      Comments about Impact 5x7' Collapsible Background Kit (Black/White):

      Purchased this because of the price and size.

      First complaint. The white side is actually light gray, and thin enough that you can see through it to the black side.

      Second complaint. If you can get past that the backdrop is gray, and not white. Once used with the stand, the backdrop is so heavy that it makes the stand flex and can fall over if you are not using a sandbag to support the stand.

      Overall, if you don't mind the gray color of the backdrop, it's good quality. (If you really want, use a flash to light the backdrop and it will whiten up) It's not that bad. Also, the stand is a good stand, just not strong enough to fully support this heavy backdrop. The stand seems better suited to hold a lighter weight backdrop or reflectors. Each individual product isn't that bad, they are just bad together.

      Comments about Impact 5x7' Collapsible Background Kit (Black/White):

      I'm an actor as well as a headshot photographer, so I tend to move around a lot. This kit is a great option that takes up a small amount of space and provides you the flexibility to shoot anywhere and everywhere. The drop is a little tricky to fold back up, and at times feels like it's going to bend in a bad way, so I tend to leave it out of the bag as much as I can. The drop does wrinkle, which is also why I don't store it in the bag. I was a "white wall" shooter until I got this, and I'm kind of obsessed with the dark side...it's really great.

      The boom stand that's included is a little light and flimsy, which is why I gave the kit 4 stars. That being said, this stand isn't meant to be a heavy duty stand. It's meant to be easily transportable, and to keep the drop upright. I wouldn't recommend trying to lift the drop off the ground with the stand unless you firmly wait the base of the stand, as the overall weight of the drop can be too much for the boom.

      Overall, this is a great starter background kit for semi-pros just getting into portraits/headshots, or for photographers that move around a lot. Happy with my purchase.
