I found a couple of articles talking about Nolan, Pfister and their first experiences testing an Imax camera.

I really enjoyed this article from The ASC, it mentions the Prestige.

"Nolan and Pfister were impressed by an Imax presentation of Batman Begins — “Not only was grain not an issue, but you could see details that you never saw on the 35mm prints,” recalls Pfister — and they subsequently “stuck a toe in the water” by shooting an Imax visual-effects plate for The Prestige (AC Nov. ’06); at the time, Nolan told Pfister the shot was also serving as a test of the format’s viability in a feature film."
