IMAX CEO: our new digital 3D camera will offer a thrill ride never seen before
TechRadar.com reports that IMAX made history this week when it announced the arrival of its first-ever 3D digital camera.
The 65mm 4K digital large-format IMAX 3D Digital Camera has been built to give filmmakers an easier way to shoot 3D movies – not just for the big screen but the ‘big big’ screen, making use of IMAX’s vast picture palette.
A director using this camera will be able to shoot complex action scenes in 3D and for IMAX without the restrictions that came with older, bulkier and noisier IMAX cameras.
The fruits of the IMAX 3D digital camera will be seen in Transformers: Age of Extinction – Michael Bay is the first to use the technology – but will the new camera really be able to transform 3D movie making?
According to IMAX CEO Greg Foster it certainly can and when we see the results we will all be blown away.
