* Totally overdone in a sequence in ''The Hunt for the Hidden Relic'' (original German title: ''Das Jesus Video'') from 2002. The sequence is an in-universe video, recorded with a future Sony camcorder. The shaky camera effect is meant to show that the video was taken by an amateur, but is shaking so ridiculously hard that it's actually far beyond ridiculous. No jokes about cameramen suffering from Parkinson, please - the camera is shaking much too hard even for that. And don't even question why a future Sony camcorder will not have the same or even better image stabilization than an old one from 1995.

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.

* In ''Film/ChildrenOfMen'', a combination of JitterCam and long sequences made for a very nervous movie, in which half of the screen time consists of TheOner with Parkinson's.
