depends on how many people you are putting in front of them. Probably a minimum of 9 feet high by 12 wide or so.

Where is Brian?

ha, mine was a 53" seamless and it worked fine. sure i'd have loved 10ft. but it woulda been a pain to haul around, and this did exactly what i needed.

i've always thought a portable projector screen would be nice...

hmmm yeah i guess i'd never be shooting more than 1 subject so 10ft wide seems a bit large, doesn't it?

5x10??

just dont shoot with a wide angle lens and a small backdrop will go a long ways!... back up and zoom in... Plus, it does wonders for maintaining/compressing features rather than exagarating them.

I have a 10x20, but its near impossible to use it in our apartment. Quality wise, it looks to be about the same build as the one you linked, which isnt great but it works.

I figured I might as well get a big one, you don't have to use the whole thing.....

I would say if you are impatient such as I, avoid eBay all together.

The 53" seamless paper will work just fine and dandy for a lot of work and it relatively cheap, but using a 107" (9 ft) gives you much more options if you have the space and $$. I love the look and options of seamless paper, but I also like painted muslin (10x20 ft)and have worked with canvas, but it is a pain, IMHO.

I can certainly borrow out the muslins or the paper that I currently have, if you want to mess around with them.
