How do I observe camera events?

You can observe a camera's events at any time (even before you create it) by using the camera's id and the CameraTag.observe method. Here is an example observing the 'MyRecorder1' publish event:
CameraTag.observe('MyRecorder1', 'published', function(){
 alert('this video has been published!')
});
