* 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.

* ''Film/XMenApocalypse'': After Apocalypse notices Xavier's presence through the latter's telepathic link with Erik, Apocalypse stares straight at the camera (so we're seeing him through the Professor's perspective) with his glowing white eyes as he ominously states, [[spoiler:"Thank you for letting me in."]]

* The ''{{Series/Mash}}'' episode "Point of View" used this to great effect, with the camera taking the place of a patient in the hospital, allowing the viewer to experience the characters from a different perspective.
* In the ''SmallWonder'' series finale "The Rip-Off", this was done when Vicki, connected to the hotel TV, showed how the robbery really happened.
