Easy setup to replace my 10x12 curtain that just took too long to setup and stretch. Used this this week and easily shaved off 15-20 of my setup time. Canvas "flat" texture.

Fabric is not so good.

We use this outdoor usually for mobile keying of medium size objects and people from the waist up (the size doesn't let you easily to full body, although it's not impossible).

Pro: It's easy to collapse and stores at a good size. Blue on one side and green on the other - which has been useful a couple times.

Con: Still kind of floppy when open, so it takes two people to hold it flat enough to get even lighting. The fabric has wrinkles that are hard to get rid of. Our copy had little white water spots on the blue side, which was annoying. Seems like more attention needs to be paid to the fabric if this product were to improve.

Overall, great portable greenscreen for the price. But you have to clean it up and iron it a bit.m Nowhere near perfect. If you have more money, get something else.

Easy to Use in Tight Space

By Paul Menig

Comments about Impact Collapsible Background - 5 x 7' (Chroma Blue/Chroma Green):

I needed a backdrop for a tight space in my den. The setup I had with two tripods and 9' wide role of backdrop paper was much too much to set up and take down. This is much easier with a single tripod to hold it. Learning to fold it up took a couple of practice sessions, but is straightforward now.

Purchased this item for easy crop work for portrait pictures during Prom, some family pictures, and some head shots at a soccer events for the small age groups. It was easy to unfold, use, and folds up for easy storage in the included carry case.

Pretty tight

Comments about Impact Collapsible Background - 5 x 7' (Chroma Blue/Chroma Green):

It's perfect as a background for talking heads, for instance. And it's much better than chroma green paper. Once you learn how to fold it back into it's bag nobody can stop you.

Great product for mobile green screen

By Brentanamo

from New York, NY

Verified Buyer

Comments about Impact Collapsible Background - 5 x 7' (Chroma Blue/Chroma Green):

The screen keys out beautifully with an even light source. Light and easy to travel with. The only issue I had is that it's a little difficult to fold the screen back up into the bag.

  • Versatile
  • Wrinkles easy to smooth out

Cons

Comments about Impact Collapsible Background - 5 x 7' (Chroma Blue/Chroma Green):

This was my second 5x7 Impact background purchase. The first was the black/white background. These backgrounds are very versatile for use as a background or scrim. They fold up easily and have been added to my mobile arsenal of compact equipment. Clients request that I bring them for shoots where they're not certain how things will evolve and friends routinely ask to borrow them. And I take pure joy from watching newbies try to fold them.

    Large 2-sided matte cotton panel

    By Ezravision

    from ANTIOCH, CA

    Comments about Impact Collapsible Background - 5 x 7' (Chroma Blue/Chroma Green):

    Even though I saw the dimensions when I bought this, it was a surprise to see how giant this thing is. It easily can be a background for a standing tall person while leaned against a wall behind the subject (if it is not windy). The cotton fabric may attract dust and stains because of the matte surface, so the included pouch is handy while in transport.

    This product is great for doing indoor green/blue screen work. I have yet to try and use it for anything else.

    I love how big it is and how easy it is to set up.

    I can see folding it and unfolding it could create creases and potentially be a green/blue screen nightmare, just be aware of this.

        Good item. The carrying bag seems to be of reasonable quality, and the window in it allows me to quickly determine whats inside. The background is relatively flat when open (doesn't twist or distort very much at all) and is easy to fold.

        Larger than I thought.

        By Al

        from Philadelphia

        Comments about Impact Collapsible Background - 5 x 7' (Chroma Blue/Chroma Green):

        I had a 5x7 green screen cloth that came with my starter kit, but upon receiving the reversible background, man was I pleasantly surprised. I hung it on an old background stand and it worked perfectly. The height allows a whole body to be shot and I'm 6'9. With this I won't be ordering a larger green screen for a while. Very versatile.

          The frame around the cloth makes if perfectly streched and therefore produces a smooth image.
          Its foldable hability makes it pratical to take to any place.

              It is exactly what I expected. The quality seems good and it is easy to deploy. I was concerned that the fabric would be wrinkled, but it looks nice and flat when the frame stretches it tight. It should be just large enough to make a backdrop for medium shots -- perfect for interviews.

                    This is my 3rd Impact background.
                    Does everything it should. Am a pro
                    and use it in multiple locations.
                    On one job, set up 250 times.
                    Worked great!
