This is my code to make the camera works. You may try this.

 private void activeTakePhoto() {
        Intent takePictureIntent = new Intent(MediaStore.ACTION_IMAGE_CAPTURE);
        startActivityForResult(takePictureIntent, REQUEST_IMAGE_CAPTURE);

    protected void onActivityResult(int requestCode, int resultCode,
                                    Intent data) {
        super.onActivityResult(requestCode, resultCode, data);
        switch (requestCode) {
            case REQUEST_IMAGE_CAPTURE:
                if (requestCode == RESULT_LOAD_IMAGE && resultCode == RESULT_OK & null != data) {

                Bitmap thumbnail = (Bitmap) data.getExtras().get("data");
                ByteArrayOutputStream bytes = new ByteArrayOutputStream();
                thumbnail.compress(Bitmap.CompressFormat.JPEG, 90, bytes);
                //to generate random file name
                String fileName = "tempimg.jpg";

                try {
                    photo = (Bitmap) data.getExtras().get("data");
                    //captured image set in imageview
                } catch (Exception e) {
