In that case you may be more interested by bitmapped fonts, or  
outline versions of them. The original Cairo font from OS 7 and below  
included a television symbol (not really a camera, but...). Cairo was  
a popular font in the early 90s, and the then-popular game Glypha was  
partly inspired by it <http://homepage.mac.com/bvoisin/.Public/Cairo% 

A TrueType version of this font is available at <http:// 
Image_Pages/C/Cairo.html>. The above screenshot includes this  
version. It's said to be based on a PostScript version, but I've not  
been able to find it.
