If you thought 3D movies were only a fad that has already come and gone for good, think again. IMAX cameras have been used to shoot 3D films and documentaries for decades now, including immersive content for theme park rides. And the company has just revealed a new fully integrated dual 65mm 4K digital 3D camera that promises to make seeing 3D movies at your local theater worthwhile again.
IMAX is only just going public with the new camera today, but the hardware has actually been in use for a while now. In addition to internal testing within the company, Michael Bay used the camera for filming various action sequences in the upcoming Transformers film, Age of Extinction. So it’s definitely one of those rare times when paying extra to see the IMAX version of a film will undoubtedly be worth it.
