There's a new interview with Chris Nolan, which is previewed in the LA Times. In it he discusses the title of the new Batman film, and according to the writer, reveals this:

Nolan was most eager to talk about the fact that Warner Bros. had agreed with his argument that the film should resist the current 3-D craze and instead use high-definition approaches and IMAX cameras to strike out on a different cinematic path than the stereoscopic technology that, for better or worse, has become the dominant conversation in the blockbuster sector.

Have Nolan and Pfister won over Warner Brothers? Could we see the third Dark Knight shot in ALL LARGE FORMAT?

The article is more of a preview, and says there is more to come, especially relating to Nolan's format choices. Here's a link to the whole piece:

Until the longer article comes out, I'll be holding my breath with anticipation!

If only there was a Digital Cinema camera with a sensor large enough to do justice to the IMAX lenses ...

Nolan and Pfister used a Phantom HD Gold for some of the high speed shots in Inception.

For a split second, I thought the camera on the link was for SALE for 3,000. Silly of me, but still, a guy has to dream...

I was just about to come on this forum and post the very same link to find out what you were all thinking. What interests me is the mention of high definition formats, I doubt what's currently on the market will hold its own against IMAX, but I'm curious to see what all your thoughts are on the matter.

For $3000 I might be willing to part with a busted sensor. Makes a great desktop conversation piece. Look at the size of that puppy! Excuse the crappy iPhone image.

Nothing quite so entertaining. The sensor was rejected on initial QC. It is VERY hard to make something of this size.

I saw Avatar in IMAX 3D and while the 3D was the best I've seen yet, I felt that the IMAX-sized image did a lot of the work in providing an immersive experience.
