Or use Turret (eyeball) cameras and no wedge needed.
Are the domes purchased already?
What type of gimbal do they have?
I noticed that Hikvision has angled bases for their domes. I've never used one though.

Disclaimer: I think like a trunkslammer sometimes.
What about a swing bracket? ie:
They sell them at big box home improvement stores to hang garden hose reels or pneumatic tool hoses from.
They would make up the angle of the soffit and give you a parallel with-the-ground mounting surface.
Heck, you might be able to just bend up a stamped sheet metal bracket used in roofing.
This third axis allows for corrections if the camera is not mounted level with the horizon. Most commonly this is used to adjust domes mounted to sloped ceilings for proper angle.

For what you're describing I'd probably just knock a few brackets together out of Azek. Easy to work with, won't rot, you can get exactly what you need pretty cheap.
I assume the underside of the eave is covered?
how about a simple wooden "L" long enough to protect the wire.
perhaps the eave covering is available in 3/4" stock. Glued & screwed. painted to match if necessary. End-Caps are optional.
Get one of the wall mount brackets, affix to eave, mount camera on bracket and point.
Thinking out loud, what about using one of the Dahua wall mounts and just having the camera at an angle?
Jon, how far out does the camera need to see, 50, 100 ft, more?
