Other repair shops have confirmed this. As of right now you cannot replace the camera but some of us think it’s a software bug. We’ll just have to wait and see what happens.

All parts in iphone 12 are paired to the motherboard and cant be replaced by yourself, because only apple can pair new parts to iphones motherboard.

I’m sorry to say this, but Apple has paired the front and rear cameras, battery, Face ID sensor, Screen, and probably more to each every iPhone with a unique serial number. That means if you take an OEM rear camera from one iPhone and install it in another, the iPhone will purposely prevent the iPhone camera app from working properly.
