  • 2-Stop | 64% Light Loss
Add the soft, diffused glow of frosted glass to still and video images with the Translum Backdrop from Savage. This wrinkle-free styrene backdrop allows diffused light over a large area for a smooth, impressionistic lighting effect, while also cutting down on unwanted reflections to achieve a nearly shadowless look. This heavyweight seamless backdrop reduces light transmission by 64%, approximately a 2-stop loss. Measuring 4.5 x 18', this versatile surface can be used as a light table, for prop setup, or as a background. Objects on the other side of the backdrop appear as softly diffused shapes. Easily cut with scissors, Translum backdrops are also ideal for making silhouettes. This durable material can be cleaned with a mild soap to restore its original whiteness. It comes on a 2.1" core that is compatible with most crossbar support systems.

Which Translum weight would work best to diffuse ...

Which Translum weight would work best to diffuse the narrow beam of light produced by Rotolight Neo 2 LEDs when using them for tabletop photography?
Asked by: Michael
I wish I was familiar with the lights you are using, but I'm not. The diffusion of the medium weight I have used was very acceptable to me. It would depend on the area you are trying to illuminate.

question

How thick is this material?
Asked by: Adam C.
This is the one you want for product photography. it won't show double reflection on your glossy subject. It means the reflection is uniformed. If the diffuser material is not strong enough. when you put softbox behind it. you will see double reflection on the glossy subject and that is no no.

question

how does this compare to vellum as far as transparency is concerned?
Asked by: Lon B.
I've never used vellum but I have used this translum 2 ways. As a backdrop for headshots with a softbox placed directly behind and one in front to light my subjects. The backlight is just perfect for this and illuminates the subject perfectly. I've also used it with backlight only for maternity sillouhettes and it works great for that as well. It seems to be very durable but you do have to be careful not to crimp or bend it as it blanches out when pinched.
