Camera - front/rear works in video but freezes in photo mode

Hello guys,

Recently i've encountered an issue possibly related to cameras on iPhone 5s 16GB - iOS 8.1. The problem is while entering photo mode (4:3 or any other) the camera app freezes (still can switch between video/photo modes but nothing on display) and requires restart using multitasking geastures.

I was expecting this to be camera issues front or rear, but how is it possible that when i enter video mode and switch between cameras - front/rear it works flawlessly?

Why is just photo mode not working, but video does?

I've heard theory about damaged pins on logic board for front or rear camera, is it possible? If this is the case, why is the video mode still working?

Did anyone of you encounter similar issue and can help me out?

Answer this question I have this problem too

I had the same problem with my iPhone 5 32GB.

I supposed it was something hardware related, but hard resetting and upgrading the software solved me the problem (iOS 8.3 => iOS 8.4).

Not sure if it could be solved only restoring the phone to the previous version installed.

iPhone 6 plus (10.3.3) changed lcd but now cameras are working only in video and slo-mo features. I can change between front/back and modes in either cameras. I already changed both cameras and exact same problem. should I try restoring thru DFU?
