Again, if Iím wrong on this no problem. Just been my experience in the past.
Yes this is what I do and it will allow you to keep your views, however....

If they fix something graphically in a park you will miss out. IE the circle around home plate at Wrigley Field in OOTP is not a circle. Instead the grass comes to a point in front of the plate that is very ugly.

There is a way around it if this occurs. Each park in the models folder has a file that holds the camera views. For Wrigley it is called "wrigley_field.ootp3d and is only 6kb. You can make backup copies of these files and move them into a new build and get your camera views back.

The easiest thing to do is keep that backup file of all of your parks and if a graphical fix comes in a patch you can go there to get your cameras and move them into the newly patched game. It's also a good idea in case you get in a hurry on patch day and overwrite your parks.
