* The ''[[Series/TheTwilightZone1959 Twilight Zone]]'' premiere episode of "Where Is Everybody?" had a [[UnbuiltTrope prototypical variant]] of a man under extreme duress running blindly in a direction that was apparently straight at the camera. It was a camera trick of filming his reflection in a mirror, made apparent when he runs straight into the mirror and shatters it.

* Subverted in an episode of ''Series/ThatsSoRaven''. Someone appears to break the camera, but it turns out it was just a shot from the perspective of a television screen.

* The ''[[Series/WalkingWithDinosaurs Walking With...]]'' series of [[{{Documentary}} documentaries]] by the Creator/DiscoveryChannel and Creator/TheBBC love this bit. Something strikes at or splashes mud into on or snarls into and steams the camera every episode. Perhaps the most alarming was in the episode ''Land of Giants'' of ''Walking with Beasts'', where the ''Paraceratherium'' calf notices the cameraman, chases him, and knocks him over. Some animals even crack the lens (the ''Australopithecus'' throw rocks at it, a ''Brontoscorpio'' breaks it with its stinger), the ''Tyrannosaurus'' covers it in spit, a ''Lystrosaurus'' bonks its head on it, and the ''Dimetrodon'' shake feces out an ''Edaphosaurus''' gut which lands right on the lens.

* [[http://www.nzonscreen.com/title/eyewitness-news---bob-jones-punches-reporter-rod-vaughan-1985 In New Zealand in 1985]], TVNZ reporter Rod Vaughan attempted to interview property tycoon and then-New Zealand Party leader Bob Jones about putting the party in hiatus, while he was out fishing in the central North Island. Jones, who also happened to be a trained boxer, felt his privacy was being infringed, and responded with a knuckle sandwich on Vaughan and his cameraman. In the subsequent court case, Jones was fined NZ$1,000 for assault, to which Jones asked, "if I pay $2,000, can I hit him again?"

* In the ''Pee-Wee's Playhouse Christmas Special'', Pee-Wee's yo-yo hits the camera lens, putting a very large crack (not unlike safety-glass) into it. His response: "Better add a 'new camera lens' to the Christmas list, Conky!"
