It has predominantly affected Verizon users in America but there are reports of it happening around the world. Samsung have now released a statement saying:

“We have discovered that the issue has been seen in a very limited portion of early production Galaxy S5 units, and was caused by complications in the ROM (Read Only Memory) component which stores the information necessary to operate the camera,” 

Samsung say they have fixed the issue so it shouldn’t affect future shipments and advised affected customers to contact Samsung’s customer services or their network.
