Hero 5 Session freezes when taking picture from app

My Hero 5 Session freezes if I try to capture a picture from the Capture app, The app says 'busy', neither app nor camera respond, and the camera reqires a restart by long-pressing the menu button.

The problem only occurs for pictures. Video and time-lapse works fine, but all picture commands cause the camera and app to freeze.

The problem also only occurs when using the app, using the camera buttons works fine.

The problem occurs every time I try it, also after restarts and resets, and it seems like a bug in the app.
