              The only learning curve on the use of the collapsible background was on the collapsing of the background after use. ;)

                I use this for chroma keying talent for a weekly webcast. Like all Impact products I've purchased it's well made and priced. It's easy to set up and strike. Regarding folding - just read the directions or watch one of the many YouTube videos and you'll have no problems.

                            There's a great video on B & H's site that shows you how to fold this Chroma Key screen. I'd read some reviews where people found it difficult to put back in its container and as I saw the video I did it in a few seconds.

                            This background is the perfect size for a full body shot or head and shoulders. The solid edges allow it to lean against a wall or furniture without tape or clamps. Light weight to carry, and well constructed.

                              This thing is perfect for my needs. Some small wrinkles in it, but they don't cause issue in keying.This thing is super green; you can even key things out when standing on grass!

                                If you watch the tutorial, the man makes it look sooooo easy to fold. I'm sure he's a nice guy, but I hate him. I would definitely practice and find your own way to fold it before taking it out to a shoot.

                                I can't complain too much since if it was very easy to fold, it would not likely be as taut and therefore eliminate visible wrinkles as it does so nicely. Most importantly, I am able to get a good key out of it.

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

                                      I work in a small space, so this handy, portable green screen is an ideal solution for shooting talking heads for videos. The design is quite clever. The Velcro ties can be attached to C-stands, but you don't even need them, as the wire structure is strong enough to prop up against a wall. The fabric has no sheen, and while it comes out of the bag with wrinkles, they quickly disappear when the screen pops open. Collapsing it takes a bit of practice, but once I got it, I was surprised by how easy it is.

                                        I bought this green screen because it had a matte finish to it unlike others I had seen.

                                        When I got it, it came with easy-to-follow instructions for unfolding and folding the screen and, so far, it has been working out great!

                                        It even comes with its own carrying case with handle.

                                        Would highly recommend.

                                          I purchased this product to upgrade our humble office video studio. It came as advertised, and seems to be doing the trick.

                                            This is probably the best portable green screen I've found. So many are made out of a metallic fabric that makes hot spots when you film. This, however, is a nice matte cotton that gives you the perfect background to key. Not only that, but when it's unfolded, there are no wrinkles, which makes it perfect for keying applications.

                                            And to those who think it's hard to fold up... If you read the instructions, it's actually pretty simple, and fits great in the carrying case it comes with.

                                              I have been looking for a durable green screen that does not take up a lot of storage space...and that's what I got.

                                              Color is perfect, easy to move around. I would have given it five stars had it come with instructions as to how to properly fold it up. I had to look up a tutorial on [@] to pack it up again. Tho the result is often comical, it's hardly practical on a mobile shoot

                                                If you know how to fold a Flex Fill, you won't have any problems with this. Best for quick keys of small objects & head & shoulder shots, when you can't keep a green screen up permanently. Advice: position object 6 feet in front of screen to reduce spill; use telephoto lens to maximize background coverage. Light background soft & flat, no shadows.
