Unsure of the next step, I have written to the Seller here on Amazon asking for direction.
I still believe these types of screens are the best, if and I repeat, IF you fold them up properly. There are many video instructions online to assist in that quest, but folding them improperly can be devastating. Oh and by the way, if the frame breaks, you need to be careful of the ends of the broken frame because they can be sharp. I taped mine and am still able to use at least a part of the screen depending on the shoot.
On June 21st, I received an email from Fotodiox explaining they did not know of the Amazon-initiated refund, or would have not shipped a replacement screen. However, in the same email, they did indicate I may keep the screen since this was not my fault. A very generous position by foftdiox indeed. I honestly believe that this is one those rare vendors (sellers) who know exactly how to treat their customers, even when it costs them some money. Great prices! Excellent products, and obviously OUTSTANDING customer service!
Adding a light kit is imperative to get the best green screen effect. Once I added the lights, the green screen dropped right out using iMovie. Easy to replace with another background and look like a professional video/photo. I've been using the green side; have not tried the blue side.
Even without the light kit, I have very little light bleeding through the material. I have a huge window behind my desk and even with blinds open, very little light bleeds through.
The added stand mentioned above puts the backdrop at just the right height for a seated subject, or you can also use vertically for a standing one.
I later bought the Studio Hut 5 x 7 brown/grey background (also left review for that.) That one is great for headshot photos, video conferences, etc.
As far as folding it, yes, the YouTube videos help. But it's really not hard once you get it the first time. I haven't seen anyone suggest this, but the logical way to do it is to put one (short) end against the base of a wall and that gives you leverage. There is no "kneeling on it" ever necessary.
Do be careful when you open it. You have to be in a completely open space with nothing and noone around you. It sprongs out with quite a lot of force, as other reviewers have noted. Nothing to be scared of, but it does almost instantly go from a little circle to a 7 foot wide thing.
It is very portable and light weight once it's folded into its circular nylon (flat) case. The case is like umbrella material, not very thick. I have tried to fit it in a suitcase to check on an airplane, and it will not fit even in my largest case. I suppose you could gamble on checking it through by itself, but it will not fit in a suitcase. I also tried my garment bag, also too narrow. Closed in its case, the circle is 28" in diameter. You could squeeze the edges in and possibly fit it in a 25"-26" wide garment bag.
BTW, I highly recommend iMovie (only for Mac.) I was surprised by how easy it was to drop out the green background and replace with something else. Also to add company logo, banner across the bottom, etc. I also have Adobe Premiere Pro on PC and it's a lot more complicated.
Caveat: I am not a pro photographer, so your opinion of how well the green screen keys out may vary. To me, it looks great.
Folding this thing may be a pain because there are no directions in the box. but if you pay attention to the way you unfold it you should be able to refold it. If not just youtube "How to fold 5x7 green screen". :)
Ok so I bought this kit thinking the stand wouldn't be worth much but I was dead wrong. For $89.00 I not only got a really nice size screen but a well built, sturdy stand as well. The telescoping stand is metal and the clamps are plastic with metal screw knobs. Don't worry though, the clamps are great and doesn't feel cheap or slip at all. The clip that holds the screen up is plastic with a spring clip to hold it in place. feels good as well.
So the reason why I gave this 4 stars and not 5 is because if you have a light pointed at the back of it or if you place the screen in front of a window, the light will show through and It will make keying difficult or just ruin your shot all together. I figured a 5 star green screen wouldn't have this issue but since this one does, I feel it's only a 4 star at best. So simply don't shine a light at the back when filming and you should be fine.
Yes I would recommend this to a friend and I may buy another one for when I need an extra green screen.
