It depends very much on the size of the camera. Are you thinking in terms of a small webcam or a heavy professional video camera?

In general, use two stepper motors with reduction gears if necessary. Steppers have the advantage of staying locked in position, if you use normal motors you would also need a braking system so they don't roll by themselves under the camera weight.
