* Very much overused in ''WesternAnimation/NormOfTheNorth''. The camera will frequently orbit around the characters, often with little rhyme nor reason. [[https://youtu.be/JqyBIhmbuh0?t=435 Case in point.]]

* In ''Film/BadBoys 2'', when the villain [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IUH3JQjcweM calls the heroes]] to inform them that he holds the lead girl (who happens to be one hero's sister and the other's girlfriend) hostage, the camera does a dramatic Orbital Shot as one of them delivers the punchline "Shit just got real!"

* In the ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'' episode "[[Recap/StarTrekTheOriginalSeriesS1E4TheNakedTime The Naked Time]]", the camera circles Spock as he loses control and [[InelegantBlubbering begins to sob]]. Creator/LeonardNimoy actually suggested this, as he thought it would be more powerful than a regular shot.

* In ''[[Film/{{Twelve}} 12]]'', a Russian remake of ''Film/TwelveAngryMen'', the first vote of the jury is captured in a 3 1/2-minute tracking shot that makes a full circle around the jurors. Just when the camera completes its circle and it like it seems the jury will be done in five minutes, the camera zooms in on the RogueJuror casting his lone Not Guilty vote.

** ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirlsFriendshipGames'': In a nice bit of animation, the "camera" does a rotation around Human Twilight for a part of her solo song, "What More Is Out There".

The "Blooper Reel" released shortly after the movie then parodies it, by showing Twilight tripping during the rotating shot.



* Done to excess in the final rendition of 'This Is Me' in ''CampRock'' when Shane and Mitchie meet on the middle of a catwalk-esque podium to sing.

* In the [[SoBadItsGood just-begging-for-a-]]Podcast/RiffTrax horror film ''Darkhunters'', there is a scene where a demon is holding Carol Miller by her jacket and pulling her up to his face, and while they talk the camera is constantly panning around them. It's not a continuous shot but a series of half-orbits around the two of them, zoomed in close to their faces. Watch it [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rtH_27NEprk here]] starting at 51:50. It lasts nearly three minutes, so have a bucket handy...
** Dizziness exacerbated by forcing you to read subtitles during the whole thing!

* ''Webcomic/MegaTokyo'' did this in five panels, in the middle of a fight in a crowded nightclub. It's about as confusing as you'd expect, and it's entirely possible to miss the fact that it's the ''camera'' that's rotating, not Kimiko.

* Pearl gets a very dramatic and aesthetically pleasing one in the ''WesternAnimation/{{Steven Universe}}'' episode "Mr. Greg".
* ''WesternAnimation/VerwitterteMelodie'' (1943) includes what was a very sophisticated shot for animation of the era, in which the camera does a full 360-degree turn around a record player that a bee finds forgotten in a meadow.
