* Parodied in the sketch from ''The MitchellAndWebb Situation'' where Mitchell is sick and trying to get some bed rest and Webb, in a very old-school ObviouslyEvil manner, keeps trying to poison him. At one point we see the room twisting and rocking wildly from Mitchell's point of view, and then in the RevealShot, Webb is sitting over him waving a magnifying glass over his eyes.

This is a camera trick used to indicate that the character whose POV we are seeing is drugged, poisoned, sick, injured, or otherwise incapacitated and is about to faint... or die. Frequently this shot precedes a FadeToBlack that indicates the character has lost consciousness or an IrisOut as "everything goes black". Sound Effects may enhance the effect: we hear the impaired character's heavy, labored breathing, for example, or his pounding heartbeat. Wavering horns, woodwinds, and/or strings can further simulate disorientation or drowsiness.

* Done briefly in the ''[[TheWestWing West Wing]]'' episode "Commencement," when [[spoiler:Zoey's drink has been drugged]], in a rare example of POV camera-trickery for that show.
* In ''TheSarahConnorChronicles'' episode "Allison From Palmdale", [[RobotGirl Cameron's]] processor begins to glitch out, and this is shown by first displaying things from her point-of-view, in traditional [[RoboCam "Term-o-vision"]]. A few moments later, once she begins to seriously glitch and forgets who she is, the head-up-display normally shown in her POV is gone. Shortly afterward, she starts confusing herself with a previous identity she'd assumed, because she no longer knows who "she" really is.
