I've never gone myself, but recently a friend of mine got to visit the tower at KAPC - Napa, CA. He was not allowed to take pictures or any video unfortunately.

It depends.

My tour of Norcal TRACON explicitly forbid any cameras or recording equipment. Shortly after that, we were given a tour of SMF Tower, in which we were allowed cameras, but no video.

We were allowed Scanners though, funnily enough.

I toured the TRACON/Tower at KDTW a couple of years back. We were not allowed to take any pics/vid in the TRACON, but were allowed to take pics and vid from the tower.

Any FAA regulations regarding the vid cams and cameras in tower ?

I'm not sure about video cameras, but regular cameras are usually okay as long as you do not photograph controllers (without their permission).

Agreed. I am not positive about the video cameras, but still cameras are usually ok. My guess is it would be up the the individual facility.
