The 5 x 7' black X-Drop Background from Westcott is a lightweight and wrinkle-resistant polyester/cotton backdrop that can be used for headshots, product photography, weddings or general commercial photography. It comes with a 2" pole pocket along the top edge and grommet holes on the top and bottom, allowing for easy hanging and eliminating the need to establish a top or bottom orientation. When it gets dirty, the backdrop can be machine-washed in cold water on a delicate cycle and tumble-dried on low. It's designed to work in conjunction with the Westcott X-Drop Background System, but will work on any suitable background support system.

    Westcott 578 reviews

    X-Drop Background (5 x 7', Black) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 67.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect backdrop especially for travel I bought this because I was traveling via airplane to a headshot shoot. I usually use seamless papers, but I knew that would be a pain to deal with and have checked. This backdrop fit easily into my bag, and I rolled it instead of folding so it didn't wrinkle. When it was delivered it was a tad wrinkly but I put in the dryer with a wet shirt and that fixed the problem. There were a few small wrinkles when I got to my destination, but if you have your subject stand 3-4 feet in front of it, and use a shallow depth of field, you won't see the wrinkles at all. It's awesome! So happy I made this purchase.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very Disapointed Let me start by saying I love the X Drop Background system. My White and Chromo Green background in this system are fine. I thought I was seeing things when I opened it first time on an assignment and noticed a slight discoloration about the size of a football about 3/4 way down. This background is also slightly mottled (it shouldn't be) so I am doing lots of work in Photoshop to fix it. I suspected it had been used and returned to B&H but it wasn't, it was brand new and the box had never been opened before I opened it. I suspect I just got a dud. Maybe the other Gray X Drop Backgrounds are fine.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The gray background VERY usefull for images that are targeted for compositing. The gray bockground is very forgiving in that when the layer blend mode in photoshop is changed to overlay, the gray will not show.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from simple and it works very simple - not too much that can go wrong. I wish it wasn't the fleecy type fabric as it collects lint constantly.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from X-Drop Background (5 x 7', Black) by Wes The Backdrop works just fine. The price is right -- the only downside is the frame -- it is a little flimsy. I also have a white backdrop that came with the frame. The backdrops are great for head shots.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice! I do all the photos for my wife's business. She makes a variety of totes, from purse size to messenger bags. I rigged up a new way to hang the bags to better show them off. I hooked up the Westcott Neutral Gray X-Drop via Command Strip hooks. I was a little surprised that it was a bit stretchy, but that made it possible to a wrinkle/lump free background for the images. As others have said, it's VERY lightweight. I haven't had any wrinkle problems in the fabric and the color is consistent throughout. As funds permit, I'll be acquiring more of these.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Inexpensive but quality green screen We use this backdrop and the X-Drop frame when filming video announcements for our church services. It is a quality backdrop that is easy to store and does not retain any wrinkles when stretched on the frame. In our setup, we have not had any problem with the background showing through the backdrop, and it is small enough to easily light evenly while giving an easily keyed area when shooting. The only negative would be the extreme edges of the screen, which can curl and cause some shadow, but again, these are only on the edges of the screen, and they can be eliminated by properly stretching the backdrop on the frame. We have not had the product long enough to give a true test of durability, but with proper handling, this product should last a long time.
