I bought a Samsung Galaxy S4 i9500 and from the start I have not been able to take a picture. Whenever I open the camera application, I get the message "Warning Camera Failed". I have tried the factory reset, WANAM camera fix, various Stock Roms and I am evening running the Omera ROM right now. None of these seem to work, could this be a hardware or software issue and is there a fix for it?

Test the camera in test mode. Enter *#0*# on your dialpad and choose mega cam and see if the camera works there. If it still crashes there, then chances are it's a hardware problem.

Thanks so much otacon88. I have tried the camera in test mode and it still does not work. So it is safe to assume its a hardware problem?

If it didn't work on stock firmware I would return the phone immediately

I guess that is what I will be doing tomorrow. However I tried the front facing camera and that works. How do i remove the custom firmware that I have put and install the stock firmware back so that I do not have any issues with my warranty

Flash appropriate Stock Firmware from here ... use Odin PC to flash it.
Maybe your Camera will work after flash LOL

This XXMEA update is for the i9505 but i have the i9500. Is there a possibility of extracting the camera firmware only?
