Director Michael Bay is known for his visual flare, his directing style and his mastery of blockbuster film techniques. He's also known for trying new things behind the scenes and this time is no different.
The man who used ILM's computers until one had a "melt down"
*, made us feel like we were there in Imax 3D, and handled daily work on an iPad, is now using what's becoming the next film making innovation: A high definition camera that fits in the palm of your hand.
The Hollywood Reporter has published an article that talks about this little technological marvel and the films it's helped create. http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/behind ... aps-561633
The Novo and the Novo 2K
, created by a company known as Radiant Images, are state of the art cameras in a very small form factor, capable of superior high definition, the likes of which we've become accustomed to in the Transformers film franchise.
We've mirrored only a few of images from the gallery on the Radiant Images website, but to see the full gallery, you can click the following link: http://www.radiantimages.com/index.php/ ... o/712-novo
Will this new camera allow for more up close and personal extreme action scenes? Only time will tell, and the soonest we'll find out is June 27th. 2014 when the film is released.
Until then, feel free to join the discussion and give us your thoughts.

*the original article is no longer available from Sci-Fi Wire, so the link to IMDB was used. It's true that IMDB is to be taken with a grain of salt on most things, but the computer melt down is a real incident and visual effects supervisor Scott Farrar went on record in an interview about it in 2009. The rendering of Devastator during the climax of Revenge Of The Fallen was too much for several of the machines as they were pushed to their limit and something had to give. In this case, one of ILM's computers. (NOTE: This is not included in my news posting to keep with the standards of the news posts and keep the articles less cluttered and wordy.)
