Arrow Camera problems!!!

Hi, im just new here and I've been having problemswith my s4. Nope i ddidn't root it. The camera is acting strange lately. Sometimes the camera stops and the screen just freezes. Here are the examples of the problems below

1st problem.
I took this picture in a dark room just after the camera freezed. This is a bit weirddd.

Second problem is that some of the pictures appear in half or some parts are erased. Just like these two pictures. I dunno what caused this problm. It is ANNOYING because it's like corrupting my pictures.


I Need help. Please looking forward to your answers.

Try restore to factory settings, otherwise replace the whole camera, its not so expensive http://www.etradesupply.com/oem-sams...ck-camera.html

Did you drop your phone recently?
Try to update the frameware using "Kies". if it didn't help, its probably hardware issue, return it to the seller.

If the live image on screen looks OK I would say you probably have a faulty SD card.

Do you store images on ext SD? If so change the storage location to internal SD and see if it still happens. Or vise versa.

Maybe try backing up data and formating internal or ext SD to see if it helps.
