Instead of pressing N, opening the shelf, scrolling down and searching for the option Lock Camera to View, and then check mark. Can I create a keyboard a shortcut for lock camera to view?

  1. Go to User Pereferences/Input tab/3D View/3D View (Global)
  2. There is no entry for "Lock Camera to View", so we will add a new one.
  3. Click "Add New"
  4. Open the "none" line that was created
  5. In the text field which says "none", type: wm.context_toggle, and press ENTER
  6. A new text field labelled "Context Attributes" appears. Type: space_data.lock_camera, and press ENTER
  7. Define the shortcut. (Some more trial and error could be necessary to find a free one). The shortcut should work already.
  8. Don't forget to also press "Save User Settings" in the User Preferences window.

In the following screenshot I just added the shortcut Ctrl-K:

Today with 2.81 it's even easier.
Just click RMB on "Lock Camera to View" and "Change Shortcut".
Then choose whatever combination you want.
