* "VideoGame/Halo3" does this whenever a [[InterfaceScrew Gravemind Moment]] occurs.

* Machinima/RedVsBlue was able to do this after switching to Halo3, using the camera in theater mode. Previous games had a zoom feature, but it always switched to a scope of some kind. The camera in Halo3's Theater mode zooms seamlessly (although very quickly, making it a bit hard to control). One of the first times it was used was in Part II of Relocation, when Caboose sneaks up on Simmons.

[[TropeMaker First used]] by Alfred Hitchcock in the movie ''Film/{{Vertigo}}'' as an ImpairmentShot to show the audience what the protagonist is experiencing every time his fear of heights kicks in. The opening scene can be seen [[http://movieclips.com/RsdM-vertigo-movie-officer-down/ here]] displaying the effect about 55 seconds in.

* ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}}'' uses this for its 'weird feeling' effect in a shot of a doorway to the collapsed roof of the 55 Central Park West tower. The commentary track between the director, main actor, and director of photography addresses that they considered themselves to be pioneering the technique -- Harold Ramis jokingly suggesting "Scorsese ripped you off!"

Goes by many names, including optical compression, tracking zoom, dolly zoom, Hitchcock zoom, contra-zoom, trombone shot, and push-pull zoom.

* Used subtly in TheBurbs, where a neighborhood of incompetent snoops in a CrapSaccharine version of 1980's privileged suburbia are paranoid about their neighbors. Early shots of the Klopek house use this effect to get the viewer to immediately realize Tom Hanks' character Ray thinks something is just ''wrong'' about the place.
