Stress is anything that the fish does not experience normally.
The camera will make the fish scared, curious and act differently then it would if it was not there. Especially if the fish is scared, stress will be created. If you are going to do it, do it once and for not too long.
Byron wrote a great article on stress, it really applies to any element that affects the fish in a way they wouldn't normally behave. In this case an intruder into their home.
If you do take the video, post it so we can see. I bet the fish will run, some might be curious.
