This Impact Collapsible Background is a small, easy to use accessory for shooting small objects or simple headshots. This background sets-up and folds easily and comes in its own see-thru storage bag.

The two-sided feature gives you the flexibility to take one background to a job rather than two. It also allows you to quickly shoot the same portrait with two different backgrounds, thereby giving your client two different "looks" to choose from.

Note: Colors depicted may vary slightly, due to differences in computer monitors, printed media, and variances in manufacturer's dyes or paints. In addition, this product may be folded for storage a number of ways.

    Collapsible Background - 5 x 7' (Black/White) is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 235.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glad I bought this I waited to write a review until I had used it for photography and video. It's rigid enough to lean against a wall if you don't have a rod or stand to hang it from. The white basically had no wrinkles when I opened it until I left it leaning on a wall a few days. The white is a bit gray, but if you light it well, it turns to the infinity bright white and works great. It came with folding instructions but I ended up watching a youtube video to figure out how to fold it back. I also tested the black doing photography and it worked great too. It's so handy I think I'm going to buy the blue/green one also.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Collapsible Background I often have to use my portable studio system to do head shots. This means carrying my background stand and backdrops. This background eliminates the need to carry black and white rolls of paper that I may not need. If i have to do a simple headshot for LinkedIn or a website this background works fine. The black cloth absorbs all light and I can get rich images with color against a deep black background. The white side needs to be far enough away in order to blur wrinkles. So, if I am uncertain about the need for a backdrop I just throw this in the car and I'm ready. My next purchase will probably be a collapsible background with two patterns.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from An excellent, simple background I wanted to make portraits with a black background. After learning about subject to background distance and exposure I was still getting unwanted details in my background. This product filled the bill perfectly. I'm now learning about white background and how to light the white side of this to produce a clean look. If it isn't lit directly the white side turns out grey, due to flash fall off. It is a bit challenging to fold up again. My long arms help, but it does take some doing to get it back into the bag.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It works great & here's the secret As a portable background for 1 or 2 person portraits, it works great. Wrinkling is a problem, as others have said, but this seems to be the nature of muslin. Its more noticeable on the white side and is the reason I only gave it 4 stars because I believe the manufacturer should provide suggestions for getting rid of them. The B&H product videos by Joey Quintero must be for another brand because they are opposite for this one. In the video, he shows holding & folding it from one of the shorter ends which doesn't work. The way to do this is grab it by the corners on one of the longer sides and then do the bending & folding - which works then. After many failures, I went to the Impact website and saw this in their pdf instruction sheet, tried it and it works.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works as Advertised! The white is slightly off grey in color, but with the correct lighting can be exposed to white very easily. The black exposes as such, and I was pleased at the deep black I was able to achieve with little fuss. One thing I was disappointed about was the lack of the 2nd hanging loop on each side of my background. With two loops you could easily hang this from a background cross bar or vertically you could use a light stand or two to mount it upright. With only one loop, though it's possible to use it these ways, it's not nearly as stable. I will be contacting B&H and see if I got a bad one or if their product photo is inaccurate.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Almost great I really love the ease of this backdrop. I can pop it up and down so quickly and easily. It has quality velcro straps to hold it up to a backdrop stand. Mine came with a white line kind of thing drizzled on the black side that I wasn't thrilled about so it won't work straight out of camera but often times people block it anyway. I like to clip paper and other thin backdrop material to it for use with young kids. It is the most compact system I have found and works great. The bag it comes with won't last the life of the product at all. I wish it were much better quality. The background itself feels very durable. For the price with the EDU discount I was pleased overall.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good for the Price I used this backdrop for a shoot recently and there were a lot of things to like about it: 1) Portability - collapses easily and is very light. 2) No need for elaborate stands or frames (just used a c-stand) 3) Has both a white and black option There are some negatives though: 1) It wrinkles. I even opened it, steamed it, and left it open for hours before the shoot but it still was wrinkled when I opened it again. I had hoped that the inner frame would compensate for wrinkles but it doesn't. 2) The frame warps. It doesn't expand evenly so it's hard to keep the backdrop aligned properly (even with clamps). But for the price, it's not bad at all. A nice quick and cheap solution but if you want less hassle and have the budget it would be worth going with a higher end option.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Need a portable background this could be your solution The Impact Collapsible Background - 5 X 7' (Black/White) works quite well and is ideal for portraits (head shot and even full body). Once you get the hang of collapsing the background it is easy to store. I elected to assign a 4-Star rating only because the fabric is not opaque. If you set the background up in front of a solid wall no problem, but if it is setup in front of a window, light will pass through the fabric material. Other than that all is good only time will tell how the background holds up after repeated cycles in and out of its storage bag.
