    Ok 89 views and no one has had this problem? Bad phone or what? Maybe do a factory reset?

    Sorry I've never heard of this. I'd try a factory reset yeah.

    Edit: actually, you probably should go to the camera under applications in the phone settings and try to clear data first.

    I second the factory reset. I would even go as far as downloading a free camera app to make sure that your camera is functional. If it does work, you can download the apk and install it. But a factory reset should do.

    Actually I have gotten that error before. I'm pretty sure it was from a different faulty app, but a reboot fixed the problem and I don't think I've gotten it again.

    The only bug I've experienced is that the UI for the stock camera doesn't load right away. I'll see the viewfinder image as expected, but only black bars at the top and bottom of the screen where the shutter icon and other controls should be. Usually this happens once, after a reboot.

    For what it's worth, in my experience the vast majority of third party camera apps don't come close to using the full capability of the hardware. If you get more than a tenth of the amount of pixels you should get from stock, you're lucky.

    One of the few exceptions I've found is the Nexus Camera which is available in the marketplace. I haven't fully explored its features and capabilities, but as far as I've gone with it it seems to run fine on our phones.
