Go to the Mathematica Preference Dialog.

In that Dialog select the Interface tab.

In that tab, check the box that says "Automatically re-fit 3-D
graphics after rotation."

I am not sure why the graphic zooms so much if that box is unchecked:
it seems as though it is much too much of a zoom, and perhaps this is
a bug.

That checkbox covers the global setting of the option RotationAction.

Hope that this helps,
