Review: CowboyStudio Photography 10 X 12ft Black, White, & Chromakey Green Muslin Backdrops with Background Support System and Carry Bag

Posted by Gary Ramey on February 20th, 2012

Summary: The CowboyStudio Photography 10 X 12ft Black, White, & Chromakey Green Muslin Backdrops with Background Support System and Carry Bag works extremely well but don’t expect the zipper on the included storage bag to hold up — the zipper broke the first time I used the bag. Luckily, the bag also has straps that help hold in the stands and cross bar sections.

Review: As per many of the reviews about this kit, the fabric is thin and you will need to use a steamer to get the wrinkles out. Don’t hang the backdrops in front of a window or other light source and they are fine. The stands are sturdy enough and get the job done. Even though the zipper broke on the bag, the bag’s compartments are well designed and section off the equipment. The CowboyStudio backdrop kit is a good value for the price.
