When you pull the handle, an auto-lock holds the background exactly where you need it, and when you’re done, simply give the handle a tug and the lock disengages and rolls it back into the case. The chroma green color allows you to digitally cut in the background you need behind your subject. When properly lit, it gives you the freedom to superimpose the background that is perfect for your shot or interview.
