Action-movie director Michael Bay used Imax's massive 3D, 4K videocamera to shoot "Transformers: Age of Extinction." Here's a look at the technology.
The Imax 3D Digital Camera is a 38-pound custom-built tool for making 4K movies.
For "Transformers: Age or Extinction," the 3D camera was lowered rapidly down the side of a skyscraper for a scene with dueling robots.

The Imax 3D Digital Camera can shoot 4K video at up to 100 frames per second.
The 38-pound camera is still small enough to be mounted atop a Porsche Cayenne.
Digital is gaining importance in cinema, but film still is widely used.
