I switch back and forth in matches, actually. Unlocked camera helps see what's going on outside your own limited area, lets you better aim long range skillshots and is almost mandatory if you get stuck on purple side.

I've played unlocked the whole time. Locked is to restrictive.

Just practice using it. I used locked when I first started. Then switched to unlocked, it was hard at first but over time you don't even notice it and its like riding a bike

i unlock when im on the way to a fight or need to look somewhere/guide a pet, i prefer to stay locked for fighting because i find it easy to lose focus if i'm not directly centered on myself

Unlocked is better if you can do it (and especially if you are the purple team)... however, I simply can't do it so I have just learned to compensate and for the most part I don't think anyone playing with me can tell the difference...

as far as tips for getting use to locked camera purple... time and pratice. Learn to play slow and smart and focus more on out farming them. Some champs however will always be a pain such as Nid...

Unlocked is better in almost all situations, provided you can keep track of where your champion is. I say almost because there is still the mouse-movement to direct your screen, while your skills may want to be directed elsewhere. And yes, reducing sensitivity really does help a lot.

Locked is a lot more convenient especially for low-range champions. As long as you have map awareness, I really couldn't care less, though.
