I've been thinking about doing this myself.  The solution I came up with
would be two servos, one mounted on the other, with the camera mounted on
the second servo.  The two servos could be easily controlled via a number
of microcontrollers, but since I've got a Miniboard sitting around
(MC68HC11-based, kit from MIT), I was just planning on using that...it's
wonderful for quick servo control, either from onboard programs or in real-time
over an RS232 port.
