* ''Film/BlackAndWhiteInColor'' uses this throughout the opening credits, which play over a series of era-appropriate early 1900s still pictures of French soldiers. It's a film set in a French colony in Africa in 1915.



* ''Film/{{Dillinger}}'' uses this for the opening credits, in which the credits play over a series of stills of the Great Depression as the camera pans and zooms. This is also used for a couple of [[TimePassesMontage Time Passes Montages]] within the movie.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/GatesOfHeaven'': Used only once, when Phillip Harbert points to a framed photo of William James, and the camera pans over the photo while Harbert recites a James quote: "Emotions are not always subject to reason but they are always subject to action."

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/HeartsAndMinds'': Used sparingly, as the film is mostly live footage. One instance shows a picture of Ho Chi Minh, then zooms out from the picture as Senator Fulbright muses about how Ho wrote to the United States government in 1946, expecting support for a rebellion against colonial oppression.

Added DiffLines:

* Used extensively in ''[[Film/{{Amy 2015}} Amy]]'', possibly because that film eschews another documentary trope, TalkingHeads. One particularly chilling instance has a Ken Burns pan on a grainy photo of Music/AmyWinehouse suddenly freeze as her friends talk about her first overdose.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/TheSorrowAndThePity'': Used periodically throughout the movie. In one quite effective shot the camera shows Marshal Petain, then pans over to show Hitler on the other side of the picture, thus illustrating the Franco-German summit in 1940.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/TheTimesOfHarveyMilk'': Used heavily throughout the movie, with many many pictures being panned and zoomed. Possibly the most notable instance comes when a newspaper photo of Dan White (Milk's murderer) is shown as his confession plays. As the audio clip goes on, the camera zooms in on White very very slowly, ending with a tight closeup on his eyes.
