Camera problem is gone flashing this ftf http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2688910. I think reduced ftf posted on first page not contain all drivers for 6833 LTE european version. Flashed full ftf over monx 4.3 without wipe data and all works ok now.
The system images of the Euro & Germany (which is the one I used) FTFs are the same so I think you might have fixed it inadvertently by clearing Dalvik caches.

Can someone with non-functional rear camera post their logcat before and during starting the Camera app?. I can have a look.

I tryed to wipe cache and dalvik before, i make many tries including german ftf. Flashing europe ftf with flashtool was the only thing works.

Camera bug...

I had the camera bug. The camera would open fine. All the settings seemed to work as well. The capture button even seemed to depress when I touched it, but it wouldn't capture anything. All third party cameras from the playstore did the same thing. I flashed the HK version ftf from the firmwares thread (C6833_4.4.2_HK.ftf). Then flashed 681_jackie099.img. I rebooted into recovery and flashed supersu.zip. All is well now. Camera works as it should...

Someone mentioned that the US version would fix the camera bug as well, but the download time for the US file was about two hours here.

I have added the stripped FTFs for other regions as well. The flashable zip is identical across regions so there is no need to redownload. If anyone is able to test it then let me know if they work, thanks.

The currently available regions are: Generic Europe (Germany FTF), Hong Kong, Euro & Generic US. The US FTF is for C6806.

Here is Singapore Generic FTF

https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B51NBUj0yr7Fc1N1UThab1dZd3M/edit

Please make flashable zip and stripped ftf.

Thanks fnf and NTU
Added stripped FTF for Singapore and flashable zip for US Unbranded. I didn't find any functional differences between the C6806/C6833 images aside from a few value-added APKs so I doubt flashing the US zip file will fix the camera issue. Still it would be interesting to know if it actually works so please give feedback if it works for you.
