On the A320 family there are circuit breaker panels in the cabin between the exits. On the 2000VU panel there is a "camera" circuit breaker (C5 position):

Which camera is it related to?

    $\begingroup$ I believe, but have no evidence, that it's an option for one that looks out the front windshield, dashcam style. It was apparently a thing in the 1980s. Cockpit next to it is for United Channel 9. $\endgroup$ – user71659 Dec 20 '17 at 20:53

There's an option for a tail mounted camera for the passenger entertainment system (PES). It's the same one they use on widebody jets, but it's not hooked up to the cockpit for taxi purposes.

Airbus press release says

Designed for a private customer, this cabin seats just over 30 passengers and includes such features as touch-screen technology, advanced passenger entertainment and communications, plus a tail-mounted camera.
