This review is from: Savage SV-107X12-56 Seamless Background Paper 107-Inch by 12 Yards, Fashion Gray, #56 (Electronics)
I've ordered rolls of paper before, including big 107" rolls, so placing an order from Amazon instead of the big NYC camera store didn't seem like it'd make that big of a different to me. It arrived just a few days later, and I loaded it up for a shoot booked that weekend. When I got around to unloading the paper, I was surprised to find that the first 6 feet or so were ripped clear through. After cutting that off, we got it up on the roller and noticed that when rolling it out, the paper had a wobble to it, and what appeared to be water or humidity damage, which showed up in big uniformely-placed circles, almost like a Twister board. These really showed up when shooting at an angle, or using lights running parallel to the background. We ended up rolling out a bit more and cutting off even more to try and get the best section, which we ended up shooting against.

All told, we blew through half of this roll of paper just to finish the shoot, which required me to spend a considerable amount of time in post smoothing out the paper. I would have set up a return, but I didn't think to check that the paper might be damaged before using it, and half of the product is in the garbage now. Next time, I'm ordering directly from that big camera place, as I've never had anything show up messed up like this from them.

Good color on the paper, though. I'm happy with the shots that I did get with it, and it catches color really well. Much nicer and smoother images than shooting against pure white. I want to try out the Thunder Grey next.
