Rotate the camera target around the camera position



campan(dtheta,dphi) rotates the camera target around the camera position by the amounts specified in dtheta and dphi (both in degrees). dtheta is the horizontal rotation and dphi is the vertical rotation.

campan(dtheta,dphi,'coordsys') The coordsys argument determines the center of rotation. It can take on two values:

campan(dtheta,dphi,'coordsys','direction') The direction argument, in conjunction with the camera position, defines the axis of rotation for the data coordinate system. Specify direction as a three-element vector containing the x, y, and z components of the direction or one of the characters, x, y, or z, to indicate [1 0 0], [0 1 0], or [0 0 1] respectively.

campan(axes_handle,...) operates on the axes identified by the first argument, axes_handle. When you do not specify an axes handle, campan operates on the current axes.
