    fantastic backdrop, especially if you dont' have room for the real stuff. again, terrific.

    One big problem-we tried so hard to collapse it, following the way we were shown to do. It's very difficult. still haven't collapsed it yet.

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

      If you need an inexpensive collapsible background, that you can throw in the car and pop upo to create a supperb backing for headshots, this is an ideal item! I woud say that the only downside that this particular background suffers from, is a generic one... the requirement to practice getting the darned thing folded back down again... but we ALL suffer fom this until we watch a few YouTube videos! I reckon that this was a good deal and it will keep me in headshot work for some time hopefully.

        Nice to have a two sided backdrop. White looks white, not gray like many other brands. Easy to fold.

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

            This background works fine in a pinch, though it might not be something you wish to use long-term. As others have noted, small wrinkles or creases in the fabric are present, though if your subject is not excessively close to the background, creases and wrinkles are not seen (they will be out of focus). I have a minor discoloration on the piece I received--some yellowing areas, something like two or three "streaks". Still, the background photographed "white enough", and no discolorations were visible at all in photographs.

              This background is easy to use and after watching the youtube video very easy to collapse and put away.It's great for corporate headshots.

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

                It would be helpful if it was a touch thicker, but this works as it should. I got this white one because I read reviews that the B&W one would show the white as a light grey. The size of this is adequate for small/medium sized pets, children, head shots, maybe you can get away with more if you creatively position this background. I wish I had got a 6x7' actually so consider that...
                Anyways - nothing wrong with 4 stars and you can travel with it.

                  The background is great for shooting a single headshot. It unfolds very quickly (be careful to watch whats around you) and it is very compact when folded. I have folded reflectors before but this was a bit more difficult do to it's size.

                  Even though it is very portable, it would still be beneficial to bring some sort of stand with you set it up on. I happened to balance it on a couch when I used it but would definitely not do that again.

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

                  I had been looking for sometime for something that I could use as a portable projection screen. I didn't want a clumsy tripod, and some of the stretch screen (Lycra) projection screens seemed overpriced. I picked this up because it can not only be used as a portable projection screen, but I can also use it as a backdrop for video or photos. My only gripe is that there are only Velcro straps on three sides of the oval...it would have been nice to have it on all four sides.

                        Set up easily. Simple to transport. Barely any wrinkles and the ones that were there are a cinch to take care of post edit. I was scared for when I had to collapse it and put it back in the case because of all of the reviews I read but it folded up 1, 2, 3 and slipped into the carrying case perfectly on the first try. If you need a portable backdrop for simple one person head-shots, this product is most definitely for you!

                          I use this as a backdrop for my bi-weekly Youtube episodes. I shoot in a small office and this has given me a nice uniform look improving my videos greatly. I wouldn't go any smaller than this though as you would need to shoot quite close to the subject to get everything in your frame. You can see this backdrop in action on my recent videos: [@]
