  142. 142. 18. Id X and Y(full points only)• The dolly zoom is an unsettling in-camera effect that appears to undermine normal visual perception and is now part of many cinematic techniques used in filmmaking and television production.• The effect is achieved by using the setting of a zoom lens to adjust the angle of view (often referred to as field of view FOV) while the camera dollies (or moves) towards or away from the subject in such a way as to keep the subject the same size in the frame throughout. In its classic form, the camera is pulled away from a subject while the lens zooms in, or vice-versa. Thus, during the zoom, there is a continuous perspective distortion, the most directly noticeable feature being that the background appears to change size relative to the subject.• This has a highly unsettling effect on the viewer and the emotional shock is even greater. This effect is also popularly known as the X effect due to its famous use in the movie X by the director Y.
