Re: Explicitly specifying the 3d viewing options (pan, rotate, etc.)

One simple approach is to create a Dynamic entity that shows the
values of the options that you are interested in.  Here's an example:

DynamicModule[{viewPoint = N@{Pi, Pi/2, 2}},
 Column[{
   Plot3D[Sin[x + y^2], {x, -3, 3}, {y, -2, 2},
    ViewPoint -> Dynamic[viewPoint]],
   Dynamic[viewPoint]
   }
  ]
 ]

Best,
David
