----This is also a workaround for the cm13 "can´t connect to camera" issue----
Just download and install the app.
Don´t replace it with the stock camera, because after every system update the cm11 camera will be overwritten.
Just deactivate the stock camera
To fix panorama mode:
To make it work Panorama, you must copy libjni_mosaic.so in system/lib/libjni_mosaic.so with permissions rw-r--r-- or 644

Or you can copy in the folder where he was installed the camera.apk, the folder of the camera in lib/arm/libjni_mosaic.so with permissions rwxr-xr-x or 755 (folder arm with permissions rwxr-xr-x or 755)

Lib works for Camera2.apk from cm11 and CameraNext.apk from Cyanogen

I leave lib (decompress), Camera2 and CameraNext, They are installed as a normal apk

Camera2 and CameraNext I've changed he old icon of the Gallery by the Gallery from Marshmallow

For CM11:
Download the camera2.apk and go to /system/priv-app via any root browser (i recommend es file explorer)
Search the old camera2.apk and delete it.
Now copy the downloaded camera2.apk back to /system/priv-app to replace the old apk with the new one.
I recommend a reboot now, but should work without it.
After this you´ll never see the "can´t connect to camera" bug.

Worth a try though it depends on which camera hardware is in your S3.

I hope this thread is on the correct forum.

I found a simpe way to get the camera app perfectly working on the actual CM11 snapshot for the Samsung Galaxy S3.
I only copied the camera2.apk from my HTC One mini 2´s CM11 to the Samsung Galaxy S3.
Then deleted the camera2.apk on /system/app and replace the camera app from the HTC One mini 2.
Now i can take photos without problems and reboots!

Here you can see that the fix is working: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f4KRlOjuPEk&feature=youtu.be

Replace the camera2.apk in /system/app with the downloaded one. You have to delete the old one first.
