I made an exemplar world for this before. Download my first attachment.

Hold ENTER to see how not to do a zooming effect. This is the way most people would do it, but notice how it doesn't look like zooming and rather than magnifying on a certain area it instead goes physically past the bird.

Hold SPACE to see how you should do a zooming effect. This modifies the viewing angles to zoom right. Notice how it does magnify on the centre and doesn't go past the bird, just as a real magnifying lens would.

I didn't make the second attachment, but I can't remember who did. Download it. It displays a cool sniper demo, but it uses the wrong zooming method.

Do a mix of the two and you will get it just right.
