A whip zoom (sometimes referred to as the "snap zoom") is a type of camera shot in which the camera zooms in or out quickly, allowing the viewer to focus on the subject. Another use of the whip zoom is to enable the shot to be edited as a cut from a long shot to a close up, or vice versa.
This technique is used by several directors such as Quentin Tarantino, Martin Scorsese, Kevin Smith and Rainer Werner Fassbinder. Examples can be seen in the movies Kill Bill: Volume 2, Goodfellas, Tusk, Kundo: Age of the Rampant, Man of Steel and Eight Hours Don't Make a Day.
