Great set for the money,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Cowboystudio Photography Black and White 9ft x 15ft Muslin Backdrops with Support System and Carry Bag (Electronics)
My first impressions after my initial use are very positive for this product. The stands are adequate, crossbar is a little light and bows wide open, bag is great, overall worth the money. If I had one knock on the product it is the thin Muslin sheets. For $95 I wasn't expecting this nice of a set though. While it isn't for the working professional, as an advance amateur I was able to get studio quality shots right in the comfort of my living room. Just make sure this is up against a wall so there is no light coming through the back of the sheets as the white Musin is pretty thin (unless you are strobing the backdrop from behind of course).
The stands and crossbar take less than a minute to setup. You will spend far more time ironing or steaming the backdrop which is to be expected.
reccomendation : get small plastic clamps to hold the backdrop tight from the top and sides ($.50 a piece at harbor freight). I used the black Muslin over the bar and the white attatched with the clamps to minimize light from a rear window. This did not affect the pics other than giving a smooth backdrop
Overall, I was very impressed for the money. I would give 4.5 stars, but will give 5 since you can't give halves. If you don't expect a heavy duty set (who would for < $100) then this is a great starter kit that can easily be taken down or moved. It is more than adequate to get professional result.
