Excellent Backdrop

By Mark
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2023-03-22

A game changer when you consider I previously used a rolled paper backdrop that got bent and wrinkled in the transfer process. It quickly folds down, for easy transport, and has 2 different color sides to be used depending on the mood of the photoshoot. The stand and attachment were a bit flimsy, but I simple bring along 2 stands and a cross bar, that I brought at B&H, that expands to the desired length. Seems to be a quality product, as well.

Highly Recommended

This backdrop is perfect for quick and on the go studio like set ups. I use it for headshots like in the attached photos. Easy to set up, tear down and carry anywhere. Quality is great!

Good!

Hi, It works fine and pretty easy to set up, once you know. The 4 instead of 5 is because there were no set up directions, I had to go through a couple of google searches to understand why the clip wasn't hanging correctly. It took about a half hour but once I did, it was fine.

Perfect for Mobile Setups

This kit is a fantastic alternative to carrying around a full-sized backdrop setup. The material is wrinkle-resistant for the most part and very easy to clean. Breaking down the pop-up was a breeze after a quick YouTube search. The included stand is okay - the only drawback to this kit is the included clip. The plastic material isn't very strong. Our clip snapped completely on the second use and we've resorted to using some spring clamps from the hardware store. Overall still a great product!

It's very wrinkled, but the problem is that it looks very different from the photo. The dark spots look like someone accidentally spilled olive oil on it. Going to B&H in person for another, so I there are no more surprises

I love it!

Super easy to set-up and exactly what I needed. I really like that it is reversible too!

Great Portable Backdrop

I purchased this pop-up background kit for on-location headshot jobs and it's been great. The gray is a great neutral and isn't transparent so I can light it properly. It's slightly difficult to fold back up when finished, but there are a lot of YouTube videos on how to easily fold up these backgrounds. If I could give any advice on this product, it would be to make sure you have clean hands, and keep oily skin away from the fabric, as it will stain. Otherwise, I love this kit!

Does the job!

If I have to fold up I can (although I always struggle with it) so it's portable and it's industry standard. Effective and useful.

Have the background open and mounted for about a month now. Not only are wrinkles still present but there are pockets here and there and they do show on video. Steaming from what I read here takes care of the wrinkles. What fix does the manufacturer suggest to get rid of the pockets? Is there for example a technique for pulling the fabric around the rim? Can someone please describe the steps to take? Thanks.

First, I suggest you contact the manufacturer. Secondly, try Duct Tape. It fixes everything!

The cloth background has the potential to wrinkle but the metal band helps pull it out. In most cases you do not need to steam it.

I’m having trouble connecting the backdrop to the stand when hanging horizontally. When horizontal, there are no straps in the middle to connect to the stand, so how can it effectively connect and hang centered when there are no straps in the middle, only on either side of the middle? Thanks for your help!
Asked by: Hannah
This stand is made for Vertical orientation. You can use a 2nd stand for horizontal or get this stand with 2 clips B&H # IMLSRH
