Do you guys know about https://shotonwhat.com?

 

It was founded in order to provide more accurate information than those present in IMDb’s Technical Specifications.

 

I hope it’s succeeding in that regard, although I don’t have a gauge on which to assess that.

 

The design is kind of atrocious, and the search could’ve been envisioned better.

Yes, I saw Adrian mention it in a recent post and that was the first time I'd heard of it. Could be a bit more streamlined but the information is very useful.

I think the best thing about ShotOnWhat is the ability to sort by camera, lens, stock, etc, etc, something you can't do on IMDB.

 

Agree about the design as it seems to be an abnormally large site and sometimes pulls down my cheap little internet connection (IMDB does so occasionally, but many times you just have to refresh)

How about search like this

 

ex. find movie shot on Sony F23 or Kodak 5299

 

google / sony f23 site:www.imdb.com

kodak 5299 site:www.imdb.com

It's cool for sure, but it's wrong quite a bit and there is a lot of missing information.

Led me to believe Maggie starring Schwarzenegger was shot entirely on Blackmagic pocket cameras.

One thing I want to know is how am I supposed to add or remove a film's country?

Example: I want to remove UK from Blade Runner, but it wont let me. What do I do?

Contact them via their HELP page?

Cameras and lenses and stock used are not much useful information for anyone but for nice-to-know trivia those sites can be handy (from cinematography pov it is pretty much as useful as knowing which chinese factory manufactured the raw plastic material for making the camera)
