I don't had personal experience to use of Hawk anamorphic lenses, but, i use of russian LOMO anamoprhic lenses with 16 mm cine cameras.
And, I had very good result on footages.
I know abot high quality of Hawk anamorphic lenses and can imagine of quality of image of Hawk anamoprhic 16 mm lenses too.

Those 1.3x squeeze lenses could be fun for 2/3" video, too. Like the Red Scarlet cam (if it ever actually ships).

My understanding is that Scarlet's 2/3" chip would need the 2x squeeze to work best, if the sensor can be unmasked top and bottom (from 16x9 to 4x3), that is.

Did not get my hands on a Hawk :-( but tried them all out an the cinec here in munich. On the SR3 there was still a slight image degrade on the edges but there was also a desqueezer for the viewfinder.

I have shot and will shoot most of my films with Kowa and Moeller 2x Scope lenses. I just love the projected widescreen images but thereĀ“s always a serious problem with vignetting.
I didn't try the Kowa 16H / 8Z yet - just couldn't get a hand on one. The Isco 1,5x works well - it seems that the 1,5x is a better option in terms of image quality for shooting 4:3 anamorphic.
Next step: I think i will try a 1.33x lens with super 16 soon to avoid all the problems with edge caching and wideangle loss.

Hi Vincent,

I had a chance to shoot with 1.3X Anamorphic Hawks last October. I've been sharing some thoughts about them in the thread http://www.cinematog...h...898&hl=hawk

Because there have been some inqueries about the footage, I just uploaded to Vimeo my short camera test and some footage from the movie.

I hope these will give you some answers, and please ask if something comes in mind.

They would work well on the Si2K as well. This is a 16x9 chip AND it's already PL lens mount.

Pity no one in australia has them.
