Default ortho style zoom in ShotCam?

Hi everybody,

I was wondering if it's possible to zoom in and pan on a shot without changing the depth or relative distance of the objects in a shot camera like you can in the orthographic views? It would be really useful for doing little animation tweaks.

Thanks in advance
Simon

Thanks for the reply, yeah focal length does work but I'd like to be able to pan around too.

Simon :-)

I'm trying to find a way essentially of just zooming in on what I have and panning in X and Y without changing the angle I'm looking at, like you get in the ortho front, side and top views, with no sense of depth of perspective.
