Keyboard locks after taking 1 picture

My keyboard locks after taking 1 picture with the command raspistill -o image.jpg I have to power down to regain control. I see the picture I took in the file menu.

Almost definitely a power problem. The camera module takes about 200mA and tends to break the camel's back as far as marginal power supplies are concerned.

Don't know what I was doing wrong, ran the update again and everything is OK now.
