I wanted to make portraits with a black background. After learning about subject to background distance and exposure I was still getting unwanted details in my background. This product filled the bill perfectly. I'm now learning about white background and how to light the white side of this to produce a clean look. If it isn't lit directly the white side turns out grey, due to flash fall off. It is a bit challenging to fold up again. My long arms help, but it does take some doing to get it back into the bag.

I don't no recommend

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.

When short like me, this is large for me to fold. I can do it, but helps to have assistance.

Perfect. Just note how rounded the corners are, so it's really like 4x6. Light and easy to setup.

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

Love this! I can actually get up to three or four people up against this depending on the pose (probably more, if I try). Great for on the road head shots, and for tight spaces!

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

This is an awesome purchase. I use it as a backdrop for CU/MS interviews when the background isn't too appeasing. Hardest part is breaking it down. I had to check YouTube for a tutorial because the written one was no help.

Good quality. A little effort into learning how to get it back into the zippered pouch, but otherwise a great investment.

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

Easy enough to use, I was hoping it folded a bit smaller than it does but that was probably unrealistic. With a bit of youtube, you too can learn to fold it back up.

Collapsible background fits the bill

By Ian

Verified Buyer

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

I've only used the background a little bit so far because of other priorities and demands on my time. It is a simple, straightforward background that is easy to transport and set up, although collapsing it so it can fit in its bag takes some practice.

Good Buy for the Price

By Macky

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

Use it as a studio background for in-house video and photo pieces. Works as expected. Only downside - and this should be expected - is that the fabric background wrinkles. Open and leave out for a period. Or, if shooting with a shallow field depth, pull the background away so you can't see the wrinkles. Tough to put away. Once you get the hang of it, little problem.

Good value for the $

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

I bought this for doing headshots on white. The collapsible background is so much easier than hauling a 9' seamless out to a location. After testing, the background works well. My only complaint is that the white fabric, as others have stated, is not completely opaque, so a small amount of black shows through. Not a deal breaker as it just requires being thrown out of focus and more light to make it 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.
