Anyone knows the answer?

Can the camera fw be updated?

And more importantly: Did anyone try to hack the camera firmware?

Possibly yes but needs software intervention .... so samsung should update the camera software and do HDR video.

Hi!
Bumping this thread. I am recently experiencing issues with video recording on my note 3. When i go from camera to video recording i get a warning message: recording failed.
Is there a way to update cam fw? Has anyone had this kind of a problem?
Edit: I also cannot use the Dual camera mode. I receive the same error message.
I can take photos but can't record videos.

Update your modem according to your rom then it should work again without problems!

Camera firmware is grayed out because there is no new firmware. I believe its not related to internet at all. When I had S2 and S3 it worked only when ODIN firmware included new camera firmware. So when you update to new firmware via ODIN, check if update is available

interesting, why the camera firmware does not update with the phone firmware.
