Folded, the kit folds into the included bag that is about 3'-4" long and about 6" in diameter. The stands have 3 telescoping sections and extends up to about 10'-4", with a footprint of 3'-4" each. The cross bar is made up of four 3' sections, so it can be 6' (you have to use a minimum of two) to 12' wide. The cross bar tubes have an outside diameter of about an 1-1/8". There is a bit of flex in the assembled crossbar when you point load it in the very center, but it isn't apparent at all when a roll is mounted on the bar.
A fantastic portable stand for the money, I would highly recommend this kit.
My only gripe (very minor, and no fault to the makers) might be that the legs are not air-cushioned. Of course, I'm not paying for air-cushioned legs either, so it's more a personal preference than the fault of the manufacturer.
Kudos for a great product!
I also use this in my portrait studio.
Vaulted ceilings? No problem as the stands can elevate the background at least 10' high, taller than any of my clients.
I typically use only 3 of the 4 3' cross beam sections, using this as a 9' portable background support system.
I had three requirements that needed to be met:
1. The stand must extend to at least 10'.
2. It had to support a heavy canvas 10x20 muslin.
3. The stand system had to be easily transportable.
The Phototek 12' Portable Background System meets all of my requirements.
This system easily exends to 10' high and will easily support a canvas muslin. I have also had a 10' wide heavy velvet backdrop on this system and it was very stable. No swaying at all!
The background system comes in a heavy duty canvas case with individual pockets for each tripod and each cross bar.
It is very simple to set up the system and you can do it in a few minutes while chatting with your client!
My only gripe? It would be nice if the stands were air cushioned.
