I bought 2 of these backdrops so we could have 2 camera crews shooting interviews at the same time, because we were under serious time constraints!

...and wanted the end result to look like the same time and place.

this worked well for us, the patterns are random, but very similar and the color from back drop to back drop matched very well.

the material is on the lighter side, which could be a plus or a minus...

color nowhere near slate gray

I can still use it as a background, but it is definitely a muted teal. I would imagine that successive washings will tone it down, and I am going to keep it. ...Read complete review

I can still use it as a background, but it is definitely a muted teal. I would imagine that successive washings will tone it down, and I am going to keep it. However, it is not a neutral background.

One reason I am certain of the color is that I used a color checker passport when taking photos with the background.

I would recommend the entire line of Impact Tie-Dye muslin backgrounds but if you need neutral gray, this item is not for you.

    The package arrived on-time, and it was exactly the color I thought it would be. The cloth material seems like good quality. Can machine wash. The backdrop looks great on video.

        What a great background for a photoshoot I had this past weekend right tones. My clients separated very well from the background. B&H was a great vendor had my item ships to me fast and on time. Will buy more of these backgrounds. Thank you

          The back drop is large enough for all uses, the only draw back is the color, not exactly slate grey at least not to my eye! The vinyl bag it comes in leaves a little to be desired, very cheap and ripped while taking the backdrop out of it.

          Comments about Impact Tie-Dye Muslin Background (10 x 12', Slate Gray):

          I use it for portraits. I was surprised by the overall appearance when it was unpacked and visually inspected. It's mostly the problem of ordering from a small photo and then seeing the actual product in full size. The color was a little different than I expected and removing the wrinkles is a task.

              Like the colors of this backdrop, all melds together when not focused on it. Seems sturdy and is huge. Pro photographer doing people portraits.

                I bought this tie-dye muslin background to use as a general-purpose back drop for portraits and to hide ugly backgrounds when shooting product close-ups. I'm very pleased with the color, texture and weight of the fabric. As other reviewers have noted the color is a little more neutral than depicted on the web (less warm tones), which I prefer. I am also very pleased with the vinyl carrying case the background shipped in, which should keep it in great shape when I need to transport it to locations. Very pleased so far.

                  This background is exactly the one you see in the picture. Sometimes what you receive is different than what you saw in the picture. It's good and soft. Because of the patterns, it won't show the little winkles in your image unless you focus on them. I like it. it met my expectation.
