Finding out what a certain film was shot on

And one can't do that figuring out without knowing exactly which format (or formats) the production was shot on. And this means more detail than just "35mm" or "HD". Which stock? Which camera? Which lenses?
IMDb can be very hit-and-miss in this regard. I'm currently trying to find out info about the NBC series "Heroes". Everyone here agrees it's very well shot. Yes, but on what!?!?
So, if anyone knows a Web site that has good reference info like this, let me know. K'noath, I'm even willing to spare a few bob to join one.

You need to subscribe to American Cinematographer and ICG Magazine for starters. I think "Heroes" might have been covered in the second. It's a Super-35 show.
Thanks for the swift reply! I'm aware of these mags, and have read them with great interest. My problem is if I need to look up a specific production (say, because I was struck by some part of its photography), I was wondering if there's some sort of 'reference book' that'll have a list.

That would be some list! Probably the closest we'll ever get to that is IMDB, but if you want to be sure the info is correct A.C. is your best bet.
