    I work for a web development company starting to work in video. I've been a serious video hobbyist for several years now. For the price, I was incredibly impressed with how easy it was to set up, and pull a great key even in terrible lighting. With $40 worth of shop lights and a fill reflector (white foam board) from [@], I was able to set up a 3-point system and pull a perfect key on a female subject with long hair! WOW!Very impressed, highly recommend to anyone looking to do interviews, standard "man-in-front-of-a-green-screen", and other forms of video production.

    Needed a green screen for customer projects.

    Great size, good fabric, liked the compact format when folded

    Not very well made (mine split at the seem between the floor runner and the main section). Need a backdrop stand to get the most out of it. You can lean it against the wall and it's fine but it's better supported by a stand.

    Overall a good buy for the occasional shoot - probably wont impress your client tho'

        This background screen was purchased for teachers to create and teach webinars and make videos for the Parish's teachers in our schools. It is the easiest screen to set up and take down. We have several ladies using this one screen, will more than likely purchase each of them one.

          We use it for smaller in-house productions where the chroma key does not have to "perfect".
          Dont get me wrong, for the price you get great chroma key screen but the only thing is that there is not space enough to get people walking.

          Recommended for smaller productions.

          This green screen is awesome. I got it really fast. And I don't know why I didn't expect it, but this screen is huge. It was hard to fold at first, but it's just something to get use to.

            Comments about Impact Super Collapsible Background - 8 x 16' (Chroma Green):

            I was impressed with the size of this background. You can almost use it two ways. Backwards when you don't need to worry about the floor (feet) showing, this way the frame holds the fabric tight and there are minimal wrinkles. When you need the floor extension just place small pieces of gaffers tape around the edge to hold the fabric taunt – that seemed to work well at reducing the wrinkles.

              Primarily used for students learning to green screen video for school productions. We have a large screen with a stand and clamps, but it sags a bit in the middle of the bar and putting it up and down is a pain. This fits our needs perfectly. The spring load keeps it nice and tight for shooting, and although putting it back in the case is a challenge until you get the hang of it, the mobility factor is great. Just wish it came two sided (green/blue) like the smaller ones.

                This is the third Impact 8x16 collapsible I've purchased – one for a client, and a black and now green for me. They are well constructed, easy to set up and tear down, easy to transport, and the greens key cleanly. The long skirt lets you shoot a full body portrait in a very small space. I use a pair of On-Stage speaker stands that fold into a bag to suspend the background – they're super light but built to hold heavy audio speakers so they aren't going to fall over.

                    Works Great! Large enough to get 2-3 people in a group shot/interview and the extended bottom is great for a cyc-wall. Cyc flap tends to wrinkle after storage but can be pulled smooth with a few tugs. Lights well and keys clean. Very satisfied

                      As soon as my new green screen arrived I put it to work and it functioned GREAT! The size is perfect and the portability is exactly what I needed.

                      It did have wrinkles but a few minutes with a steamer took care of those.

                      Best bang for the buck in my opinion.

                        This is a very large green screen that folds into a roughly 3-foot diameter carrying case. After a long shoot, folding this sucker is always good for a few laughs. We did manage to get it done.
                        The screen is big enough for any job. The top part is relatively wrinkle free This is the most important part because this is where the main backdrop will be place in post. The bottom is VERY wrinkly but, it's not as important as the top since the people will mostly be filmed only in front of the top.
                        I had been shopping for a long time for an affordable, large foldable green screen. this certainly fit the bill. It also compliment my more permanent green screen in my basement studio.

                                Overall I'm happy with it. It wrinkles more than I would like and putting it away definitely takes some practise but when you consider all it's features I don't regret this purchase. When I don't need to show the subjects feet, I will use the backside of the backdrop as it does not wrinkle like the front does.

                                  Very big, and collapses to be very portable. One drawback is that it still needs a stand to support it, which you will have to by separately.

                                  This is pretty handy, it is difficult to stand up by itself but with a little help with a stand or some gaffer's tape it sets up fine. The skirt section will get wrinkly but it did not impact my green screen photos at all.

                                    I used this for last x-mas. Turn out pretty nice. Have a hard time to fold it down.

                                      I like that it folds flat and can be stored under the bed. In addition, it stands alone against a wall (slight sag at top), with no extra cross-bar and stands needed. The color keys out well in Cyberlink Power Director. I use a Canon 7D with a 20-70mm lens which gives me nice depth of field. Set your subject up 6 to 8 ft from screen, light your screen separate from your subject [subject must be backlit (use 3 point lighting)!], and enjoy (5 lights total needed to produce perfect results). I would not recommend if you shoot chroma key every day, but I only need this option a couple of times a year. It paid for itself on first shoot. Watch videos online for more info.
