Of course, sometimes it is good to watch what you're targeting, but there are many times that it is not, especially in a space game such as this.

I'd really like for this issue to be addressed. It doesn't seem like it would be a very difficult fix, although, let me know if I'm wrong. A simple "camera auto-follow" check-box toggle would be perfect.
Not entirely sure what you mean - in space there is an camera option somewhere in the options dialog (I think under the HUD or gameplay tabs?), there are 3 types of cameras there - 'free' (my preferred camera), 'chase' (locked to your ship's tail), 'follows target'. For ground, I assume there's something similar but have never actually checked (although I should because it is a bit annoying).

[there are keybinds for camera zoom, might also be keybinds for different camera modes?]
