Hawk C-series VS V-lites

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!

I'm currently in pre-production for a short set for principal photography by the end of the summer.
We've decided to shoot anamorphic and had a chance to try the Hawk C-series today at our local rental house.

Unfortunately, we won't be able to try the V-lites right now as they are away until just a couple of days before we start.

I found the C-series to have a classic anamorphic look --- pretty low contrast, flary but not extremely, a bit soft until around T5,6.
To those of you who have shot on both of these sets -- how would you describe the look/characteristics of the V-lites compared to the C-series?
Sharper? More contrast? Bokeh?

The C-series rent for about half the amount of the V-lites, but I guess that mostly has to do with the fact that the C's are older. Right?

Any shared thoughts and/or experiences etc would be very much appreciated!
