Increase Camera View
While I understand the developers might not be delighted with the idea of a further back camera due to that meaning you can easily catch ambushers, I believe moving the camera even a little back would help a lot for players.
Right now it's very annoying to play with the camera. It's hard to see quest items or your surroundings, or outside of foliage as a baby. I believe moving the camera back enough to help players while also inhibiting it from being able to see ambushers too well will help a lot, and I hope this goes under consideration.
(In the image below, there is an example of how ridiculous I believe the camera is, with it going only above the tip of the tail on max zoom).
