Default [Q] Help, significant lag after update to the latest google camera

Hi folks, it seems to be a rare issue but it is drving me crazy every time I use the camera.

I am on stock not rooted kitkat 4.4.2, the issue is only seen after update the google camera to the latest version with the new ui change.

Now every time I launch the camera app, the phone could hang up for 1 to 3 seconds without doing anything (low possibility). There is a guarantee (100%) that the phone will lag for more than 2 seconds when I take the first two photos in normal mode (the screen just freeze at the time when the photo swiping animation takes place after hit the capture button). Also, it is very often to see the similar lag when I browse the recent photos in the camera app.

I tried to reinstall the latest update; clear the app data + cache, but neither works for me. Now I just go back to the old camera, all the freezes/lags are gone!

Please can anyone suggest some possible solutions? I really like the new camera ui. Thanks!

My new camera app is pretty buggy too actually, random freezes, etc...

I think it'll get better with time.
