Westcott 579K overview

  • 1Description

The 5 x 7' green screen X-Drop Background System from Westcott is a lightweight package that is good for travel. This kit can be used for headshots, product photography, weddings or general commercial photography in the studio or on location. The 100% polyester fabric comes with grommet holes on the top and bottom, making for easy hanging and eliminating the need to establish a top or bottom orientation. When it gets dirty, it's readily machine washable in cold water and tumble dried on "low".

The background support stand contains telescoping arms and legs and is characterized by quick setup and tear down capability. It's lightweight and will hold the fabric taut. The expandable carrying case is capable of holding the X-Drop System as well as up to three backdrops.

    X-Drop Kit (5 x 7', Green Screen) is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 134.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lightweight & Mobile, I might buy two. Some of the biggest stregnths with this kit are its mobility and the room for additions. I ended up buying the optional black cloth. It comes in a compact bag with room for aditional backdrops. The only negative comment I can give would be in regards to the thickness of the cloth. If you have a strong light source (window, bright TV, lamps) it can, will shine through. Solution: you can place two backdrops on the same frame. You have have to remember to purchase an additional cloth or make your own. Over all, I am very impressed with this rig and I am thinking about buying another to use as a giant bounced light source buy purchasing the white muslin cloth.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Lightweight backdrop for portraits I use this backdrop to take company headshots of our employees. It is lightweight and sets up in just a couple of minutes. The black backdrop is made of velvety material that is not reflective, but it is hard to get wrinkles out. Can be stretched on the frame to minimize wrinkles. X-frame has a pretty large footprint. Frame construction is poor, and the rivets holding the legs together broke on mine after it was bumped into once. I'm now holding mine together with twist-ties, which works fine. The whole unit is very lightweight and portable. The black backdrop can be used unlit for a black background, or you can put a light on it to make it varying shades of gray.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great Innovation, Poor Execution The X-Drop Kit is a truly innovative piece of gear for location portrait photographers or for those who haven't the space to set up a proper backdrop system. It's super easy to set up and it is indeed extremely lightweight. Unfortunately, the overly flimsy and lightweight construction comes at a high cost to those who expect they'll get years of use out of the Kit. While gently setting up the X-Drop Kit for what was to be only the fifth time using it, I noticed one of the small rivets had popped out leaving the entire leg mechanism unstable. Thankfully, my assistant fixed it with a large safety pin and we were able to finish the shoot. Bottom line: if you're a pro who relies on consistent use of their gear, this is not a wise purchase. I hope Westcott will continue to bring us innovations like this but be far more considerate of the longevity of their products. A professional grade version of the X-Drop Kit would be a welcome addition to my location bag.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light, Easy, Fast, what else do ya need? I use this for executive/business headshots. In an environment where you have to work fast the X Drop is a lifesaver. For years I've used 4ft seemless--it's so annoying and is always wrinkled and not to mention the fact that it's not as wide as the X Drop which is hugely helpful for tight spaces so that you can cover from frame edge to edge. Only 1 minor downside is the back leg of the tripod sticks out pretty far keeping you from putting it up against the wall. But I easily just collapse that leg and lean it or secure it on a stand to put it closer to the wall--Works JUST fine! LOVE how compact it is!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from The best bang for your buck The quality for price is on point. I bought two of these about 4 years ago and have used them weekly since. Recently bought two more because those old ones fell over (multiple times) and broke when I had them outside in the wind for a video shoot (user error). With the two new ones I bought I could tell they had improved the carrying case (which is slightly bigger than before) The green screen is blanket-like and does not wrinkle easy and if it does it flattens out quick when stretched out. Overall great product. Has served us well for the past 4 years and with these two new ones, hopefully another 4 years.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it... Other than remembering not to put the center pole taller than the side poles, I love this product (I used on a shoot and couldn't figure out why I had a wrinkle, until I started taking it apart - oops). The black would let light through if against a window/light source (so you might have to double up, which I think you could easily do with your own fabric and grommets), but if against a solid wall, works great. Love the compactness. The bag is wimpy though. No way you'd cram more backdrops in there, and the zippers are weak. First time packing up, they jammed and seams started bursting. If they could improve that, 5 stars.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy Handling - And I Am A Beginner I use this green screen for work. I create webinars and needed a more professional background. This is the first time I have ever used a green screen or actually even seen one to be honest but it was super simple to figure out and my videos have been coming out amazing. I love that even though I don't know what I am doing the set up and storage for this is super simple. I looooove that I can take it apart real quick & store it in it's bag. It takes up no room at all. I was just shocked at how much room it actually does take up when it is all put together. I didn't know what to expect.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Skip..Seriously...Too flimsy :( Bought the kit, never used it...Dear Lord, I don't believe this thing came from Westcott?? X-frame is really lightweight, but suuuper flimsy...Feels like it's going to break. Wish they doubled the thickness of supporting aluminum bars to make them stronger, and avoid bending. Plastic bracket that holds those 6 bars, pure joke...Once you mount the blanket that comes with the kit you can see what I'm saying, the whole thing looks like it's going to break. Plus, fully extended, frame is still not wide enough to fully stretch the fabric...I have never used nor I will, other than fabric only with different munting solutions...
