    #000 Super Collapsible Background (8x16', White) is rated 3.1 out of 5 by 18.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love It, But I Need Practice Closing It I love this background, I really do. But geez is it hard to close. If you go to the manufacturers website they have instructions, but I still don't have the hang of it down, and I definitely can't close it by myself. The portability and ease of setup is worth it though, I have 3 in different colors. I don't have a work van, so I don't have the room to carry around long rolls of paper backgrounds. I can throw this easily in my backseat, and it's light, which trumps the folding issues.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from I'm still figuring this out I bought this background to use for pin up photography on the go. I needed something easier to transport than the big rolls of paper. The first time I actually used it was at my kids elementary school for a presentation on being a photographer. Good: It photographed well, it was easy to transport, It was tall, so I have high hopes it will work for my original purpose. Bad: It was very slipery. Several kids slipped and fell. It was difficult to fold back into the bag. This may be user error. It may just take practice, but it took me 15 frustrating minutes. I plan to get a white rug to put on the tail part so that I don't have to worry about models wiping out.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not Sturdy Product Unfortunately I ordered this product without satisfaction. B& H had great customer service all around, but the productdid not match up. it is made of cheap material that will notlast long. The outer rim is made from a felt like materialthat can be easily pulled. It is not wrinkle resistant, asit claims. It was HUGE. Fully extended on the stand, itthe rim stood 14ft before you could use the train. The outer rimdoes not allow you to fit this in a normal house ceiling. Ibought both the Black and the white, both are see through andallows noisy backlighting to come through the screen. itwould be fine if you were setting it up permanently in astudio, but to travel with it is impractical. All in all not a good purchase and was returned. Expertise: Professional Photographer Previous Equivalent Item Owned: Westcott Blk/ White 5x7 reversible. Items I Recommend: 2 stands and two clips in a very large room.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not quite what I expected Cons: More flimsy than I expected Gets dirty very easily It is HUGE Pros: Doubles as a huge diffuser It is HUGE How I use it: I like to shoot a few 580ex's through this to get a large panel of diffused light. I haven't used it yet as a background yet!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from No Directions? I like this product, I'm using it for when I do on location shoots, but there were no directions included with the product. Normally, simple items wouldn't require directions, they're pretty self explanatory, but it would have been nice to have a little diagram showing how to close it correctly. If you haven't used these or collapsable reflectors before, it may be a little confusing. Also, with the order came an additional muslin sweep..I still have no idea what it's for. I searched for the manufacturer's website for more information, and wasn't able to find it. (?!) I did come across a youtube video that shows how to set it up. It was really helpful, but I haven't been able to find it again or the Botero website. The product itself seems fine, I just wish there was more information!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall usefull product! I do a lot of sessions on location so it is nice to have something that is portable. The only down fall is that the material is fairly light which means that the white is somewhat transparent. It also wrinkles fairly easily.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from My Least Favorite Accessory While I like spring-edged collapsible backgrounds in smaller sizes, this one has been incredibly frustrating. Hard to fold, hard to position (tends to push over the lightstands I use to prop it up), full of creases. Very painful if you kneel down on the edge during a shoot (or if a model without shoes steps on the edge). I finally cut the spring out of it and will just use it as a hanging background. On the plus side, construction quality is good - no tears or wear issues after several years of use.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty awesome Just make sure that you have the 8 foot by 8 foot space for the actual background. the background that comes free with it is actually only a white cloth with a hole in the top that you need a pole for. It's a really nice large background... If only there were one a few feet larger, wider and taller. I really like the long 8 foot trail it has
