Hello everyone. I am running 4.4.4 on my Galaxy S4 and recently I've run into a camera issue. Every time I enter my camera it just says "Updating Camera firmware. Please wait..." then it just stays like and the camera won't come up. I haven't flashed any Roms or modified the phone in any way. I even factory reset the phone and it won't work. What can I do about this?

I think when you factory reset it wipes caches on your phone, but you could try long pressing on your camera app, go to app info and try clearing caches and data if you don't mind reconfiguring settings for your camera.

How do I reconfigure camera settings?

Well I meant like just the settings in the camera app e.g. the resolution, where you want the photos to be saved etc

Try downloading a camera app off the play store and see if it works.
