Just had an alignment done with mounting and balancing my new set of tires. What do you have to say about my front camber? It seems pretty far from ideal. What could be the root cause?

Maybe a blown strut or warped strut mount. Maybe the LCA is bent.

Usually the weakest link bends with an impact and it is most commonly the strut.
One rough but reliable way to check is measure the distance between the top of the tire and the strut tube and compare side to side.
If the car is on the alignment rack you can visually sight up and sometimes see the difference.
Just as easy with the car on a lift.
Either way try putting your fingers between the inner tire sidewall and the strut. If it's bent badly you'll be able to feel a slight difference.

On the floor it's a physical challenge, but in essence wrap your arm around or over the top of the tire and do the same thing.
