* The web [=RPs=] [[Roleplay/InsaneCafeSeries Insane Cafe 2: Rise of the Shurlups]] and [[InsaneCafeSeries Insane Cafe 3: The Curse of the Haunted Hotel]] have this in spades.

* Turns up from time to time in CthulhuMythos stories, as when Robert Bloch's "The Sorcerer's Jewel" shows what happens when a crystal once used by mystics for fortune-telling is ground into a camera lens, and photos are taken through it.

Note that this is not {{Magitek}}. Magitek is the use of magic to recreate modern inventions, like a camera which is really just [[Literature/{{Discworld}} a box with an Imp inside drawing really fast]], or an "Internet" made from magic mirrors and living books. Post Modern Magik is when cameras work as normal, but aren't able to take pictures of vampires due to the use of [[SilverHasMysticPowers silver halide photo-chemicals]] and mirrors[[note]]If the writer knows a bit more about camera technology, vampires might show up on digital cameras, but not the viewfinder of a high end camera, which uses a periscope arrangement of mirrors to show the image the actual lens sees[[/note]], and demons are real, but can be beaten up by [[UltimateMarvel mutants]] or be fooled by [[Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer realistic androids]].

* Discussed in the novelisation of ''Anime/YourName''. When Mitsuha sees Tessie and Sayaka watching the ritual she's performing despite her entreaties for them not to show up, she briefly entertains the thought of sending curses via Line messaging.

* The point of Creator/CharlesStross' TheLaundrySeries. All magic is based around very complicated mathematics. This made it very hard to do... until Turing invented the computer.

Added DiffLines:

* In an example rife with UnfortunateImplications, TheManitou film-of-the-book has the titular Native American evil spirit battle a good Native American shaman to no effect in a modern hospital, only for the shaman to realize the Manitou is vulnerable to the spirits of modernity. In this case means throwing a computer at the Manitou. Ouch. Double ouch when that fails for the Native American shaman because it's "white man's magic," thus requiring the Caucasian female to save herself by banishing Native American spirits with the spirit of fax machine, photocopier, and FM radio.

* The bad guys in ''Series/Librarians2014' are often combining magic with modern ideas, such as the cult of the Minotaur that's restructured itself as a corporation punningly named after the labrys (Golden Axe Food Company). The Librarians themselves try not to, since the whole point is to ''stop'' magic, but have a few tricks like connecting a tablet to a MagicMirror for field communication.

** Also, apparently vampires and vampaneze aren't allowed to use guns. So, the vampaneze use ordinary people as gun-wielding foot soldiers. And then the vampires decide to use homeless people as a BadAss army of [[Film/{{Grindhouse}} hobos with guns]].
