Westcott 579 Overview

  • 1Description

The 5 x 7' green screen 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 579 Reviews

    X-Drop Background (5 x 7', Green Screen) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 84.
    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 4 out of 5 by from Decent. Note blue color shift. Yes, its flimsy, and best suited for tight spaces, which it fits into nicely. The gray media is slightly wrinkly, and will benefit from steaming if you need it truly wrinkle free. The low price reflects all this. But whats really interesting is the color of the gray. Its about 1100 Kelvin bluer than neutral gray. Thats a 1/2 CTB shift! Even the demo swatch on this post meters at 93/101/111! Its a bit blue too! I find that correcting the front light(s) with 1/4 CTB does the trick and makes the gray backdrop very neutral. PS-Use the flat side (with the label). (The back is fuzzy.)

    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 5 out of 5 by from X-Drop Background, 5x7 Serenity I found out about the X-Drop Kit and backgrounds recently and decided to purchase the kit with two additional backgrounds. Portrait photography is my passion. This product is exactly what I was looking for - so convenient to set up and carry with you.

    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.

    Will this work with the x drop system that came ...

    Will this work with the x drop system that came with the 5x12’ drop? I don’t need a longer drop and would prefer to go with 5x7’ for my second drop. The description says this 5x7’ works with the 5x7’ system but looks like the same only no material for a “floor drop”
    Asked by: Sunshine
    Yes it will. There is one X-Drop frame (Westcott Part #570X) and both the 5x7 and 5x12 work with that frame.

    Is the White a pure white? Does it bounce light well, or does light pass through it? I will be using this as a reflector for photographing rooms.
    Asked by: Robert Francis S.
    Yes it is a pure white. It will work really well as a large reflector.
