This is a well made product and easily collapsible after watching the video on Youtube. Be sure to watch how to collapse this background. The gentleman showing how to do this is spot on...much easier than the explanation provided with the background. This background has no wrinkles when fully open. The spring tension is more than adequate to prevent wrinkles. It is easy to lean it up against a wall. It has velcro holders on each side and is well balanced so that you could use two light stands to support it. It does not have a strap to hang from the top. It collapses into an easily transported case. This is a great size to use for headshots or even a 3/4---I use it for little kids. It is not reflective and even with a shadow it will produce a great background to use with the green screen software.

I got this to shoot video and take photos for keying. It works well but it really isn't big enough to use on a person. You have to be pretty close to get the entire shot filled with green. Even then you can only get waist up or so. It's nice, but for real green screen work (with people) you need something even bigger. I do like the portability of it.

Bought this for a college production class in digital filmmaking. Very easy to set up and tight- no wrinkles right out of the bag. Good economical choice for movable green screen.

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

This is a perfect green screen for my use, schools. The reflectivity is great, color drops with ease, set up couldn't be easier, and if you learn how, it is super easy to fold back up. Highly recommend this product to anyone doing head and shoulders green screen portraits.

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

We've been shooting a lot of green screen scenes in the past few years using a large rack with fabrics held together with a lot of clamps. Time consuming to say the least. With this collapsible background, we're ready in seconds! It's made much like the Chameleon we use for reflecting sunlight. Fast set-up, quick take-down and always a perfectly smooth fabric. Nice carry bag as well.

Good Product, difficult to fold!

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

I use this product for self-tape auditions in my home. It's blue on both sides (most are blue/green or blue/silver) and the size is pretty versatile. The quality seems good, I like the loops you can use to hang the product as needed.

It's hard to control when opening and impossible to fold back up, even after watching youtube tutorials.

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

      I like Impact products and own their larger screen also. The reasons for a rating below 5 stars is it takes some practice to collapse these screens....and while using outdoors against strong backlighting the screen can be a tad translucent letting some light through. Minor issues.
      The no-glare fabric offers nice even illumination and is easy to spot clean. The 3 velcro type loops are great for securing the screen almost anywhere. And it's extremely light weight and easy to transport. I recommend it.

      This green screen is awesome. It's very strong and its great at doing headshots. I like how you can fold it up and put it inside its own bag.

            You may want a sand bag or 2

            easy to light

            Only drawback -- The green cloth is a little thin.
            If you're comfortable shooting chroma key, you'll find this to be very easy to work with

                    Said that the screen wasn't big enough to fill the entire shot. Just wanted to give a helpful tip that it doesn't need to fill the entire frame just cover the actor, then you can mask them out. Otherwise, great product.

                      I used to use a piece of green cloth from a fabric store held up on a rack made from PVC tubing. I always had areas that caught the light wrong, and showed through my green screen videos.
                      This is compact, stores nicely and pops open perfectly flat.
                      Putting it back has a learning curve to it. But, there are videos on Youtube that show how to do it right.
                      Worth the money!
