I use this for a dark background for light colored objects I shoot, both video and stills. It was easy to steam wrinkles out of the package when received it has a sturdy feel and easy to attach to my backdrop stands and rail.

I can say nothing bad has it fullfils its primary purporse very weel and at avery afordable price point.

I would recommend this to anyone needing a dark backgound.

Large, but wrinkley

The best thing about the muslin background is its size; it's plenty big enough for most jobs, and it has no seams.
The only disadvantage I have noticed so far is that it is very difficult, if not impossible, to iron out the wrinkles.I often use it to cover a table on which I photograph objects, and when the cloth is in the frame the wrinkles are visible. Perhaps paper or canvas would have been a better choice.

    Comments about Impact Muslin Background - 10 x 12' (Black):

    We purchased 5 of these panels to create a backdrop to our stage at church. The fact that they came already hemmed eliminated a step in buying fabric, sewing, etc, and the fact that they were for photography means they work well with light - we were looking for something more light absorbent than light reflective. Great product. Planning to purchase another set in white.

    Comments about Impact Muslin Background - 10 x 12' (Black):

    The product is just what the description says it is. I was concerned due to the product photo that it wouldn't be black enough, but it is. Yes, it has creases, but it IS fabric, so that's what happens. On test shots, it still came out black enough that you don't notice, and what you DO notice you can easily Photoshop out. Sure, paper has no creases, but it's heavy, difficult to transport, is consumable and you can't adjust the width. I like the flexibility of fabric. For my first backdrop purchase, I'm pleased!

        I purchased this for a school dance shoot. Worked great, good quality and durable. Was very dirty due to students stepping on it, but washed it and everything came out fine. Good product.

        This works well if you need a larger background, It does wrinkle very easily, so be ready to work those out. If you think you can work with a smaller background, The Wescott X-Drop is faster and easier to set up and has much fewer wrinkles. I did have to go on location with this backdrop and it held up nicely (aside from having to transport the support poles-whitch is a pain!)

            I use the background for one or two person video interviews. It's large enough so that a lot of distance can be put between the subject and the background. This way there isn't any light bleeding onto the background.

              The backdrop is a good weight, and the top loop allows us to easily run our backdrop support through in no time. After I bought it I found out it's the exact same one we use at my day job. (Who knew?) The only issues we had were keeping some (minor) wrinkles out of it, and a window behind it was showing up in our pictures. A quick shut of the shade put a stop to that. If need be, I'd buy again.

                Its a good for shots with one or two ppl but if you do group shots you may want to go one size up. It gets pretty wrinkled too, you may want to have a steamer handy if you're planning on doing a professional shoot.

                        Clean black background that doesn't show with correct video settings. Comes with a nice plastic zippered carrying case. The slot for the crossbar pole to slide through is a little small and some crossbars will get caught or extremely snug. I have to remove the locking screw from the crossbar each time to slide this on. Other than that, it's a black screen that doesn't show wrinkles clearly. Does the job and large enough for 2 or possibly 3 person sit down.

                        It's a black back drop, with a loop for the frame, but it wrinkles easily if you pack it away.
