Hi @Jason22


First please try a reboot by turning the device Off and On. 


Do you have enough storage space ?


Can you try another camera app. 


Then if the issue remains go into Settings  - Apps - Camera - Storage - Clear Data. 


If no help then turn the phone Off and from a set series of button pressess that takes you into the phones file system and clear the system cache. 


Final self help troubleshooting is to Back-up and Factory Reset. 


Very final option is to visit a Samsung service location or Samsung Experience Store who can run a diagnostic on the phone.
