Long recognized as the best portable background support system made, our Model S-4010 BACKGROUND-SUPPORT-SYSTEM-IN-A-BAG can do it all. This unique package will support seamless paper up to 11 feet wide, as well as 12 foot muslins. And it is the perfect tool for mounting the Backgrounds-In-A-Bag, accommodating both the 8' and the 12' width of our very special product.
It's four-section crossbar, equipped with positive locking elements is made up to permit its use as a two-section, three-section or four-section system to accomodate even the most limited studio space.
The system consists of two heavy duty professional support stands together with a heavy duty canvas carry bag with a shoulder strap. The Background Stands are professional quality units, featuring positive locking levers and tubular legs.
Although the S-4010 system can be extended to 10.5' in height and 12.5' in width, the entire package closes down into its 40 inch carry case with a total weight of just 13 pounds.

I really like this setup. It holds up a muslin backdrop without any problems. The adjustable height is nice for lower areas. The only con I can find is that the main support bar is held together, once assymbled, by allen screws, which require a wrench to turn. I would have rather had push button or turn to lock type things.

Not the best but does the job.
Overall the product does what it is intended to do which is a convenient and portable way of holding a back drop. It lack air cushioning so watch out when you loosen the tension knobs. The stand will come crashing down if you're not paying attention. Also, the lock for the legs pinches the tube making it difficult to extend the poles when the leg are locked. I've used a friends lower cost JTL system and it was much better designed. I would not reccomend the Photek system.

We use this for location work all the time. Easy to setup, great carry case. It just works.
Very nice product. Super easy to put together (no tools). Feels really strong, yet super portable. Would def recommend to friends.
I bought this unit so I could shoot a wedding and have a backdrop with me for portraits. It's amazing deal for the price, and very light for the amount of strength the pole can hold. Very easy to put up and I was happily surprised at the quality of the stands. I highly recommend this over other more expensive kits. Very portable.
After a long debate on what BG support system to buy, I decided to with the Photek. Even though there is not a valid video review on this system, I went with my gut feeling and was happy to made the purchase. Two stands, crossbar, and bag. Very Light weight and easy to take down and put up. Very solid material used on the stands and bars. Very good support system overall. The only thing this BG support system or Photek as a company can improve is the small sections on the legs, wish they could have used the same material as the bars, is aluminum, but it seems weak.
Only reason it got 4 stars and not 5 was because I needed it to be a smaller backdrop stand for a tight studio area. But I was able to make a modified bar to fit when used in smaller spaces easily.
A very nice background stand. Sets up quickly and is quite sturdy. No complaints.
This Photek system is built to last a long time. Though it's sturdy, it is also light...light enough for me to pack when I go to field venues to shoot. The tote back is also well constructed and perfectly designed. The tote bag is the icing on the cake for this product.
it was such a help easy set up and take down.We will use it often.
works well for my portraits, no complaints
I've used many portable backdrop support systems in 30 years of photography and this Photek system is superior to many higher priced units.
