Hi Drewnix and welcome to the forums!

You will definitely want to ask that in the forum for your provider-specific S3.

The only things I can think of off hand are either a corrupted camera OR a conflict with a 3rd party camera app. Do you have another camera app installed? If not, maybe a data wipe/factory reset would clear the error. You WILL lose all user data in a factory reset: it'll be like it was new out of the box. Again, check your device-specific forums for advice before doing anything dramatic.

Hope this helps and I hope you get this resolved quickly
