Default [Q] Phone turns off when taking a picture

This has been doing my head in for quite some time, sometimes when I take a picture and flash/focus and then shoot it turns my phone off, to the point I can't turn it back on and I have to battery pull.

I thought it was a ROM related issue (at the time I was on Ultima ROM 4.2) so just recently I've upgrades to 4.3.2 KitKat and it does exactly the same. It's not an app issue although it does it far less in MX Camera then stock camera.

Does anybody know why? it's driving me crazy

I figured i can just flash the .tar file from Odin and reboot into the new recovery and then flash the ROM but the .tar is nowhere to be found and i'm pretty out of practise with all the flashing ROMs business, I don't know what my alternatives are. I'm updating from 4.1.2 and that's only because the bug on this app is doing my head in (turns phone off sometimes when flash focus taking a picture, got to battery pull)

phone is stuck in recovery until some chap helps me out

phone is scaring me now lol, had trouble getting it into recovery then. i can see the brick light and its glowing
much appreciated
