Front facing camera crashes phone

Hey guys, i've been having some trouble lately with taking pictures on my front facing camera. I'm using the t-mobile variant of the samsung galaxy s3 (its actually from wind, but theyre the same). The last rom i had installed was cyanogenmod, and it was working fairly well, except every once in a while, when i took a picture or video from the front facing camera, the phone would crash immediately and reboot. I tested this with many different camera applications and they all had the same result. I decided that i would try a different rom to see if that was the issue, so i installed the latest version of Carbon. The problem persisted, and it even got worse. Now every time i take a photo using the front facing camera, the phone will crash and reboot instantly. I read around, and there appears to be some issues with snapchat and such, but i dont think that is my problem as this is occuring with every camera application i have. I have also checked out some other threads related to this issue, and some seem to have the same problem, with no real solution. Apparently a temporary fix seems to be clearing the application data, but even that doesn't work for me. If i could guess, i would say it has something to do with custom roms in general as i have seen no reports of a stock rom phone having this issue, or perhaps a gapps issue, but those are just some thoughts.

Some Info:

Model Number: SGH-T999
Android Version: 4.4.2
Carbon Version: CARBON-KK-NIGHTLY-20140316-0304

I'd be happy to provide any extra info needed. Thanks so much guys, it would be great for me and all the others that have this issue if there's some way to fix this problem. I'll try to be as active as i can to provide any info or test any possible solution for everyone. It seems like a big problem for a lot of people.
