    #026 Super Collapsible Background - 8x16' - Chroma-Key Green is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 50.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like pulling the cord on a life raft. I think that this is a really good answer to the big roll of paper that you can't hide in your apartment. Kind of joking about the raft but make sure that you have a lot of room before you take it out of the cover. It does a good job and it is a good size which is better because with a smaller screen the subject constantly goes out of the background, and you can't use it. Obviously the best thing is a green room, but if you can't paint your walls green, this is the next best thing. It is a bit difficult to hang it in an apartment but I finally hung it on two clips and light stands. I even got it back into the cover. It even will give you a few laughs along the way trying to do that.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just get me two more... Just want to say how much I love this product. After years of setting up and tearing down chroma backgrounds I'm just loving the ease of use this thing has. I'm able to set it up in places you just can't get stands into just by leaning it up against a wall, entry, you name it...if it fits, you can use this to drop out the background. Only downside is that you will need two people to get it back into the bag, unlike Botero's smaller version, which we got as well. Other than that, I love it and can't wait to get two more for our fx studio.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not what I expected I know I can't be the only person who bought this item, so as a service to others I would caution people from buying this product. On the surface it seems like a good buy, however this product doesn't stand up by itself as pictured. It needs to be laid flat against a wall and taped or you need to use 2 C-stands and clamps. There are NO instructions and it's very difficult to fold back into the circular pouch it came with. Company is based in Columbia, so forget about talking to anyone. I'm sure their 5'x7' backgrounds are much better/usable but I cannot recommend this product. Buy a muslin and frame instead. I'm surprised B&H sell something like this that clearly isn't what it appears to be.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works better than expected This is is large enough to provide chroma-key work for larger settings, but I mainly use it for portrait and glamor shots. As with any chroma-key backdrop, you need to distance the subject from the back enough that you do not get a green cast, and this backdrop provides the distance to do that. I have no complaints.. I can even fold it myself (getting better at it now).. I will definitely be going back to purchase other backdrops from this manufacturer. I really enjoy the product and it's great to take anywhere because it folds up small enough to just toss in your trunk.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quick, Functional, and Affordable... This was almost what we needed. I was looking to make my own portable larger format chroma key solution but stumbled across this product. It served me well for a medium shot but purchased 2 of them in hopes of hanging them from a backdrop stand and somehow cover over the seam to allow me to do a full head to toe walking shot, with the blue border and the large curved corners that was out of the question. I really wish that Botero had place a little more thought into this product in regards to ability to expand or join more than one unit together, or at the very least insure that the unit stands/hangs taught enough the get most of the wrinkles out. All in all it worked OK, I would recommend to anyone looking for a larger format GS that 1 person can put up, bearing in mind that you still need 2 people to pack it away.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Background for Green Screen use I gave this background five stars. It is well constructed and does exactly what you want with regard to providing a green screen background. Watch the youtube video on how to put this monster back in its cage. Do not open this background in a small room. It is like letting out a flock of birds. The youtube video shows a person putting it away like you would open a drawer and put away your watch. Believe me, this is a more difficult process. It is a sturdy background needing a large space...I think that is why they show it outside near the side of a building. It will easily accommodate three to four people.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A lot screen for the buck The trouble with chroma keying a subject, on top of getting it lit right and keying afterwords, is there is never enough screen to have a full body shot. Not with the Super Collapsible. You get a full 8 foot wide by at least 10 foot or more of height, plenty of material for the floor to get your subjects feet. And the best part is that it doesn't need a frame to hang it on, you generally can just lean it against a wall or use a light stand or c-stand to hold the entire screen. However it's basically one size, so you need a decent size room to put in. I once had to set up side ways so it would fit in the room. you can set it up yourself but it tends to collapse easy when lifted so it's a good idea to get someone to help you lift it up. The Super Collapsible is very well made and priced lower than collapsible screens half the size with no material for he feet. Folding takes a little practice to get it right but it very easy once you get the hang of it. It all fits in the included 3 foot bag included. A great product and a great price!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super Collapsible Background Purchased the backdrop to use onsite for various sports and portrait photo shoots. I have only used it once so far since it arrived two weeks ago and it worked as described. Very happy with the purchase so far. Does have some slight wrinkles but they don't seem to cause any problems with software removal. Only con is that the frame itself is very flimsy and takes two people to stand up. Once up though it did support itself leaning up against a wall with no trouble. Fold up was fairly easy as well considering the size of the backdrop.
