HAWK V-LITE

Anamorphic Hawk V-Lite lenses hire have become the standard of the Film and advertising industry. They are light and offer great image quality. These lenses have achieved improvements such as increased definition and contrast. The focus scale has also been improved in this new series.

The Hawk V-Lite anamorphic for rent lenses have been built smaller than their predecessors, without sacrificing image quality, they have become the industry standard for anamorphic lenses.

The set of anamorphic lenses is made up of ten focal lengths ranging from 20mm to 140mm with weights ranging from 1.9 to 2.7kg. They cover 27.64 mm diagonal sensors.

The manufacturing process was carried out with the purpose of increasing definition and contrast. Also minimizing distortion. Vantage created them with the principle of telecentricity or telecentric design, which causes light rays to stay very close to each other and parallel to the optical axis, keeping a constant size and perspective.

With anamorphic Hawk V-Lite lenses for rent, there is no loss of light during focusing. The minimum focus distance is 1 meter, constant throughout the set, except for the 28mm lens, with a minimum focus distance of 0.8m.The gears of all the rings have been reduced in size for a smooth and continuous focus.

The anamorphic elements of these lenses are located in the center of the lens, making it more resistant to flares. These flares are less noticeable. It has an anamorphic factor of 2x, which unlike the Hawk V-Lite 1.3x, can use almost the full 35mm image area on both film and digital.

They have a PL mount designed to avoid internal reflections.

These are the front diameters for the different lenses:

142mm: Hawk V-Lite 28mm

120mm: Hawk V-Lite 35mm and 45mm

104mm: Hawk V-Lite 55mm, 65mm, 80mm, 110mm, and 140mm.

The weight of these lenses ranges from 2kg to 2.9kg, making it one of the lightest anamorphic lens sets in the film industry.

These are the different horizontal angular fields of view of this set:

Hawk V-Lite 28mm: 82.3º

Hawk V-Lite 35mm: 65.4º

Hawk V-Lite 45mm: 53.3º

Hawk V-Lite 55mm: 47.10º

Hawk V-Lite 65mm: 39.7º

Hawk V-Lite 80mm: 32.5º

Hawk V-Lite 110mm: 23.5º

Hawk V-Lite 140mm: 18.5º

Although the current Hawk V-Lite Anamorphics hire lenses already perform exceptionally well, further improvements have been achieved. The center of efforts was to minimize distortion and to increase definition and contrast over the entire image. The manufacturing process of the optical components has been further optimized in several aspects. The new lens set is fully matched to all other Hawk Anamorphics for rent. Vantage uses telecentric designs for all Hawk V-Lite optics for rental. These lenses perform equally on film and digital cameras. The engraved T-Stops on the Hawk V-Lite lenses hire are constant from infinity to close focus. Contrary to other lenses, there is no light loss while focusing. The maximum light transmission is maintained throughout the whole focusing range.

Hawk® V-Lite Anamorphics High performance optics rental – Although the current Hawk lenses already perform exceptionally well, further improvements have been achieved. The center of efforts was to minimize distortion and to increase definition and contrast over the entire image. The manufacturing process of the optical components has been further optimized in several aspects. The new lens set is fully matched to all other Hawk Anamorphics. Analog & Digital – Vantage uses telecentric designs for all Hawk V-Lite optics. These lenses perform equally on film and digital cameras. Constant T-Stop – The engraved T-Stops on the Hawk V-Lite lenses for rent are constant from infinity to close focus. Contrary to other lenses, there is no light loss while focusing. The maximum light transmission is maintained throughout the whole focusing range. Less weight – The weight of every lens has been reduced up to 20%. New PL-Mount – The PL-Mount was redesigned in order to avoid internal reflections within the camera. New Focus Scale – The new designed focus scale is ergonomically optimized with an equal parallax-free reading quality on both sides of the lens. The ease of reading has been improved using new engraving techniques. A high precision electromechanical/ optical projection system has been developed and is used for calibrating all focus scales. V-Lite distance scales are optimized Extremely small – extremely high image quality. The new range of Hawk V-Lite Anamorphics rental are designed from scratch and are unique in the sum of their features. The gear ring has been reduced in diameter in order to receive a more direct transmission of the follow focus and is therefore better protected from damage. The position of the follow focus has also been moved back to the camera in order to optimize focusing. New labeling concept – A new labeling concept makes it easier to distinguish the different focal lengths. Every lens is marked clearly with the corresponding focal length on both sides. Also the serial numbers have been prominently placed to help with lens identification. No electronics – The new Hawk V-Lite Anamorphics hire have no electronic components at all and their mechanical construction is extremely reliable.

 

Seven primes are available in BCN Lens Rental – Barcelona

Hawk V-Lite 35 mm / T2.2 Hawk V-Lite 45 mm / T2.2 Hawk V-Lite 55 mm / T2.2 Hawk V-Lite 65 mm / T2.2 Hawk V-Lite 80 mm / T2.2 Hawk V-Lite 110 mm / T3 Hawk V-Lite 140 mm / T3.5

These lenses have been designed based on the Hawk collection, yet they have some improvements such as lower distortion, more definition and contrast, and lesser weight.

Hawk V-Lite 2x anamorphic lenses deliver the unique look and reliability of Hawk anamorphic glass in a smaller package. The combination of their optical characteristics, robustness, user-friendliness, range of focal lengths and surprisingly small size – smaller than many commonly used spherical primes – has made them popular worldwide.

This small anamorphic lens features an extremely high image quality while providing the classic character of anamorphic optics cinematographers prefer.

Hawk V-Lites hire are a simliar size and weight to spherical lenses. Since their weight has been reduced up to 20% from older anamorphic lens designs, they are perfect for handheld and Steadicam work. Engraved T-Stops are constant from infinity to close focus.

High Performance Optics

The new series of Hawk lenses builds off the success of their past with new improvements to minimize distortion and increase definition and contrast over the entire image.

Available for RENT in BCN Lens Renatl.  This specific lens set has shot several full feature films, high-end commercials, and music videos.
