Excellent Value, Good quality.
on October 25, 2011
Firstly, I received the package just a day after my payment was processed. The delivery company was ONTRAC, and the package came well-packaged and in good shape. It arrived in a thick woven paper package inside a labeled-box within an Amazon box with inflatable packaging.
Yes, it has to be ironed, but let's not whine about that. If you put a bar through the bar loop and iron a foot at a time on each side on your ironing board as you roll it up (and use a steam iron with starch), you will get a very nice, flat backdrop after a half hour.
Finally, the price at $11 and change is unmatched and an incredible value. The quality of the muslin is very good, and not too thin. It feels like cotton muslin. The color is very consistent and looks like the chromakey greens in the professional photo/video stores, though the quality and type of those muslins vary. It's reasonably thick, especially for the price, and transmits minimal light, even when directly in front of the light source. It does not feel too heavy or too light to me. It doesn't feel like canvas, or even jeans for that matter, but it does feel like a kitchen apron, a tablecloth, or a fairly thick bed sheet. All the edges are finished. So why not just use a bed sheet instead? Because many bed sheets are thinner, many are more reflective to light, you can't easily find one in the green color, most are the wrong dimension, they're much more expensive anyway, and bedsheets don't have a bar loop like this backdrop which promotes even droop, minimizing fold shadows.
Boom. Done. Boom. :)
