The white side is not white. it is almost grey. It have a texture with micro holds were you can see the black side. The fabric is extremely thin.

Comments about Collapsible Background - 5 x 7' (Black/White):

Exactly as advertised - arrived on time and well packaged, as always, from B&H.
The white side is not bright white, it's a bit grayish, but still fine for the quick set-up use. Black side is ... black!

Would Buy Again

By Gordon

Comments about Collapsible Background - 5 x 7' (Black/White):

I use this as a black backdrop, and I bought the two-tone version (it's white on the other side) so if I ever want to, I can have a white background, or a reflector. This is made out of what seems to be cotton. It's almost comical to fold it back up. I have to find a corner to wedge it into, so I can get a good twist going to collapse it.

Be aware that wrinkles will exist, so consider that if you're picky about that.

Comments about Collapsible Background - 5 x 7' (Black/White):

I love this product! It was just what I needed. I love how mobile it is which works perfect for me. Its very easy to fold out and to fold back up. I did notice some wrinlkes on it but it did not affect my photo. I would absolutely recommend this product!

Simple solution for location portraits.

By Kevin

Comments about Collapsible Background - 5 x 7' (Black/White):

It's great for location headshots/portraits that need a neutral background. About twice the circumference of a medium flex fill collapsed, and much easier to transport than a seamless.

Great but big

By James

Comments about Collapsible Background - 5 x 7' (Black/White):

I used this as a backdrop for interviews. It's great but my one qualm is that it is quite big and heavy even when folded. Won't fit into a bag.

Multi use and affordable

By JWB

Comments about Collapsible Background - 5 x 7' (Black/White):

This isn't like folding up a reflector. There is a way to and a way not to. Watch a video on Youtube.
I like that it is a background and a soft reflector. It folds up compact (When you learn to fold it) and transports easily. Cost is low and quality is good. I may buy other colors from this company.

Awesome utility

By Pete

from Annapolis, Maryland.

Comments about Collapsible Background - 5 x 7' (Black/White):

I needed this shipped to Boston overnight ahead of my arrival to shoot headshots on site. I couldn't be more pleased with B&H's service. This product is every bit as simple and useful as the process and customer service I have found with B&H's service since 1985

Collapsible Background

By AJ

from Kansas City, MO

Verified Buyer

Comments about Collapsible Background - 5 x 7' (Black/White):

This is a well-made collapsible background. I do on location sessions and utilizing this background is a convenient way to photograph simple portraits. As with any reflector or collapsible background, there is a bit of a learning curve when it comes to storing it because of its size. However, once you get the hang of it it doesn't present much of an issue.

Need a portable background this could be your solution

By Chief

from Pacific Northwest

Verified Buyer

Comments about Collapsible Background - 5 x 7' (Black/White):

The Impact Collapsible Background - 5 X 7' (Black/White) works quite well and is ideal for portraits (head shot and even full body). Once you get the hang of collapsing the background it is easy to store. I elected to assign a 4-Star rating only because the fabric is not opaque. If you set the background up in front of a solid wall no problem, but if it is setup in front of a window, light will pass through the fabric material. Other than that all is good only time will tell how the background holds up after repeated cycles in and out of its storage bag.

    Comments about Collapsible Background - 5 x 7' (Black/White):

    I only used it once to see how it worked. Used it with umbrella and a Nissin Di700A flash and an Air !1 commander. Worked fine but needed more fill light. Bought second Nissin Di700A flash for my second umbrella. Little tricky folding it back up. Had trouble hooking it up to light stand I purchased at same time.

            Comments about Collapsible Background - 5 x 7' (Black/White):

            Appears to be well made and designed. Easy to deploy and breakdown. The quality of the construction and materials makes me anticipate reasonable longevity. Includes a carry case with window to make it simple to choose the correct panel in the event you have different colors. The stored disc is just under 28 inches.

            Due to its size could be a challenge on location outdoors if there is a breeze.
