Camera PLEASE Help!!!!

I am currently running CyanogenMod 11 (M3) for t-mobile. I really need help fixing my camera. I was having problems with my camera earlier but now it is constantly force closing. Just recently the camera updated to Google camera and I was hoping the force would not occur any more, but now it's even worse. If any ideas how to fix PLEASE tell me because I have many needs for the camera. This how the problem occurs: I try to take a picture and it will take it then it will freeze and I have to kill the app. Then I try to restart the app but I get an "Camera error: cannot connect to the camera." The problem was really bad after I flashed the ROM so I deleted that camera and flashed a "better" one. I try to use the other features of this updated Google camera but none of them work such as: lens blur, panorama or photo sphere . I would really love having these features working or even taking regular pictures without any force closes. I have to use the camera everyday so please help as soon as possible. Please anyone help me solve this problem!!!! (Current Phone: Samsung Galaxy S3 SGH-T999)

Thanks for the help in advance!!!!

I tried the new Google camera on C-ROM and had the same problem. Like the previous poster said, go back to CM stock camera.

If you really want to stick with CM 11, maybe try flashing Ktoonsez's kernel. I've been having this camera issue (that's only temporarily fixed if I reboot) for a while, but yesterday I flashed KT747 and it's been working since (knock on wood).
