I was trying to look up some information on Boogie Nights and some of the techniques and equipment Elswit used while shooting the film. I'm specifically curious as to what film stock and what kind of lenses he used. If anyone has any info about the film or can point me in the right direction, I'd really appreciate it. Thanks.

IMDB says they used panavision anamorphic. That's not super detailed but at least it gives you a starting place.

I've read that PTA and Robert Elswit always prefer slower stocks and use Kodak 5201 50D for ext. and I believe 7217 200T for int.

I dont think either of those stocks were on the market at the time. Vision or EXR stocks are probably more likely. Also I seem to remember a comment that they liked the look of uncorrected fuji tungsten stocks in daylight on "Punch drunk love" so maybe they did something similar in this earlier film?

A few years late, but there's an article about this and Magnolia in the upcoming AC that says they shot this with the C-Series anamorphics. No mention of specific stocks, only that they were slow. They probably used 5245 or 5248.
