Added DiffLines:

* Creator/MatthewVaughn uses a pretty stylized version of this throughout his action films. There's plenty of physical handheld camerawork, but other shakes are added in editing, resulting in unique cinematography that you can't really find from any other director.


Added DiffLines:

* 90 percent of ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamOrigins''' cutscenes are depicted as if they were filmed by a handheld camera...during a small earthquake.
* ''Franchise/MetalGear'' gets into this starting at ''[[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid2SonsOfLiberty Sons of Liberty]]''. It becomes even more obvious in ''[[VideoGame/MetalGearSolidVThePhantomPain The Phantom Pain]]'', since its cutscenes are usually [[TheOner oners]] stylized as being filmed with handheld cameras.

** There was one notable instance in Film/TheDarkKnight when it was used. Namely, the scene where SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker is [[ColdBloodedTorture torturing the Batman imposter.]] [[JustifiedTrope Justified]], as the scene was the shot by the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IhpCfSslq1w Joker using a hand held camera.]] Also provides a convenient excuse for a GoryDiscretionShot.

* Used for effect in ''Film/TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey'' in the third act: "My God, it's full of stars!"

* Used for effect twice in ''Film/TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey'' in ''Film/TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey'', during the third act: "My God, it's full of stars!"Tycho monolith scene, and when Bowman gets a new helmet and proceeds to disconnect HAL. Kubrick did his own camera work for those scenes, lugging a huge 70mm film camera on his shoulder.

Added DiffLines:

* Justified in ''Film/HardcoreHenry'' as the entire movie is shot from the perspective of Henry who's in near constant fights. So when he's in a fight against several enemies, the camera whips around a lot as Henry tries to keep track of everyone.

->''"Shaky Cam. [[PrecisionFStrike Fucking]] shaky cam. At some point someone somewhere told Hollywood that people like incoherent incompetent camera work blinding the audience with multiple cuts and assaulting us with nothing but a barrage of sound effects that are supposed to subconsciously tell us that something is happening on-screen."''

Of course, jitter cam has also managed to gather a large {{Hatedom}} from people who feel that it's overdone and used to cover up badly choreographed action scenes. Like many things, it isn't inherently a bad thing to use but when used in excess (either ''too'' shaky or in too many scenes) many people will describe it as "headache" or "nausea" inducing, especially when viewed on a large movie screen or in 3-D, or remark that it becomes impossible to tell what's going on.

* Some 75% of ''Film/LesMiserables2012''.

to:

* Some 75% of ''Film/LesMiserables2012''.''Film/LesMiserables2012'', especially during the "Building a Barricade" scenes to heighten the chaotic feel (which is justified, because the actors were ''[[EnforcedMethodActing actually]]'' [[EnforcedMethodActing building a barricade]] in those scenes, and so the panic and chaos you see are very very real).

* Used in the TransformersFilmSeries, which is generally a staple of Creator/MichaelBay. The first film had the camera mostly at ground level, showing how big the robots are and how chaotic it would be. Later movies tone it down somewhat, as more emphasis was put on robot vs. robot rather than the military vs. the bad robots.
