I always wondered exactly what Star Trek's "sensors" actually were. Presumably they're some sort of combined passive and active electromagnetic measurement package. Which could technically include cameras, like those magical ones that somehow generate images of ships flying through space from the viewpoint of somewhere where there shouldn't be any cameras. Seriously. Watch the opening sequence of Star Trek: The Motion Picture again. Man, has that film dated.
So yes, it's possible that in an advanced technological civilisation you can generate exterior views of spaceships from a point of view where you don't have a camera. And this could even be useful for navigation and tactical manoeuvring purposes.
