"ShotOnWhat? has already saved me many hours of trawling through complicated web searches. The pace at which camera, lens & post technology is advancing right now makes it crucial as a film maker to reference the images we see in the cinema or the small screen back to the combination of tools used to create them. With so many potential combinations, the only way to really stay ahead of the game is to be constantly making these connections between the tools and the images. ShotOnWhat? is now my go-to source for this information."
