    In my experience, the size of the photographer is as important as the size of the camera. If you are a big, wide, broad-shouldered human . . . well, perhaps take that into consideration.

    I've become a fan of Joe Cornish's Páramo Dark Cloth. Waterproof, and the red adds a splash of colour.

    Mine is 140cm wide and 1m long, I'd not go any shorter than that for my medium height, I used have it at 140cmx140cm, but that was unnecessarily long. I used a blackout curtain fabric that is black on one side and white on the other; the white is priceless on sunny days. I have an elasticated drawcord around the top edge with a single toggle joining the two ends of the cord to form the tube to hold it on the camera.
