54 is a fine size. I can ride the 52 everywhere and I'm 155ish lbs.

As for the minimal amount or camber. The industry basically allows you to call anything zero +/- like 2-3mm of camber/rocker. It takes so little weight to level out that much camber it basically isn't there.

The reason for it is the way a snowboard is pressed. With there being a heat blanket on the top and bottom, depending on initial resin temp, ambient temp in the factory, the difference in temperature between the blankets, the overall temperature the press gets too, the small variations in wood grain... those all effect the level of camber in a deck.
