Yo, so after like several months of using my touch, the camera is now frozen and unusable. It is stuck at the shutter screen thingy .

Im not sure of the cause, but I have resetted my ipod, turned it fully off for about 15 min. and restored the settings. Now im stumped because its summer and i have no camera !

I just needa know what else i can do to fix my problem and maybe even the cause.

Thanks people !

    Try first restoring the iPod from backup. If still problem then restore the iPod to factory defaults/new iPod.   If still a problem make an appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store.  The "stuck shutter" is a not uncommon problem.  To find more about it, use the communities search function in the upper right and search for: stuck AND shutter.
