* An early example is the 1947 film noir ''Lady in the Lake'', directed by and starring (as Literature/PhilipMarlowe) Robert Montgomery, which was filmed almost entirely in POV Cam to imitate the original novel's first-person narration (this is hence a rare non-video game example of UnbrokenFirstPersonPerspective). Just so the film's Big Name Star was not totally unseen, he appears in bridging sequences and is seen whenever Marlowe looks into a mirror.

A shot that shows the perspective of a character, as if the viewer is looking through his eyes. This is most commonly accomplished with a SteadiCam or handheld camera operator standing in for the character, in appropriate clothes. Alternatively, it could be the actor or a stand-in with a small camera mounted to (or held very near) his head to keep both hands free for action.

* When a scene of ''Manga/InsideMari'' features Fumiko, we see nearly everything from Fumiko's point of view. In fact, the times we see Fumiko's face in these scenes are typically when she's looking at a reflective surface such as a mirror, window, or her mother's eye.

In the course of this, we see [[spoiler:Mari's classmates as filthy creatures with either the top half or the bottom half of their faces obscured, her father turned away and transparent, her mother looking positively grotesque, Mari's reflection looking like childish scribbling, and Isao surrounded by {{Bishie Sparkle}}s even as Mari's watching him masturbate. The only one who looks normal at all is her younger brother]].

* The 1931 film of ''[[Literature/TheStrangeCaseOfDrJekyllAndMrHyde Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde]]'' uses this twice, once in the beginning (from Jekyll's viewpoint as he dresses and travels to a lecture) and then again after the first transformation to Hyde (as he spins around in confusion and finally catches himself in the mirror). The mirror shots were done by having actor Creator/FredricMarch pose on the opposite side of a fake mirror which was actually just a hole in the wall.
