watch how to collapse this background. The gentleman showing how to do this is spot on...much easier than the explanation provided with the background. This background has no wrinkles when fully open. The spring tension is more than adequate to prevent wrinkles. It is easy to lean it up against a wall. It has velcro holders on each side and is well balanced so that you could use two light stands to support it. It does not have a strap to hang from the top. It collapses into an easily transported case. This is a great size to use for headshots or even a 3/4---I use it for little kids. It is not reflective and even with a shadow it will produce a great background to use with the green screen software.

I got this to shoot video and take photos for keying. It works well but it really isn't big enough to use on a person. You have to be pretty close to get the entire shot filled with green. Even then you can only get waist up or so. It's nice, but for real green screen work (with people) you need something even bigger. I do like the portability of it.

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

      I like Impact products and own their larger screen also. The reasons for a rating below 5 stars is it takes some practice to collapse these screens....and while using outdoors against strong backlighting the screen can be a tad translucent letting some light through. Minor issues.
      The no-glare fabric offers nice even illumination and is easy to spot clean. The 3 velcro type loops are great for securing the screen almost anywhere. And it's extremely light weight and easy to transport. I recommend it.

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

      This green screen is awesome. It's very strong and its great at doing headshots. I like how you can fold it up and put it inside its own bag.

        I've been using this to do green screen filming, and it's been perfect. I live in a rather small apartment, so it's perfect for this.

            Commercial photography
            Light weight easy to set up(one C-Stand)
            You may want a sand bag or 2

            easy to light

            Only drawback -- The green cloth is a little thin.
            If you're comfortable shooting chroma key, you'll find this to be very easy to work with

                    Said that the screen wasn't big enough to fill the entire shot. Just wanted to give a helpful tip that it doesn't need to fill the entire frame just cover the actor, then you can mask them out. Otherwise, great product.

                      I used to use a piece of green cloth from a fabric store held up on a rack made from PVC tubing. I always had areas that caught the light wrong, and showed through my green screen videos.
                      This is compact, stores nicely and pops open perfectly flat.
                      Putting it back has a learning curve to it. But, there are videos on Youtube that show how to do it right.
                      Worth the money!

                        I use my portable green screen for quick funny ideas on my Vine & YouTube accounts. It gives me a lot of freedom to think and execute quickly.

                        It's sturdy, portable and a great size for Medium Shots, Close ups and even good for non-combat Full Shots! HA! It's also priced really well in my opinion.

                        There isn't anything I don't like about it. It really works for my needs.

                            We used this to shoot some easy green screen videos in an elementary school tech class, also using the app Green Screen by Do Ink. It worked great and the kids had a lot of fun. Stores easily and seems very durable.

                              Does the job at a very reasonable price. Practice makes perfect in folding it back into the carry case.

                              For the price this is a really great green screen. But of course I expected that from Impact. This green screen is much easier to fold than my other one from a different brand, just remember to fold it like a taco and then fold it into itself and presto bago. If I had it to all over again I would have purchased the larger one and will probably still add it to my collection. This is great for head shots but if of you want it to go past a headshot you will need the larger one. Also this a fabric and it does wrinkle, but once it is opened up the wrinkles fall away. Also because it is fabric, its not shiny like the other one I have.

                              Worth it.. Gt

                                Great screen! Well made. Professional grade. Large. Small and easy to carry when collapsed. Comes with case and instructions. Look for video tutorials on YouTube. Once you get, its easy to fold. Takes little practice.

                                Right out of the package there were no wrinkles. I've been steaming and ironing my old hanging backround, too much work. This thing is great and the perfect size, fit into little flat disc.
                                Hint on folding it... The directions say hold it like a taco first, then fold. You need to hold it the long way which takes getting used to but works like a charm. Got it in California from NY in like 3 days, great item great price, and it's well made.
