The background rolls arrived safely last week. I haven't tried them all yet, only the sky blue and the polar white. I have to say I'm incredibly impressed. Both give a lovely density and consistency of colour, don't mark easily, and can be tweaked lots of ways in post-processing - they photograph much, much better than the colours appear to the eye in normal light.
