Transformers: Age of Extinction First Film to Feature Full 3D IMAX

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
Courtesy of an interview on /Film.com, we now know that Transformers: Age of Extinction will be filmed in full 3D IMAX, the first movie to feature the new type of shooting. Check out the whole interview with IMAX executives here, and check out the relevant robot snippet below!

Up until now, every feature film shot in full IMAX (of which there have been only a handful – The Dark Knight, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, The Dark Knight Rises, Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol, Star Trek Into Darkness and now The Hunger Games Catching Fire) has filmed with a 65mm 2D IMAX film camera. IMAX has a 3D film camera available, but most filmmakers find it too big and loud to actually use. (Star Trek Into Darkness is the only of those films to be exhibited in IMAX 3D, but it was post-converted.) It wasn’t until recently that IMAX created a 3D digital camera, which will allow 3D capture in full IMAX. The first filmmaker to use that is Michael Bay on Transformers: Age of Extinction. That camera is much smaller and lighter than the other IMAX 3D cameras and will be used quite a bit in the future. There is no 2D digital IMAX camera, but one is being developed.

Where I live I don't think we even have IMAX so what's so special about it? How is it different or better from everything else?
