It would be nice if we could specify the order of the cameras for the drop down list so that we can keep them in order of where they appear in the beamline. If not given an order, it would be nice if they appear at the bottom of the list by default.

The simplest way to do this is to specify a "weight" property for each camera. Camera's with more weight will sink to the bottom of the list. We can call the weight a "location" if that is preferred (this works nicely if the locations are sorted alphanumerically). The weight would be stored in the database and new cameras would have no weight which could either float to the top or the bottom of the list.
