How to Get Rid of "Camera has Stopped" Bug for Galaxy S10:
If your Camera app crashes or it shows various errors when you launch it, then you should be able to fix it yourself without needing a professional. However, if you are only a basic Android user, then you might want to get help from an advanced user.
Usually when there is a firmware problem with an Android device such as the Galaxy S10 you will end up needing to factory reset the device. The 'factory reset' steps are listed at the end of the tutorial, and you should only apply after you've exhausted all the other solutions.

Launch the Camera app again and verify the functionality. If the app continues to malfunction, then you should reboot the phone and then "force stop" the application once again.
Boot Galaxy S10 in Safe Mode and Launch Camera App:
You can boot the Galaxy S10 in Safe Mode and test the Camera app there in order to see if it works when only the basic Android settings and apps are loaded. If that's the case, then you will have to start looking for apps that you might have installed from unknown sources.
If you have recently installed any new apps, and you think that one of these might interfere with the Camera app then you should remove it right away. Also, if you have installed any 3rd party Camera app, then try to look at its Settings menu and look for any settings that might disable your device's camera app.
