Kudos for a great product!

The case is very nice, as compact as it can be, and is easily slung over your shoulder like a tripod bag.

It would be nice if the stands were air cushioned.

The options for selecting a background stand system are endless. Between the online camera stores and ebay, you will find over 20 different options. So how do you know which one to buy?

I had three requirements that needed to be met:

1. The stand must extend to at least 10'.
2. It had to support a heavy canvas 10x20 muslin.
3. The stand system had to be easily transportable.

The Phototek 12' Portable Background System meets all of my requirements.

This system easily exends to 10' high and will easily support a canvas muslin. I have also had a 10' wide heavy velvet backdrop on this system and it was very stable. No swaying at all!

The background system comes in a heavy duty canvas case with individual pockets for each tripod and each cross bar.

It is very simple to set up the system and you can do it in a few minutes while chatting with your client!

My only gripe? It would be nice if the stands were air cushioned.

It is easy to set this up in my client's homes in just minutes.
I also use this in my portrait studio.
Vaulted ceilings? No problem as the stands can elevate the background at least 10' high, taller than any of my clients.
I typically use only 3 of the 4 3' cross beam sections, using this as a 9' portable background support system.

Folds away nicely in an included bag, quite sturdy (I have only tested it up to 9' seamless) indoors, but I wouldn't use it outdoors without a fair amount of weight to keep it steady.

Folded, the kit folds into the included bag that is about 3'-4" long and about 6" in diameter. The stands have 3 telescoping sections and extends up to about 10'-4", with a footprint of 3'-4" each. The cross bar is made up of four 3' sections, so it can be 6' (you have to use a minimum of two) to 12' wide. The cross bar tubes have an outside diameter of about an 1-1/8". There is a bit of flex in the assembled crossbar when you point load it in the very center, but it isn't apparent at all when a roll is mounted on the bar.

A fantastic portable stand for the money, I would highly recommend this kit.

This is a sturdy stand with great portability. The vertical stands work fine and goes up in a snap. The carrying case is wonderful - easy to use and holds everything perfectly! The horizontal cross members on my system did not fit well into each other. 2 were so tight I was unable to rotate them into position. I should have sent them back (if they don't rotate into proper alignment, they won't line up with the vertical stands). After a couple of hours of rework in my shop, I got all 4 cross members to fit well. Since some fit better in one position that another, I numbered the mating sections that fit best with a Sharpie. Now I can assemble the system quickly and with great results. Highly recommended. Be sure to test fit the cross members when you get them.
