This is a basic dark cloth. It's size is ok for a 4x5 but wouldn't be large enough for anything bigger. The one I received was not red and black like the one shown but rather white and black. Unfortunatly, the velcro for snugging it around the camera is attached only to the white side making it difficult if not impossible to use the white side out and the black side in. I wish the white side could be used out to reflect the sun and heat and the black in to make things a bit darker. Velcro on both sides would be a nice addition and I suppose you could sew on your own. The black material is something akin to a nylon windbreaker and is very slippery to the touch. The white side is a bit softer and not as slippery but I have to snug the velcro really tightly to keep it from slipping off the camera. There are no weights on this cloth. Wind will be an issue unless you add some of your own. Overall, it's a dark cloth. It'll do what it's designed to do. For the price it's a decent "budget" accessory but you might do better to make one yourself for a similar cost.
Good quality cloth. The fabric is quite thick, so it is a little heavy. But that means it doesn't flap in the wind so much. Some people maybe find it a little too small, but it's ok for 4x5".
This is a good quality focusing cloth. The fabric is quite thick, so it's a little heavy. I should have also purchased a larger one as well. Some people could find this a little too small...
