Default Camera problems

Since the recent camera update I've had nothing but trouble with the built in Google camera app. After I take a picture the Nexus 5 will often freeze with all 4 cores of the CPU churning away. The only way to restore the phone is to reboot. I don't know if it is a bug in the program or a conflict with another app or something to do with my xprivacy settings.

I tried settings / apps and "uninstall updates", reboot, but that didn't help. I finally gave up and now use "cameraMX" app which lets me take pictures without freezing the phone. So I'm OK but I wonder if others have had the same experience. I also would like to get the apk of the kitkat camera app before the latest update to install and try. Anyone have it?

Location was already turned off.

I am now using version 2.0.002 which I think is the older version. Just used the camera now to test it and it worked fine. Yesterday using the updated camera, it constantly froze so I could not even take one picture and needed to reboot constantly. I assume location was also turned off in that updated version too. Will not update again to find out.

Google camera continues to cause me problems! I've given up on it. CameraMX works fine and even takes clearer pictures.
