What was the camera technique used in CSI last night? During some transition scenes, Las Vegas was shown in a macro/blurred process, making the entire city look more like a miniature set than the real thing. It was posted on the blue before. Please help?

"fake tilt shift" is usually what people call it when they're not using dedicated equipment for it and just doing a photo/video technique to produce it.

It's called the Scheimpflug Principle. It's mostly used in still photography, where it's done with a view camera.
More detailed info.

Yay! I was watching this with my mom last night and trying to remember the name of the technique.
