I have had the same thing happen with my Charge. I have found that if I "back" out of the camera app (once I have taken the pic) it does not freeze up. By "backing" out, I mean pushing the little back arrow on the bottom of the phone until you get to your home screen. It's the second button from the right.
It seems to work for me, hopefully it will work for you.
