"Camera Failed" Solution! (after hours of attempts haha)

So, ever since the June update my camera app along with many others have had the camera app freeze for a few seconds and then failing upon opening. I've tried a multitude of things, easy things such as; clearing the cache and data reset for the camera app, clearing the cache partition, safe mode tests etc etc and came up empty. Then I asked myself what would use the camera or also open when using the camera app... This led me to the solution.
In the camera app go to the settings and turn off 'scene optimizer". For some reason it's causing the camera to glitch upon opening. Samsung should fix this eventually because it's clearly something software related. Sure, starting the phone from scratch might work, but for those who don't want to deal with that annoyance, this seems to do the trick. Lemme know if it works for you.
