Hey @Kanefur! Make sure that the phone's software is up to date by heading to: Settings > Software Update > Download Updates Manually. Now, could you run a Hardware Test on the device? Go to: Samsung Members app > Press Get help > Press Interactive checks > Camera. Once completed, please share the results.

Hi @Samuel_1017. Do you also have the Galaxy S10 Plus, or a different phone model? Let's try a Hardware test to see if the issue is present during this. You can check this by going into the Phone app and dial *#0*# > Select 'Mega cam'. Do let us know how you get on during this.

@Samuel_1017: Thanks for giving this a go. Let's try clearing the cache and data from the Camera app. You can do this by going into Settings > Apps > 3 dots in top right > Show system apps > Find and select the app > Storage > Select 'Clear Cache' and 'Clear Data'.
