Problem Details:

An error popup displayed when trying to take a picture using the Burst Shot or Shot & More mode on Samsung Galaxy S5 and the phone cannot take a picture.

Possible Cause:

Such error in taking photos using the Galaxy S5's Burst Shot or Shot & More mode could likely be due to invalid filename or camera folder name.
