    You could get one of the pop-up ones, I've not tried them but have friends who use them on paid gigs.

    When I need something portable, I use a 1.45m wide vinyl backdrop (reversible, white and grey) and a cheap as chips backdrop stand from Amazon. The vinyl makes it easy to keep clean and free from wrinkles - which is more important when shooting m43 because of the depth of field.

    I have a kit from Wescott Manning I believe, (not at home to check the name). Fits in a bag and comes complete with two backgrounds one beige and one gray both with mottling. It cost about 120. Very compact and ideal for portrait full body and head shots. I just found it. The name is Westcott X drop kit. B & H Photo. Just reread the responses and realized that Clint had also mentioned the x system.
