I'm interested in direct comparison of the any of the Hawk versus PV in outdoor scenes. Same scene, lighting, etc just changing the lens.

Anyone have any test shots to post?

Thanks

Dont think you will get many replies Panavision Lenses and Hawk Anamorphics have different mounts so you cant just swop them over using just the one camera .

I'm mainly interested in the anamorphic comparison, I think they are all PL mount.

When spending 100million, someone must have said, maybe it's a good idea to shoot some test shots of film stock, lens..

As i said before they are not all the same PL mount Hawk Anamorphics , PV mount Panavision Anamorphics . Yes of course you test the lensebefore shooting but you need an Arri for the Hawks or any other camera that takes PL mounts but you are stuck with Panavision cameras which can include a Arri with PV mount from Panavision , thats it really.

Anyone who shoots tests like this generally keeps them private for many reasons.

Why is shooting a test pattern private? If the material is copyrighted ok, but Fotokem, Kodak, etc, don't seem to have a problem, it would be easy to make the postings anonymous.

I've signed no confidentiality agreements with lens mfg or rental houses, I'll be happy to post my test shots when we're done.
