Yeah, put in on my motorcycle mount last night for the first time. Just went down the street to get gas and didn't even ride for 15 minutes. The camera started going nuts this morning. Seems to have stopped for now, but for a few hours I couldn't open the camera without it buzzing and constantly trying to refocus. This is pretty sad. I rod with my Samsung Galaxy S3 using the same mount for a year and a half with no issue at all.
mounted mine last night on the way to see Sublime in concert. Didn't wear my glasses, so the fact that all the shots seemed out of focus, while weird, wasn't totally out of the question. But when i got home in a quiet room i heard the buzzing. Now it's toast as far as pics are concerned!
in the name of allah
first of all i 'm sorry 4 my english.
the problem is sometimes when the htc M8 falls or be on motocycle or any things which moving up & down or vibrate ......... the rear camera (4 ultra pixel)became blurry & a buzz sound appears when the camera is on .so i fix my M8 which have the same problem but unfotunetly you will have to open the M8 for fix it but it's very easy.
1-open the M8 cover (search in google)
2-remove the camera cover (very easy)
3-put some piece of tape like in the image (red color =tape piece)
4-finally its very important test the camera focus take some photoes
when the buzz sound disappears, the camera clear & focus work fine cover the camera & close the M8
until now my M8 camera work fine is like new
It's not clear exactly what you're doing with tape. I just see the word "tape" an arrow pointing to the camera. Can you clarify? So it's worked so far?

Is this what we're taking about? You can feel the vibration in your hand. Are we saying this only happens while mounted to a bike or that after mounting some time this becomes a permanent problem? Seems permanent so far for me. I did mount to my bicycle and ride often.
Has anyone successfully re-secured the camera after digging in there or replacing with a new camera? If so, details please. Thanks.
