For example, if you're taking baron or the purple jungle and a fight breaks out at your blue, you will be approaching the fight from purple side and still face visibility problems. This is another reason why I don't believe flipping the camera is a good solution. It just hides the problem most of the time.
I have never found a problem when approaching team fights from the top on blue, the problem I have when playing on purple team happens specifically when I play mid lane. In the early game, with a locked camera, I cannot see the enemy champion lining up for a skillshot or trying to sneak into a position to launch an attack. I tried playing with an unlocked camera to fix this, but all this caused to happen was flinging the camera wildly off course when trying to line up a skillshot or quickly get away. I play Ahri a lot, so Spirit Rushing in and then trying to line up a charm or orb of deception ends up with me throwing the camera halfway down the lane and then dying because I can't see what's happening to my champion. I do not have the finger dexterity to quickly hit Y in time when this happens, and as I have short fingers, to be able to hit Y I have to completely remove my fingers from the QWER position or try to awkwardly pull my thumb up which causes my fingers to slip from their position anyway. I find similar problems when trying to run away, especially if I use Spirit Rush and then try to throw Charm behind me to slow them down. The unlocked camera resulted in a lot of unnecessary death, but having the camera locked meant I couldn't see my opponent lining up to attack, which would cause me to die anyway. When playing on purple in mid I feel like I'm in an impossible situation where no matter what I do I end up dying, which creates a miserable experience. I find no problem when being in other lanes and having a locked camera, but the placement of the UI makes the early game in mid lane a very unfun experience.
I also have to agree that I don't think the camera should be flipped for purple. That would be far too disorienting, and no fix for locked camera users should affect those that use an unlocked camera. I really do however feel that the camera's position should be shifted down slightly for purple. Giving purple AND blue the same locked camera viewing range means that there's no unfairness in how much blue or purple can see in front or behind them with the locked camera.
