Very true. I like IMAX but im not too crazy about it. Tends to be too loud for my liking. Plus, the closest real 15/70/D IMAX to me is 4 hours away. The rest are LieMAX. Cant really justify that drive. I think its great for documentaries tho and Id hate to see it lost entirely.

The shame is we're just getting to the point where IMAX technology is getting more malleable to work with more and more films.

Prior the cameras were way too big to film anything other than outer space stuff or mountains but thanks to the push from innovators like nolan the cameras are being designed smaller now and can be used to shoot a wider array of things. Which is how he was able to shot close to a half of TDKR in that format.

I'm sure IMAX is not for everyone but like you say it would be a shame to lose this great format.

Yeah and a silent film won best picture this year, that doesn't mean either remain the standard.

But film shows how resilient it has been. I've heard that 'Film is dead' since the early 2000s and it's still around. For now, anyway.

i think if a camera allows you to use more natural lighting( more natural lights) for a movie then this is a good thing. if i understand right Deakins can do this with a digital camera. Nolan is also doing it but sometims its to dark IMO

Yeah, the problem is that many cinematographers are still getting used to the digital format, or flat out don't care about how it looks (grainy blacks, video look)
