Great frame but has issues

I really like the frames and diffusion panels. Works really well in a c stand. Its so much better than trying to hold the collapsible panels. The only problem is the yellow border...Read complete review

I really like the frames and diffusion panels. Works really well in a c stand. Its so much better than trying to hold the collapsible panels. The only problem is the yellow border around the frame. It shows on any reflective subject. Especially on chrome and polished silver subjects. I will try to put some white tape around it or spray paint the yellow. I cant imagine why they used yellow instead of white or even black??

Received damaged however kept it

Comments about Solid Frame Scrim - 48x48" - White Artificial Silk:

I did receive this damaged; definitely something that happened in shipping. We were able to bend the metal back enough that I can still use it even though the frame is clearly twisted still. B&H did do what they could to make things right and I thank them for that. So far it works as intended. I had expected to be able to bring this on location but is just slightly too big for my vehicle. It's for sure a great way to soften harsh sunlight when shooting outdoors.

Purchased this for my product shots, it's exactly what I needed to diffuse the harsh lighting from my strobes. I based my decision to purchase this after hours of research and reading reviews. Without a doubt, Matthews is the way to go. THANKS!!!

      We use this with our Arri Fresnels to give us a mock soft box feel. Works great and is a great size. Make sure to keep the packaging as it makes a great way to store the frame as well.

        This thing works well. My issue is that I use it on-location and is too big to be carrying around all the time. No fault to Matthews, the scrim works great.

        Many uses. Can use as a defuser, reflector, or modifier. A great value for the $$. Easy to clamp other modifiers to giving it endless possibilities for use.

            Comments about Solid Frame Scrim - 48x48" - White Artificial Silk:

            Bought for my home studio, but thought every once in awhile I can take it on location with my wagon. Works great at home...doesn't fit in the back of my car. I really wanted the road rags version because it collapses, but couldn't justify the cost...yet. Other than that it's a real rugged construction and works great.

                    As usual this piece of Matthews gear does not dissapoint. It can diffuse or bounce light

                      Very sturdy. I do wish they used white edges instead of yellow for those glossy subjects, but it's the best I can find.

                      Been using these silks for years. Finally bought my own to add to the production essentials. Rock solid as they have always been. Can't go wrong with Matthews gear.
