Hello,

I'm in the market for a decent backdrop support system and was wondering if anyone had recommendations. I'd rather get something decent that won't break on the 2nd use although I don;t want to burn money that I don't have.

Anyone have any support system for photo/video studio work they could recommend that is relatively portable and the top support beam won't bend, pieces won''t break, etc?

Thanks so much fir any advice!

Frank

It would help if you would be more specific. Do you need to hang a 10 foot wide seamless paper behind some singles or a 150' translight around a couple sides of a set? The solutions are very different.

Thanks for your reply.

Mainly doing lots of interviews and need a decent size backdrop-thinking 10'. I've been using a black sheet but am switching to either vinyl or muslin. I also have another job coming up shooting clothing/accessories against a white paper backdrop.

Thanks again for any advice.
