In the audio community this is easy to find, you can compare a wide range of microphones and audio gear via this website:

https://www.youtube....oAudio/featured

(for some odd reason, their main site is down right now)

 

I've seen the equivalent for cameras when it comes to crop factor compares, but has anyone made a website that's consistently shot the same subject with 100 different cameras and has a side-by-side visual comparison?

 

Would help guys like me who lack the resources to rent a range of cameras.

In the photography world there is dpreview (which also compares some video functions), which is similar I guess. In terms of cinema cameras and things like that, it's probably going to be hard to find a dedicated website for comparisons... The industry is fairly limited in the wide range of things, and the audience for such a site would probably be pretty limited. Most professionals are able to do their own testing, read reviews from other professionals, etc.

Zacuto did three series of camera shootouts for 2010, 2011, and 2012 that were very informative at the time, but there is a lot more new gear now in the intervening years.

CML has a range of camera evaluations, which consists of frames from exposure tests.that you can evaluate.

Yea, the Zacuto tests are great! But it's been a while since they've done them.

They also stopped using film as the base for their comparisons, which is unfortunate.
