I'm assuming your camera APK is faulty. I would try installing a different camera software.

You should also look at deleting the images/videos off your memory card/internal memory. I had a problem with my camera and this seemed to fix it.

The camera bug is well known and as I understand is caused by the "sensor aidding" function under the network location finder. When yo take a picture you see a moving sattelite icon on screen. Thats the phone is trying to add geolocation to your pics and fails for some reason. Try to get a gps fix and see if the camera is ok then. The solution for me was to turn off "use wireless networks" under Settings/Location and security. Most custom roms fix this issue.

I too have been having problems with the camera failing after updating to FroYo (via Kies). I've found using Camera360 works okay and doesn't crash. I will try both of the above tips using the normal camera app and report back. Roger that, over and out etc etc.

The 'sensor aiding' thing didn't do anything for me, but deleting my camera photos (well, moving them to my computer) has fixed this problem. I just moved the DCIM folder and now everything's fine.

Following my previous post, it happened again! Hopefully it was a one-off. I've turned off the review (of the photo after taking it) and it hasn't happened since. Touch wood. It also means I can take photos quicker. God knows if it makes any difference whatsoever.

Hi Guys

I had this from the day I bought the phone.. I found out today that is a common error and I found out that - in my case - it was caused by the fact that Adobe Flash was not updated - once I went to the market and clicked on my "to be updated" apps - then it worked fine
