Comments about Matthews 24x36" Flag:

This flag is heavy duty, solid, and built to last on set. Don't confuse this flag with those flimsy fold out frames by other manufacturers, this flag does not fold down but you gain strength and performance on set. The black cloth is thick and will block out the sun. One side has a matte fabric finish, the other side is nylon. The frame is aluminum (unpainted). The picture makes it look as if it is black, it is not. The fabric wraps around the frame and is reenforced with and sewn with nylon ribbon. Only part of the frame that shows is the pin and support bar. If your looking for TOP quality, this is the flag 100%.

Comments about Matthews 24x36" Flag:

Good black cloth with strong binding and stitching, which will last for years if taken care of easily. Not a good idea to get wet with rain or any other liquid like fog juice, fake blood or coffee as it does not wash easily. Store it in a garbage bag, vinyl or wooden case or the like. Throwing in a few mothballs every few months might not be such a bad idea :)

    Another piece of well made reliable gear from Matthews. This flag will block all light with its thick fabric and the steel frame will keep the fabric tights for many years.

        Contrary to popular beliefe, this is NOT designed to be hoisted onto your pirate ship's mast and flap in the wind, striking fear in the hearts of all you conquer.

        Sturdy, and solid! Really is a good flag!

        I've had no problems at all.

                Comments about Matthews 24x36" Flag:

                First off I buy Matthews because they are quality and they last.
                Second I buy Matthews because they hold their value.
                I use flags to keep light from spilling where I don't want it. Avoid lens flare. Avoid light bouncing and illuminating where I don't want it. Subtracting light from a subject where needed.
                This size is a perfect size, since it is is large enough to cover but small enough to easily move around.

                  Excellent build quality. The 90 degrees design is clever and useful. Very lightweight. As all Matthews products it's of top notch quality.

                    The flag is typical Matthews. Strong no nonsense good old fashion work horse. What you see is what you get. 24x36 is better suite for studio application. If on location, I'd get the smaller version.

                        Its a flag that is made well and serves it purpose. It would be nice if it collapsed also but that is not something this one is suppose to do. So it is big and not as easy to transport.

                          Well made. Reinforced border for long life. Light "SHALL NOT PASS". Works well as anti light for creating high contrast, sucks up light like a black hole

                                I ordered this product as backdrops for studio photographing. Since I am a beginner in photographing, I was impressed with the overall quality of the material. It was neatly packaged and it handles well when it have to hang it on the rods. The only draw back that like some materials, it is a lint collector!

                                  I use this to make shadows on things. JJ Abrams keeps telling me to stop blocking the lens flare with it, I'm not sure why. It fits into a C-stand grip head perfectly, like they were made to go together or something.

                                      This flag is the perfect size, not too large to handle but not too small either. It's well built and blocks light off your lens or can cut a shadow perfectly. Necessary for any grip package.

                                          Necessary to keep a filter flash created background from being 'contaminated' by stray light from subject strobes. Solid construction with no light leakage, but a little weighty.
