Camera is blurry now

I'm at Disney with the family. Camera was working perfect. Accidentally dropped the phone on a carpeted floor.

No damage at all to the phone.

Now the camera can no longer focus. All photos are blurry.

Tried a hard reset tried leaving it off for a while.

Could not have happened at a worse time.

Any one have any ideas for a fix ?

Ill be going to the apple store when I get back but kinda screwed until then.

Please HELP !!!!

Drop it again to set it back to how it was.

The drop probably caused an issue with the hardware. If you go to the Apple store, and tell them you dropped it and then started having blurry photos, then they may charge you $150-$200, if you don't have AppleCare+. Now on the other hand if you don't recall dropping it or anything, and started having blurry photos, they may replace it for free.
