have you dropped the iphone? sounds like the camera needs replacing, but first I'd try a hard reset.. hold home and power together for 10 seconds until the apple appears and then release buttons and allow to reboot.

If this doesn't work then I'd look for a new part (fairly cheap) and follow the guide here iPhone 3GS Camera Replacement

This was driving me crazy for the longest time. I've tried many things but what worked for me was to just keep your browser history cleared, any cache as well. My cam has been working reliably ever since. This may not solve your problem, but it might! Good luck!
