Camera not working when called from other apps

#1
My iPhone 6+ has a recurring problem that may be iOS 8 rather than hardware, I'm not sure.

If I pull up the camera in another app like Messages it works fine to take a picture, but after the first time it doesn't work any more until I force close the app and restart it. I first noticed this repeatedly in Messages and now I also see the same behavior in other apps including RunKeeper, which allows you to tap a camera icon to take a photo. It works for one photo, but the second time it changes to the Camera app screen but the display is black, and buttons don't work except the cancel button:

Anyone else experiencing this behavior? As a check I'm going to remove my JB and test again.

Hmmm. So it's not the JB specifically but perhaps an app or maybe even the TLC Memory issue on my 6+.
The TLC issue on the Plus seems to be pretty sporadic, from what I've read. My 128GB Plus doesn't appear to suffer from the reported issue.

I set up as a new phone and it was fine using Messages. I restored from backup (without even syncing anything) and it happened right away in Messages. It apparently is not a JB thing, but it is related to something in my previous backup. I guess I'll set up as new and go through adding all my email addresses and setup stuff manually What a pain.

In contrast, I restored from backup.
