To make things easier, just use Perspective view instead of setting cameras.

  • Alt + W  ==   Toggle Max / Min Viewport
  • MMB = pan.  
  • Ctrl + P = pan mode
  • MMB + Ctrl = pan quickly.
  • MMB + Shift = constrain pan horizontal or vertical.
  • MMB + Shift + Ctrl = pan quickly, constrained.
  • MMB + Alt = arc rotate.
  • MMB + Alt + Shift = constrain arc rotate (let go Shift to change axis)
  • MMB + Ctrl + Alt or Scroll = zoom
    (see Preferences, Viewports tab, Mouse Control section)
