Feature Reque/Idea - Middle Mouse Button controls Camera

I dont know about you but the Camera is a B***h to use*no offence* its hard to get the image to the right place, a great help was the tracking, but another good feature would be to control the camera like you do with the other 3D-Views with the Middle button, and instead of it rotating sideways(sideways meaning 45 - 90 degs.)

also to make the camera actually zoom in with the mouse wheel, not just the screen, and this would be an option or preference... I think it would help?

Any feedback?

or help me with the camera?

I have no problem with the camera.
And I'm not to interested in how other software performs. Or how your opinion is on how other software performs: Modo also has a rotation ball camera, works just fine. O wait, now I'm mixing up camera and viewport, but maybe so are you?

thats what im wondering about? How can I get the camera to rotate while im in that view? I have learned the G 'key' in the camera view, but the rotation rotates it on its side... and I didnt say anything about other software.... didnt mean to offend anyone... so how do I access a rotation camera like the Viewport?

I meant in the camera view (NUM + 0)

Try middle mouse after the camera is in rotation mode. Is that what you'd expect?

"didnt mean to offend anyone" :) Don't worry about that.

You can find good help on how blender works on a user forum.
There is a great list here:

I know this isn't the thread for this, but: question for the moderators/admins of this forum: Shouldn't there be a big bold banner or title on the main blender.org forum index page stating this fact? Maybe links could be provided to some of the more popular, elYsiun in particular? Seems this kind of comment/reply is all too common here...

There is an other forum (foundation and websites) to ask website questions. A little "search" will give you the answer to this question.
