Default keyframing the zoom of a camera

hi,
I want to animate how a camera zooms in to a detail, ( so, i want to change te focal length (from 28 to 400 +) and move the cam. The moving part is ofcourse easy to keyframe, but I can't get the focal length to keyframe. Is there an solution to this?

uh... hold the RMB where it says 'focal length' and choose 'key selected'.

no such thing as a silly question...

or as they say, the only stupid questions are the ones people DON'T ask... so basically if you don't know and you think someone else does, don't hesitate to ask...
