If you don't like creating new topic, try finding the answer yourself ;). This is just basic stuff, which can easily be found in the manual.
You can move/zoom and rotate you view using the Arc rotate tool. Use your middle mouse button or alt+right mouse button to zoom.

Just be sure to turn the arch off when you want to begin working again

WOW, I Feel like such an idiot, I never knew that. :-[



I always used to make a cube and "Frame selected" until I zoomed in how far I wanted.  :D

I know, I really need to re-read the manual. I read part(s) of it when I was a brand new to the program, but that's about it.

You can also zoom by selecting the View mode (top right button in the toolbox), selecting the scale tool (box with two arrows on the diagonal), and dragging the mouse left and right.

 To use 'camera zoom' in scene mode, create a key for the 'FOV' of the camera.
 Then, open the graph editor and adjust your key value from there.
 
 Real time camera zoom. :)
