5.0 out of 5 stars Very good for the money, February 5, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Two Prism 10x20', 100% Cotton Muslin Backdrops and The Ravelli Full Size 10x12' Background Stand Set (Electronics)
Just got mine yesterday and set up today so I really don't have a great review of use out of the studio. But I have used other brands like Manfrotto backdrops from friends and yes if you feel like spending 290 and up for smaller back drop stand be my guest. But for what I do for weddings and on site studio picks this will work great. After setting up the center rod goes together great and for one person it was a breeze setting up(I had it set up in under 10min with out the back drop on). One thing that it doesn't come with is clamps to hold the backdrop cloth but not a big deal cause you can grab some from you local hardware store(not the end of the world). The cloth that comes with is pretty decent quality, cant complain. Just be sure that if you out and about doing a shoot to bring a portable steamer cause this stuff like too wrinkle(yes photo-shop can get all of them out but just by spending a small amount of time steaming you have less time on the computer). Pros: Two 20'x 10' backdrops for the money you cant go wrong, the center rods are very sturdy and a little bow but 12.5' of course you will get a little bow, I like that you can remove one of the rods in the middle to make it a bit narrower so its only about 9' wide, on the stands the handles are not cheep feeling. Cons: Zipper is a bit of a pain on the bag, wish the stands were a bit more heavy. Over all I don't have very many cons yet so from just the little that I have played with it I love it and glad that my wallet isn't crying over a backdrop that is going to come in real handy on shoots.

Is the background stand height adjustable to less than 10'? What is the minimum height?
