Marc Pature at Hand held cameras just informed that they had purchased the Elite Mark V. Has anyone tested it? Any comments on them?

Good question. I enquired whether Hand held films carried Hawk Anamorphic lenses. they said that they opted for the Elite Mark V instead. I have never heard of them. Only the Elite anamorphic 2000. I am interested in knowing more about them.

That is the Elite Scope Mark IV, not V you are talking about then. 35mm anamorphic PL-mount lenses.

Check the FAQ, there is info on them there. If you have any more questions after that, then may I suggest you post them in the '35mm only' forum. This is the wrong forum.

This is the Elite anamorphic lens set. The lenses are only a few years old, very clean, modern optics. I'm not a fan of their physical design (some primes are almost two feet long!) but they look great.

This is the Elite anamorphic lens set.


So why is this question under the "HD Only" category?

---The Mark IVs have been replaced by the Mark Vs.
If you check the pictures at Slowmotioninc.com, you can see that the wide angles, at least, are physically larger.

heres the 32mm and the 40mm:

Slow-Motion didn't update their website yet, the front page still mentions the Mark IV, although the individual lens information, as you pointed out, is correct..

I've held the 32mm and believe me it is a behemouth. Handheld Films in NYC had to specialy modify a followfocus to get underneath it. It does have some barrel distortion close up, but what can one ask from such a wide Scope lens. It was really fun when I stuck it on a lens projector. Sweet.
