Scott, I'm not sure the best place to ask this question, so I'm just going to post it here.

In your film The Payoff, at 3:23 there is a contra-zoom in the hotel hallway. What type of camera were you using for this shot? Do you have any experience doing this with a camcorder? I don't have a need for this shot. Just curious.

Thanks for everything. I've learned quite a bit, and more every week.

Hey John!

The camera was the Sony Z1U, a prosumer model, but the fact is you can use any camera that has a zoom lens. Dolly in while zooming out (or vice versa) and presto! The Vertigo Shot.

The key is to dolly/zoom at the same rate, so the camera appears to remain stationary while the background expands or contracts.
