    My iPhone 6+ camera seems to have gotten motion sickness. When composing a photo or video the image has moving waves through it. It's like the image stabilization is floating on the ocean or something.

    I've taken some video & it's a little nauseating to watch, but something's definitely broken.

    Also, if you put your ear to the camera while it's ready to take a photo you can hear a whirring, ticking sound.

    I've rebooted the camera & it doesn't help.

    Also: it's happening only with the iSight camera, not the front camera.

    Also, this happened once before & then healed itself. It's now not fixing itself.

    Any ideas?

    Whoa that is really nuts. Definitely looks like a physical defect, I doubt a software glitch is responsible for it. Corte Madera Apple Store is only a few miles away from there, looks like you will have to take it in.

    Yeah, looks like a physical thing to me too. I'm guessing it has to do with the Optical Image Stabilization. I'm curious to hear from people here before I take it in. Doesn't sound like it's "camera-gate" if no one else has suffered from it, but it's a pretty weird failure. The phone hasn't been mistreated at all.
