A very basic kit for green screen photography, works just fine but could be a lot better
Feb 18, 2010
Westcott Green Screen Digital Photography Kit consist of FXhome PhotoKey 2 Lite and a 5 X 7 feet green screen/cloth (the product description above says 5 X 7 inches which is wrong). It gets the job done, and it's a nice and fun tool to change/play around with background images. This is by no means a superior or advance (professional) green screen tools or image editing software but for purpose like creating greeting cards or web images, it is more than sufficient.
Pros: 1. Easy to install (though somewhat complex on activation process especially the offline/download key mode) 2. Software is simple enough to navigate and to use (to produce photo with the background that you wanted done in just a few simple steps) 3. Diverse theme background (Holiday, Sports, Music, Birthday, Whimsical, Baby, Retro, Futuristic, etc) 4. 100 backgrounds included in this package 5. Standard image editing feature is included (crop, flip, adjust brightness, contrast, saturation, blur, adjust background) 6. 5 X 7 feet green screen included. Not a big screen but enough to do a lot of things (a good start-up kit)
Cons: 1. The software is very sensitive towards different shades of green (that could be caused by uneven lighting, shadow, cloth folding or wrinkling) 2. The company aggressively trying to upsell you with the higher end version of the product when you register/activate the product 3. Object can't be green (and don't wear green clothes) 4. I'd personally would like to see them to include more beautiful scenic/landscape image backgrounds (than what they currently include)
