    What I do, is select an item in the Scene or SScene tab, and ust the Camera Frame button on the toolbar. That is the easiest way to do it for me anyway.

    Hey JimmyC_2009, thanks fo the reply, i' ve tried that, but it still fits the camera pretty far away from the object, I have to do a lot of zooming to get close to the object, the zoom is to slow, maybe there' s setting for it that i haven' t found yet ?

    I just discovered that using the RMB and draggging on the Zoom icon moves it at a rate of knots for me. It may adjust the focal length of the camera, but that shouldn't matter in Perspective view anyway.

    What is a RMB? I'd love to avoid all the slow zooming, too.

    Thanks.

    Right Mouse Button :)

    I also have a scroll wheel on my mouse, and works for zooming normally as well.

    My first impulse was to bang my head on the desk and say, "Why didn't I think of that?" But then I stopped myself and realized I'd never have thought of that in a million years. Now I'm off to test it. Awesome!

    I found it, you press the camera pan tool with RMB, and at the same time you hold Left Ctrl, and move the mouse back/ foreward

    The one I meant was the Magnifying glass symbol. It doesn't work for me with your method, but you may have hotkeys set up for this.

    It is a good idea I think, to have Tool Tips turned on in Preferences.

    Zoom + RMB changes the scale of the camera. It's quite effective as a fast zoom.

    Yes i find it frustrating, about the zoom speed, i looked into some preference options i found some rotation speed and another im not sure what it does, but sometimes i have a issue zooming in to my object where its impossible to get closer once i get to a certain point, any tips on working around with this?

    I have tried the zoom button on the interface, i used mouse wheel, but it still fails to get me in closer. I cant finish what i need to do ;/

    This seems to be more of a bug then a feature due to its random effect. It seems if you're object is more off center you can zoom in fast and where you need it, instead of it right in front of you.

    I use the Camera Frame button as shown below. Here I have Genesis Head selected in the Scene pane, but you can also select any object in the Viewport as well, then click on Camera Frame.
