I am confused by the terminology & illustrations on this site. 
Pitch = angle of attack. An efficient fan/propeller blade usually has a higher pitch near the hub (center) than at the tip. A blade with a constant pitch is less efficient.

Blade Camber is the equivalent of a wing airfoil. A flat blade = 0 camber is generally less efficient than a blade with a camber/ arch/airfoil. However, the camber has t be appropriate to the application.
