Looks like there may some dust particles that have made it inside your camera module. I had the same issue and fixed it by changing the iPhone 5 rear camera.

Good luck!

If the warranty had expired, replace the camera yourself

You can open it up, take some alcohol on a quip and clean out the camera, I agree with the dust comment.

Do not attempt to clean the camera. This is a sensor problem, cleaning won't improve anything, but potentially making it worse

I agree that it's most likely a sensor issue as well, but it COULD be some debris (dust, etc) behind the lens cover as well. I'd recommend against using alcohol or touching the camera directly. I would instead used compressed air to clear the debris.
