    Question S5 camera shimmer?

    This morning while in my car at the Starbucks drive-thru, with my S5 plugged into a charger and in it's dash mount, I turned on the camera to take a picture of an ***** trying to enter the drive-thru from the wrong direction with other cars already lined up.

    What was very odd is that the image was shimmering like waves running through it. I might assume this was due to being plugged in with the camera running, but I didn't experience anything that on my S2. (Only other app running was Waze with GPS and Bluetooth turned on).

    Anyone else see their S5 camera do this? I imagine if I ever wanted to use the camera on my phone as a dash cam, that shimmering wave would make the video look like ****.

    Is the glass over the camera broken? Some people have been experiencing broken glass over the lens and it affects the images in the right light.
