I'm guessing its the helicopter shots in Colorado; The one following the train, and the push up to the hotel on the cliff.

It was
the scene where Borden gets his finger cut off by his twin. They shot it in IMAX on a tripod then added shake in post to make it look handheld.

Pfister only shot handheld IMAX once: The quick shot of the SWAT team in the elevator in TDK.

Also, there were some aerial IMAX shots in The Prestige which were not meant to be shot on IMAX and Chris "went ballistic" when he found out. This is according to an interview Pfister did around the time of TDK
