What hardware is this being tested on?
Can you attach a picture that was taken that exhibits the problem?

Yeah, I had the same on mako again. The weird part is that the photo displays fine when it scrolls away to the right, but not later in the gallery or the photo roll.

Stumbling into this in the wild on mako r297, not able to reproduce immediately. This was only happening with flash on FWIW, nothing relevant in camera-service logs.

Stashing some logs, let me know if any would be helpful.

Please check if this is the same bug as bug #1322121.
