Comments about Savage Savage Port-A-Stand, Free Standing Background Support System with a roll 53" x 12 Yards Seamless White Background Paper:

I listed "difficult to use" under the "cons" section only because applying the roll of paper to the crossbar and then applying the crossbar to the two stands can be a little tricky if done by yourself (although I've gotten the hang of it). Other than that, this is a quality piece of equipment. Sturdy and reliable. Breaks down neatly and fits into the provided bag so that transporting the stand is extremely easy. The stand alone is definitely worth the price, the extra white paper is a nice bonus. My only suggestion: don't forget to buy 2 clips so that the paper doesn't unroll on you.

Comments about Savage Savage Port-A-Stand, Free Standing Background Support System with a roll 53" x 12 Yards Seamless White Background Paper:

I used this Stand from Day 1 of recieving it while shooting ON LOCATION portraits in Office Buildings, Private Homes and ON LOCATION on the field. It is very strong for free-standing with heavy muslin backdrop. In the field I would recommend a sand bag or something to stabilize it from blowing. But in homes, offices it works great

Comments about Savage Savage Port-A-Stand, Free Standing Background Support System with a roll 53" x 12 Yards Seamless White Background Paper:

I use this to hold all my backgrounds when I'm doing some sort of studio work. I was a little worried about it when I was reading reviews that it was weak, but I disagree completely with them. I have virtually no problems with this stand, and it's at a great value. The only issues I have with it, are the center bar and the travel bag. That bar is a little awkward to use and does threaten to separate if you're not careful (but it pieces back together), and it can be difficult to get the three pieces of the stand in and out of its carrying bag. Other than that though, there are no problems with this background stand. It's lightweight and portable and makes for better photos! Works great with the pre-hemmed Belle Drapes as well. ;)

Comments about Savage Savage Port-A-Stand, Free Standing Background Support System with a roll 53" x 12 Yards Seamless White Background Paper:

I like this stand. It sure beats pinning a backdrop on the wall. It obviously gives you a lot more flexibility on where you can set up as a result. It's relatively light but at the same time pretty sturdy unless you max out the extension capability. On my wish list for the manufacturer when making future models is to develop a restraint for the extension rod when it's not in-place. It's real easy to have the small extension rod to come flying out of the the larger rod during setup and take down of the stand. Maybe something like a twist lock between the 2 tubes would work to keep it from slip sliding away. The other thing on my wish list is some hardware to hold backdrops (other than the white paper roll that came with the stand) in-place on the top and side bars would have been real nice. As it was,[...] had some shower curtain holders that worked fairly well. Good product!

Comments about Savage Savage Port-A-Stand, Free Standing Background Support System with a roll 53" x 12 Yards Seamless White Background Paper:

This background support system is a good basic system. It is lightweight and collapses to a small package for transport. I've only used it with 53" background rolls but it supports wider. The background roll tends to unroll due to the weight of the paper. It would benefit from an unroll-stop mechanism. I use a small spring clamp to prevent the unrolling which works fine. I have not used it with the 10x12 muslin backgrounds but plan to in the future.

Comments about Savage Savage Port-A-Stand, Free Standing Background Support System with a roll 53" x 12 Yards Seamless White Background Paper:

The two stands and the carrying bag are excellent quality. Bonus:the stands could easily be adapted as additional light stands if needed. The cross bar is a bit flimsy, so if you are using this set up for daily location shoots, you might consider the next level of Savage stand for durability reasons. I only use it occasionally, so I doubt it will be an issue. I'm very pleased with this product.

Comments about Savage Savage Port-A-Stand, Free Standing Background Support System with a roll 53" x 12 Yards Seamless White Background Paper:

[...] Unit arrived well packaged and in perfect shape. No instructions included, but it's a no brainer. I had it together in less than five minutes, and that included about a minutes worth of time'explaining' to my children what it was used for. Seamless white paper seems a nice weight, and there's enough included to have get started and for many photo sessions to come. Note: you will need to get yourself some A-Clamps or the roll will just keep unfurling on you. Overall, I would recommend this to a friend. Nice job Adorama and Savage.

Comments about Savage Savage Port-A-Stand, Free Standing Background Support System with a roll 53" x 12 Yards Seamless White Background Paper:

Very good set for the price. Easy to use. Sturdy enough to clamp thin plexi-glass to it to create the back part of a light table. The white paper included is also a good weight for general use. The even white tone provides for a consistant light background color. The paper is light enough to work with, but heavy enough that it does not bunch and wrinkle. The width provides plenty of real estate to move the camera and lighting around to get the desired shot.

Comments about Savage Savage Port-A-Stand, Free Standing Background Support System with a roll 53" x 12 Yards Seamless White Background Paper:

I was very impressed with the build quality and ease of use. The poles are decent but showed flex towards the middle resulting in some sagging in the muslin background. You have to be careful with the poles as they slide easily and could easily knick some furniture or hurt someone. My only real complaint is the lack of a carrying case and if you wanted one, you needed to buy a 3rd party product.

The actual stands are good, but fill a little cheap. The crossbar is extremly flimsy. It bowed quite a bit when extend all the way and using the supplied roll of paper. Also the roll of white paper came pretty tore up in the starting edge. I recommend for a cheap solution. It will do what it is supposed to.

Comments about Savage Savage Port-A-Stand, Free Standing Background Support System with a roll 53" x 12 Yards Seamless White Background Paper:

My photography has advanced enough that I felt I needed a better background for indoor portraits. Not being a professional, I didn't want to spend a great deal. I was a little worried that the relatively inexpensive price would get me something flimsy or not very adjustable. It turned out to be very sturdy and easy to set up. Definitely versatile: the 2 side stands can be used as light stands and it can expand by width and height.
Not sure if this would be good for a pro, but for an enthusiastic amateur, it's a great buy.

We provide on location pet photography. So far we have been pleased with this product. It is very portable and assembles easily. The only problem we have encountered at this point is the stand easily blows over in windy conditions. We had weights available and used them. You need to have a way to weight these stands down, or a tie down available.

I was very impressed with the quality of this product. It is easy to set up and use, and yet retains enough durability that one can hang any appropriate backdrop from the cross bar, without concern it will bend or distort.

I was very pleased when I received the stand. For the price, this stand is alot of bang for the buck. It is sturdy and easily adjustable. The stand easily meets my needs and will meet the need of the type of person who is expanding into the area of background oriented photography. A great buy in my opinion.

Comments about Savage Savage Port-A-Stand, Free Standing Background Support System with a roll 53" x 12 Yards Seamless White Background Paper:

I purchased this portable stand based on the great reviews[...]. I used it for my sister-in-law's 18th birthday party mostly as a nice background filler and fun shots for the kids. It was light to carry and very easy to set-up. I love the telescoping top bar which made it VERY EASY to adjust the width of my white muslin. I ended up not using the seamless roll, but look forward to using it in my home studio. Set-Up and breakdown took about 10-15 each. The stands were strong and the telescoping top bar is a nice feature. Keep in mind that this is a PORTABLE stand, so don't expect to be hanging multiple rolls of paper on it. One roll or one muslin is the max. I would recommend this product for anyone looking for a portable unit.

Makes a good background for still photos. Easy to set up and highly portable. Comes with a nice carry bag too. Not as wide as I would have liked but plenty tall and highly adjustable. Holds up to continous use.
