Android 4.4.4 Camera Problem

I recently updated to Android 4.4.4 on my Xperia Z1S and from then on, every time I take a picture, my camera just freezes and I have to lock and unlock in order to get out of the freeze. I haven't been able to take a picture since that time. Oh and btw, my phone is not rooted in any way.

Is there a fix for this? Or do I have to rollback to the previous version?

I am also experiencing this issue on my C6903, but not very ofter, would say hardly ever it occurs. Guess it is just application problem.

You are using a rom, its called stock.

Try forcing a repair using pccompanion.
Run it, choose software update and if it says you have the latest software click on the blue "Repair your device" in the dialog box.
This will wipe your phone but will repair the phone

I haven't had any camera issues on kit kat, it's actually better for me than it was on 4.3.
