    I would also try factory reset if wiping cache doesn't work.

    Anyone had trouble "Sharing" photos? I take photos, then try to (share icon) to my gmail, so I can post them to facebook or send to friends more easily. The error I get is "Error, could not upload media".

    Anyone know how to share a photo?

    A simple reboot solved my camera error.

    Mine has been doing this for weeks now too, seemingly after an update. The front camera works fine, but the back camera is messed up. I'll take 100 pics and only a few of them will actually save.

    If I use the back camera in a different camera app (downloaded a free one from Play store) it works just fine.

    What the heck is going on and how do I fix? Reboot does not help.

    I had this issue for the past week, some photos would take, others did not. I was getting worried that my OPO had some sort of built-in post- system update judge!
    Luckily it seems that clearing the cache and a reboot has done the trick (Settings>apps>Camera> Clear Cache).
    I also transferred and deleted about 200 photos (I did that after clearing the cache, before reboot, so it could even have been because it was over-full of largely rubbish photos!).
    Thanks for the guidance here.

    Hey guys,

    This is late but I recently had a similar issue after replacing my battery myself and forgetting to set the camera connector back into place. It comes off very easily on the Oneplus one. If you have a back camera issue after dropping your phone or changing your battery recently, I highly recommend opening it up and checking if the camera connector came loose.
