    Default Camera problems with new nexus 7

    Here is what happened. I took it out of the box and set it up. Everything fine. First thing I do is go test the back camera out. Take a pic fine. Zoom in terrible pics. All blurry. After about 3 pics It freezes. No buttons work. It shuts itself down. So I though ok just a fluke. Lets do the same thing to see if it happens again. After about 4 pics it freezes again then shuts itself down and restarts itself. Anyone else have this problem. I did expect a little bit better pics from it than what I got. As long as I don't zoom to far it does fine pic quality wise. However if I take 3-9 pics in a row. Going slow or fast doesn't matter it freezes and shuts completally off then restarts.

    Also I get these lines that move accross my screen sometimes while in camera mode? This is my first nexus. I'm not to sure about this anymore. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    just had similiar problem. what i think is that u just need to let it find itself . open all apps , set up all accounts , run a game and a video and open the speakers with music and the camera and video ect. right away, hit it hard. i really think its just cause its never been used . after doing all that. mine didnt do it again. even video ran choppy first time. that little cartoon sample it comes with. my guess is that it just need to warm up n run a little since it is a mini beast and all. lol loving it tons in hour three now. but yeah my screen froze for the first few pictures and videos . didnt shut down but lagged frozen for almost a minute.

    I have a similar problem with the new nexus 7 (I just took it out of the box) .. when I use the camera app, the screen freezes ... either the tablet restarts itself or I have to do it.

    I got an error saying that my camera would not work, because no external storage was detected. Reboot fixed it, and I never came across it again.

    I restarted today and now everything looks normal. Restarting yesterday didn't make a difference, so the problem may have just sorted itself out.

    The back camera works fine for me but when i switch to front facing it freezes immediately. Tried rebooting and that didn't fix it. I even tried the front facing camera on a few other apps (hangouts, instagram) and it wont work there either.

    Try a reboot and see if that does it.

    I had the same problem. Upgrading the OS fixed it. Make sure you get the current version by doing an upgrade when you first receive your Nexus 7. As of today the Build number is JSS15R. Go to SETTINGS>ABOUT TABLET>SYSTEM UPDATES to check your current version. Have Fun!

    The camera quality on mine sucks to the point I don't use it. But it only sucks indoors...outside when it's right it takes pictures. It's no way near the quality of my HTC EVO LTE but indoors the quality is so crappy I don't use it except for Snapchat pictures. I only get the error message above from time to time when I open Snapchat.

    Yes, pictures quality from Nexus 7 (2013) camera is very poor. Obviously I don't not prefer using such a big device for taking professional pictures but one would expect it providing at-least meaningful quality for quick utility snaps. It tends to provide somewhat decent quality only in perfect lighting conditions. With this, I don’t use Nexus 7 camera at all. Overall the device is super, wish they had done little better job at camera.

    I see that people have stopped posting replies to this thread. I bought a Nexus 7 2013 for my Dad, and one of his main purposes of use was to skype-communicate with my sister living abroad. The tab received the latest 4.4.2 update. Everything was working good. The rear camera also was working good. Then suddenly when I turned Skype on, and tried video calling, the call ended without connecting and the camera crashed. Even in the camera app, when I tried rotating the camera from the settings menu (to use the front camera), the camera app crashed. From then on, whenever I tried turning the camera on, it kept saying "Could not connect to camera". ONly after I went to App setting, deleted the cache and the data of the camera app, the camera app started afresh.
    Why is this issue not resolved by Google yet? The issue, as I see, is not with the Skype, but with the front camera of the Nexus 7 2013. What's the deal? Can anyone confirm to have solved this problem?
