I'll clean it up a little then fire it on Github. It's only tested on iPad and 
uses a forked version of SimpleCam which you can already see at:

>                 Key: CB-11784
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CB-11784
>             Project: Apache Cordova
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Plugin Camera
>    Affects Versions: 2.2.0
>         Environment: Cordova CLI version 6.3.0
> cordova-plugin-camera 2.2.0
> cordova-ios 4.2.0
> iOS 9.3.5
> iPad Mini 1
>            Reporter: Christopher McCabe
> When opening and closing the camera plugin without taking an image, the 
> memory allocated under 'Other Resources' grows without ever being cleaned up.
> Testing on an iPad mini 1, when I open and close the camera plugin without 
> taking a picture I can crash the app. This usually takes about 130-150 times 
> opening and closing the camera to cause a crash. The leak is present on newer 
> devices but the app is harder to crash due to the much larger device memory.
> Steps to reproduce:
> 1. create an app with the camera plugin
> 2. run the app on an iPad mini 1
> 3. open the camera plugin to take a picture, not from the gallery
> 4. click cancel
> 5. repeat 3 + 4 until the app crashes
> It appears that Jetsam kills the app for not being a good memory citizen.
> EDIT: I've tested this further and it appears on my iPad mini 3 as well 
> although it's harder to trigger. I've included a sample app that can be used 
> to view the problem
> https://github.com/modohash/cordova-camera-leak
> By clicking the 'trigger camera' button and then clicking cancel and 
> repeating the process you can see that while the app memory usage stays 
> steady, the other processes accumulate memory.
