I'm running into this error with increasing frequency. I did some Googling and the closest solution I could find in various forums is that there may be another app that utilizes the camera which is interfering. I haven't be able to identify such an app on my stock Galaxy Nexus, however. Has anyone else run into this and found a resolution for the problem?

i have also run into the problem...not in every day use, but when i am taking a LOT of pics (like at a park, or at Disney or something) rebooting took care of it, but it just came back after another 10 pics or so.
FWIW, i haven't had the issue since going to 4.0.4 but i also haven't tried taking a ton of pics. got a baseball game on Sunday (Go Tigers!!!) so maybe i will try snapping a bunch of pics then and report back
Hey all, just wondering if any solutions have surfaced.
This happens to my Galaxy Nexus only when I open the camera app from the lock screen (by sliding left instead of right). I can use the camera fine when I do that, but then the next time I go to open the camera app from the icon on the homescreen i get the "Camera Error: Cannot connect to Camera" pop-up. Took me forever to track this down, but that is definitely the cause for me. Would love for it to stop. and for the force closes of the media process which I think are somewhat related.
I haven't heard of any solutions, but I get this error too. It seems to only happen when I access the camera from the lockscreen and then put the device back to sleep. If I hit the Home button from the camera app and THEN sleep, it doesn't seem to happen.
I just ran into this for the first time over the weekend and again today. I was both using the slide to unlock shortcut AND taking multiple pictures and letting the screen timeout on Friday night. Eventually the camera wouldn't open and after a while I had to reboot. This afternoon it happened again just trying to open the camera app from a homescreen shortcut. I am thinking its got to be related to the lockscreen access as I disabled the lockscreen right before this happened today. (i'm on 4.0.4 by the way).
I rarely ever take large #s of photos and never use the lockscreen so its interesting that this occurred the one time I did both.
