It’s become the running joke of the Total War franchise. The developers release a new game, people whinge about the inordinately restrictive camera, and then someone releases a mod to fix it. And without fail, history has repeated itself with Total War Warhammer 2.

It basically allows the player to zoom the camera out further, giving you a better view of the battlefield without jumping into the tactical map view. You can also zoom in much closer if you’d like, and there’s a shortcut to disable the UI for pretty screenshots.
To illustrate, here’s an example of some cinematic snaps without the UI:
You can subscribe to the mod (that’s how you download things through Steam Workshop, remember) here. And if you’re struggling with more than the camera in-game, there’s a handy tips guide below.
