Transformers 4: Age of Extinction was filmed in an Ultra HD 4K IMAX Camera and This is the Spectacle Produced
y Stephan Jukic – September 15th, 2014
Michael Bay is apparently a major fan of using the very latest technology for his immensely popular Transformers series of movies. The latest of these, Transformers 4: Age of Extinction, was filmed entirely with the use of a new type of ultra-high powered 4K camera known as the IMAX 3D Digital Camera.
This beast of a video production rig was put to use by the maker of the movie partly because of the exquisite “Cinema Grade” “True 4K” video shots it produces at a resolution of 4096 x 2160 pixels of Ultra HD but also because the 3D Digital Camera can film completely 3D ready footage on the fly, as its name suggests.
The major promise of the IMAX 3D Digital is that the sequences filmed by the machine will expand to fill much more of the total screen size when used in IMAX theaters in a 1.9:1 aspect ratio and can then be made into 3D movie sequences with a minimum of external editing.
Because of these shooting qualities and because of its overall portability and relatively compact size (the camera weighs less than half as much as competitor products with the same qualities), action movie director Michael Bay has used the machine to film his latest Transformers movie and really capture the detail of all of its incredibly intense action scenes and deeply detailed visual sequences.
According to the creators of the IMAX 3D Digital Camera, “We’re blown away by what Michael Bay has been able to do with out new 3D Digital cameras. With “Transformers: Age of Extinction”, he takes IMAX 3D to the next level –putting moviegoers smack into the middle of the action with the autobots and Mark Wahlberg as audiences have never seen before”
