Hello,

I am looking to rent a set of Hawk V-series in USA (Shooting in California) and would like to know what options do I have, besides Camtec.

Any leads will be greatly appreciated.

All the best,

Maybe its best to contact Vantage Film in Germany (www.vantagefilm.com), they are the manufacturers and can certainly tell you whom in the US they sold their lenses too.

I fairly sure that the only place is going to be Camtec. I'm not even sure who in New York or Florida might have the V-series. If you're really against using Camtec, then Max's suggestion of contacting Vantage Films is going to be your best bet. Just out of curiosity, what's wrong with Camtec. I used them for a long time when I was starting out and found them to be quite good. Perhaps things have changed?

Hello and thank you all.
No problem at all with Camtec they are a very nice company it seems. I am just staring to look around for these lenses. I checked out Camtec's set and was just curious to know who else rented these lenses in U.S.A. shopping around....
A few recent movies have been shot with these lenses and it seemed strange that only one set existed of them in U.S.A. but I guess that's how it is.
I did contact Vantage about renting direct from them but they referred me to Clairmont Camera. But Clairmont does not have the V-series only the C's.

Thanks again for the info.

Clairmont Camera is offering Hawk V-Series Anamorphics since this summer. Please contact Denny Clairmont or Irving Correa.

OK that is good news.
Very strange that I called the Hollywood office on Monday and they where very clear with me that they only have the C's. I spoke directly to someone in the lens department supposedly.

I will call again and talk directly to Denny Clairmont or Irving Correa.
