Currently in QGIS 3d windows there's no way to rotate the camera view while keeping the camera position fixed. This would be a very useful option, e.g. to allow users to position the camera at a certain point in the scene and then rotate the camera to see what's visible from that point (e.g. view from top of a hill).

It's currently impossible to do this - the only rotation options are to rotate the camera position around the scene.

Right mouse button is however already used for zooming in/out. Looking at Google Earth as a reference, right button is used for zoom in/out as well, and the rotation of camera without moving it is possible with Ctrl + left button (or with Ctrl + arrow keys). Would that solution work for you?
