    Impact BGC-B-57 reviews

    Collapsible Background - 5 x 7' (Black) is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 237.
    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 1 out of 5 by from I don't no recommend The white side is not white. it is almost grey. It have a texture with micro holds were you can see the black side. The fabric is extremely thin.

    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 1 out of 5 by from Not good for me After I read the reviews I decided to try this collapsible background. I tried it for a couple of days. I'm not sure if I got a defective or bad one but for me it was impossible stand it up straight. It looks very flimsy and doesn't keep its shape. I tried in different kinds of situations: leaning against a wall, using a background and a light stand with a bar or even hanging it from a background rail from the ceiling... I never got it in the right straight position. I didn't notice so many wrinkles like somebody mentioned in a previous comment. I also didn't have problems to fold it at all. The case looks like it will only be good for a couple of uses, it doesn't look very strong. I decided to return it, to me it wasn't a good product so I'll stick working with my traditional background support system and fabric backgrounds.
