Three new series of Hawk lenses from Vantage address new realities in contemporary production. Hawk class-X 2x squeeze Anamorphic Primes and Zooms have an iconic look for Super35 format. MiniHawk primes are lightweight, compact, anamorphically hybrid, oval bokeh Super35 format lenses. Hawk65 Anamorphic 1.3x squeeze Primes fill Large Format and 65mm frames. Cinematographers can comfortably and consistently mix and match these latest sets. For example, you might shoot principal photography with Hawk class-X anamorphics; use MiniHawks for gimbal and drone shots that require ultralight lenses with extremely close focus and no distortion; and then work with Hawk65 lenses on a Large Format camera for vast vistas and title sequences. The three latest sets of lenses from Vantage currently comprise 28 matching lenses. There are 11 Hawk class-X lenses: 9 primes and 2 zooms. There are 8 MiniHawks. And there are 9 focal lengths in the Hawk65 set. They are all available now.
