Through the Camera Eye is a videocassette/laserdisc release by the Canadian band Rush. It was released in 1985 by PolyGram Records. It contains promotional videos issued for the band's albums Moving Pictures (1981), Signals (1982) and Grace Under Pressure (1984). Absent from the collection were the videos for Limelight and the album version of Tom Sawyer, both filmed at Le Studio (the same locale as the Vital Signs video). The live version of "Tom Sawyer" comes from the concert video Exit... Stage Left (1982). No DVD re-issue was released.

The concept of the "Camera Eye" is a literary device used by the author John Dos Passos in his trilogy USA.
