Default LG G3 camera wobbling / making cracking sounds

I've been using G3 D855 for about 2 months and faced a strange camera issue.

When I open either LG camera app or Google camera app, the picture is wobbling and the laser thing makes cracking noises. It never really focuses and makes blurry wobbling photos

You can see it in action here:

Does this mean that my phone is dead and I need a new one ?

Or is this a software problem ?

Sometimes the camera works fine, but most of the time it doesn't.

You're probably out of the DOA period since its two months old. If it's a hardware issue, LG will repair/replace the camera as long as it's under warranty. Try giving it to your dealer or service center.

Wow...that sure looks and sounds like a hardware failure to me !
I would be real careful where I was pointing it.
