I think it's fairly obvious this is a duplicate of Body Screen Fill Up — a character walks towards the camera and fills the screen, cut to the character walking away from the camera. They even have many of the same examples, with pages like Rugrats listing both trope names.
Since Body Screen Fill Up has twice the wicks (51 vs 27) and many times the inbounds as Walk Through The Camera (295 vs 45), I propose we redirect WTTC to it, merging examples if needed. Does that seem sensible to everyone?
Body Screen Fill Up: After the character walks into the screen, either the show will cut to a different scene, the same setting will be shown afterwards, the camera will cut to black, or the camera will rotate 180° and show them walking through it.Walk Through The Camera seems to jus be The Same, but More, with a lot of links as examples.
Bumping this; we now have a POV Camera Cut Front To BackYKTTW, by a different person, and the Walking Away Shot page by the same person as started the rest of them. We really, really need to cut this down to one page.
I think all the tropes should be merged into either Body Screen Fill Up or Walk Through The Camera — the second is nicer as a name, but the first encompasses sitting on or eating the camera. Those two, while distinct in excecution, don't have a different meaning to walking into or out of the camera, so they aren't separate tropes.
The inbounds from all of these aren't the normal general use in discussions and articles across the 'net. The creator of all of them (sans the current YKTTW) has a Youtube channel which links to several of the pages (only a few at a time, it seems, which explains why he wiped and recreated a couple), so Body Screen Fill Up got inbounds from there. This means that inbounds can't be considered a measure of trope success to the extent they normally can and they're not necessarily indicative of a good name.
I added a "merge into [Name to be Determined]" option to the crowner because I don't like any of the names on there.
Walk Through The Camera is too specific for merging everything, Body Screen Fill Up is just awkward (and with the inbound count not being valid, there's no real reason to save it), and In And Out Camera POV is bland and awkward.

Vote up names you like, vote down names you don't. Whether or not the title will actually be changed is determined with a different kind of crowner (the Single Proposition crowner). This one just collects and ranks alternative titles.
