For the price that I paid I expected to get a very thin material. The material is a good weight and the black color is very sharp. I am very satisfied with this product.

I love this backdrop. It is thick and appears very black in photos. You will get the look you're going for with this one. I would definitely recommend this backdrop to others.

This is a high quality, heavy weight muslin backdrop. It comes packaged in a plastic bag inside a cloth bag. While it was wrinkled upon arrival, I see little alternative when a thicker muslin is the material in question. It took about 15 minutes and wasn't difficult to steam iron the backdrop (which worked well). The material itself is about right for creating the right deep black behind my subject matter. It does its job well. For those who don't keep their backdrop up, I suggest getting a cardboard tube from your local carpet retailer. The carpet is shipped on these rolls and they often have many laying around. Make sure it's clean, cut it to the right length and carefully roll the muslin onto it. Should save some wrinkles.

I used this backdrop to take headshots of a high school theater class. The size was just right for the applicataion, easy to manage, deep black color. I investigated making my own backdrop, but after I saw the low price on this one I just bought it.

First off, let me say that I got this a couple weeks ago for $14.89 with shipping. I see that the price is higher today.

I wanted a black backdrop for taking some pictures at home of our baby girl.

For that, this is great. Especially for the price.

It should probably be ironed when you get it home. Or you can blur any creases in photoshop afterward. (thats what I did).

I put a piece of 3/4" PVC through the one end (there is a hem that you can feed it through) to make my own bar. This way I can roll it instead of folding it... trying to avoid more creases.

It works great for taking fun pictures at home. Kind of like the one I uploaded...

Would like to point out that this is NOT an amazing quality backdrop. Sure it says Muslin but it's very lightweight and simple.

Now that said, I've gotten some beautiful photos with this backdrop. The price is perfect for home use and if you know what you're doing you can get some really great beautiful blacks.

My process:
I shine a really soft light on the backdrop itself, behind my models for a little backlighting & help prevent a dark shadow from my flash. I shoot with a Canon 60D, the 24-135 f/4L and a 430EXII flash bouncing off the white wall in a narrow room. I take all photos in RAW & small.

The RAWs are edited in Photoshop - I up Exposure / Blacks / Brightness / Contrast and reduce Vibrance & Saturation - the final product is a beautiful portrait with a stark black backdrop.

I use a curtain rod to keep the backdrop in place - works great.

Note: You DO need to iron this before using - it arrives very wrinkled but the packaging is great.
I keep the backdrop rolled up when not in use and this keeps it from needing to be ironed.

Quality for this price is so amazing I bought 2 more very soon after. Definitely recommend this for a starter black backdrop!

I just received this today. When I opened the box, what I first saw disappointed me!! I saw black material with a SHEEN! HOWEVER, upon pulling it out of the shipping box I discovered that what I was looking at was the storage case! Very neat! I pulled the material out and see that it is VERY close to the light absorption you'd get with black velvet... but not exactly the same. STILL, I have no doubts whatsoever that this will fit my needs. I'm taking a mini-studio with me overseas to Asia in a few days, complete with compact 7' light stands, three speedlights, two 45" umbrellas (Photogenic Eclipse), a 42" x 72" and 24" round collapsible reflectors, and this background. After I place all this "stuff" in my 30" upright luggage, I will still have PLENTY enough room for 5 full changes of clothes and most of my personal stuff... My other luggage is a 28" upright and will hold everything else... except for my camera equipment which I will bring on board the aircraft as my carry-on backpack (Think Tank's Airport Antidote 2.o) This background is VERY compact, yet appears to be of high quality material. I'll write a full report on this backdrop as soon as I return in January.

I bought this because it was cheap, but it turned out really great! The wrinkles don't really come out all that well, but when I shoot against it the wrinkles really don't show up at all. This is a great product.

This Prism Backdrops 6X10' Black Muslin costs the same as the thin tie-dye backdrops I bought from Cowboy Studio, Fancier studio, and StudioPro. However, it's a step up in quality: heavier fabric, drapes nicely and suffers less light bleed through. My other backdrops feel like bedsheets! It also makes a great backing for my thinner but more colorful tie-dye backdrops. Yes, it shipped with wrinkles and fold lines--after all it is 100% cotton--but a few minutes with a steamer made it smooth. However, it's jet black and normally a couple feet behind the subject and out of focus, so wrinkles aren't visible. If you're a hobbyist photographer you may find this backdrop more challenging to meter than medium toned backdrops: black fools meters into overexposing, so manual mode is the best way to go (set for subject exposure rather than scene).

One nice touch is it includes a protective bag with plastic window to check color. They included a cheap keychain LED too! The only con is the backdrop edge "surge" stitching is a little sloppy. I'm impressed and would love to buy more Prism Backdrops once they come out with something other than black, white and Chromakey Green.
