My suggestion to you would be to watch some live streams from the professionals. Not only would you quickly see how ridiculous your comment of 'no, locked is more effective' actually is but you might also learn how to manipulate the camera better.
Imho your problem isn't which side of the map you are on, its your whole perspective of the game. Playing with a locked camera most of the time means your focus is on your champ most of the time. That mind set is fundamentally flawed. Your focus should be on your target, whatever that may be. You are directing your champ to do things. If you are saying that you can't see what you are trying to target with a locked camera, then I would say I think you've found your problem.
And the argument of 'then I will be susceptible to ganks' is easily solved by two words - mini map.
