Description

While orbiting Gilly during EVA, adjustments with the RCS can cause the Kerbal to switch influence between Gilly and Eve, and back and forth, each time causing the camera to reorient. Each time the Kerbal must reorient himself, wasting rcs fuel. This makes Kerbal to Craft orbital rendezvous practically impossible.

You are witnessing normal (auto) camera behaviour. Due to the low gravity on Gilly, the SOI can flip easily, and therefore affecting the camera. The camera mode can be controlled using "C" so anything other than "Auto" should provide a stable view.

[Edit]
Revised SOI conjecture to proximity of vessel to reference object, and irregular shape of Gilly.

"C" seems to have no effect on the EVA camera.
In my stream recording you can view my camera's instability.

After further investigation, it would appear that the camera instability is related to the proximity of the reference body. see related issues.
