Backdrop Support:Tripods vs. Autopole. Manfrotto vs Westcott vs Photoflex
I'd like to purchase a backdrop for cloth and/or paper. This will be in a typical room of my house with fair amount of room and 8 ft ceiling. This will be for photographing family. I want a semi-permanent system (no holes or mounting). I want something sturdy and well engineered, and something that is going to last many years I'm considering tripod stands with a horizontal bar. I'd like something sturdy that doesn't require sand bags. I don't need to be changing backdrops often.
I' think I might like air cushion. I'm considering the Manfrotto 314B, Westcott FJW9014, Photoflex Pro Duty (without cushion), or something in that range.
Manfrotto autopoles might be considered too. But I don't need the conveniences of switching backgrounds, as I presume I can stick with one or two backgrounds. But they also might be sturdier with small kids, or careless adults.
I'm open to opinions and thoughts....
