    Turn the options in the camera to auto focus not continuous. That will fix your problem

    That's a pretty cross-ROM issue right now. I know CyanogenMod was having the issue for several of its nightly builds.

    well the crazy camera is back... ive tried two different roms. cyanogen and UD...also changing settings from continious to auto doesnt work for me.. its still jsut as bad if i do that. this is getting to be very frusturating.

    It's beginning to sound like you have a faulty camera. Try making a nandroid and flashing a stock rooted Rom, take a few pictures and see if it continues.
