Awesome investment!

Comments about Impact Background Kit with 10 x 12' Stone Blue/Nickel Reversible Muslin Backdrop:

I have no complaints for this backdrop. I have been doing photography for a few years now, and have begun doing photography sessions and building up clientele for a while. So I decided to invest in professional equipment. I've used a large variety of other products, and getting the experiences with those products helped me know exactly what to look for.

The backdrop was delivered in exactly two days and with no problem, I was able to
un-box and use right away.
One thing to keep in mind, is that in order to keep it from damaging, you need to properly handle it with two or more people each time it's being set up or taken down. Raising and lowering rods with the backdrop on it can ware the strength of the rods. As I've found using similar products.

Also many people think you need sand bags, the truth is, unless you have the budget for sandbags and must have them - it's not a necessity with this particular backdrop.

This background is a simple, very easy to use, and sturdy set. It is also the best backdrop for entry level photographers and professionals who are just looking for an inexpensive backdrop that will get the job done. The fact that you get a double sided background adds to the reason why this is a great investment. I recommend getting this backdrop if you or someone you know is looking for a very good backdrop.

    Comments about Impact Background Kit with 10 x 12' Stone Blue/Nickel Reversible Muslin Backdrop:

    Except for a very few exceptions, most of my work is with landscape photography. Recently, my daughter gave birth to our first grandchild and she wanted me to do a photoshoot of the new baby. I needed a nice backdrop, but did not want to invest in an expensive studio setup as I would be using it only very rarely. I also wanted a setup that was easy to assemble, take apart and store. The Impact series did the trick for me. It is solidly built and almost infinitely adjustable -- height versus width. The reversible muslim backdrop provided with this specific kit provided a beautiful, yet simple, background.

    My only "nits" (and they really are trivial nits) with the system are: 1. the collapsible tripod legs sometimes require a little "finessing" to start to open or close. Once started, however, the legs collapse and expand easily; 2. the telescoping support poles can bind somewhat if not retracted/expanded when perfectly vertical.

    What I particularly like about the setup is that it is very stable when the tripod bases are set up properly -- i.e., fully extended and facing each other on the same configuration (e.g., two legs of three facing inwards). During my "baby photoshoot", my niece's 3 year old decided to play "hide and seek" with the backdrop as my niece watched in horror waiting for the whole thing to collapse on her -- but the supports remained solidly upright and survived the pulls and tugs of the 3 year old.

    I have also used the backdrop for photographing items for charity sales, draping the muslin backdrop (supported from above by the tripod system) over a small table for item support. As such, it is much more flexible than a specialized shooting tent or table.

    In summary, this is a very nice kit for the beginning studio photographer.

      I bought this kit with the intention of using it as a background for video submissions, and it has worked out great. I love the fact that the support breaks down into an easy to carry case.

      The only thing I found lacking are weights for the stands which are almost a necessity if you are on a surface that isn't level, are shooting outdoors with any wind, or have lots of movement of your subject.

      Great kit. I will add green screen. No need for sand bags.
