I've searched everywhere but can't seem to find an answer to what seems like a simple question. When I have footage in the composition panel or in the layer panel, its easy enough to zoom in and out using either the mouse scroll or the comma/full-stop keys.

However I can't seem to find a way for me to zoom in and then move left and right, short of actually having to move the original footage. This would seem super useful for masking or for using the clone stamp tool so it must just be something I'm missing. If anyone could help with this it'd be massively appreciated!

Press the space bar, left click and you can reframe the work area.
