On my N5 in the RC channel the back camera does not work at all (just black screen), if i switch to front camera AND i switch rotation (turn phone) i get an image, but it mostly freezes. Could be a hardware error or a software bug...
Can someone confirm this behavour?

@htc_tattoo hi, it's a well-known issue and the fixed is targeted for OTA-6 (https://github.com/ubports/ubuntu-touch/issues/611)
@advocatux A little correction :

@domubpkm oops I left that last '1' out when I copy&pasted that URL ^_^
It's fixed now. Thank you!
I've noticed an apparent camera problem with my Nexus 4 running OTA 5. This surprised me as the camera issue was meant to be fixed in OTA 5. My problem was that photos taken by the rear camera were black. This puzzled me because the camera was working well enough to compose the photo. Further investigation revealed that the issue did not occur if the flash was turned off. I concluded that the problem might be caused by light from the flash being ducted to the lens via the flexible silicone gel phone protector. This had a generous cut-out for the lens/flash. To test my theory, I removed the gel protector and this completely cured the problem.
