Tamil cinema has never been far behind in keeping up with the latest advancements in technology. Here is the list of the latest in movie making technology we used in our films, before the rest of India did.

Ambuli is the first ever stereoscopic 3D film in Tamil cinema. Ambuli also has the distinction of having been made in the stereoscopic format. 

There has been a growing interest in the Red One camera among our filmmakers starting from the film Achamundu Achamundu. Unnaipol Oruvan that starred Kamal Haasan and Mohanlal were also shot with the same camera. Nootrenbadhu/180 and Muppozhudum Un Karpanaigal also utilized the same technology. Now we hear that Kamal’s Viswaroopam is also made using the Red One.

The upcoming Billa II is expected to be a visual treat thanks to the EPIC camera and as it is shot at 5K resolution, it might turn out to be visual splendor. Also comes the performance capturing technology, with films like Rajini's Kochadaiyaan and Suriya's Maatraan employing the same.

Vijay's Thuppaaki directed by AR Murugadoss is being shot using the latest technology, ARRI that was introduced only later last year. It has to be noted that even the Hollywood technicians have just started using this technology for their films.
