{mosimage}Catching up on Transformers 3 filming news! First up, Michael Bay corrects the rumor of TF3 being converted to 3D, saying that they are using actual 3D cameras.

People have no idea how hard we have worked to bring 3D filming into live action shooting. We have invented rigs and systems to place 3d cameras like no other live action movie has done before. The proof will be noticed on the final product.

Second is that those interested in helping up the production team at the Space Coast in Florida, they can send their resumes to the email that's linked on the page. Filming down there will tentatively begin on September 19.

Third, Tyrese Gibson has Tweeted a photo of some mayhem that might show up in the film from his and fellow humans' perspective while shooting in Detroit. Regarding a rumor where there will be some scenes occurring during the 1960s, a poster at the Shoot For The Edit forums has posted that a friend is being fitted into clothes of that era. Plus some details about locations that'll be used in Washington, D.C., according to the Washington Examiner:

The Walter E. Washington Convention Center will be used for some of the filming, a source tell us, and a number of scenes will be filmed around the National Mall and monument areas. DAR Constitution Hall and the Red Cross building also will have cameos.
