Backup camera out of place?

Just today I noticed an issue with my 2014 backup camera. The aim is off and it is showing the bumper and less of what's behind. This also skewed the angle and is messing me up when backing into the driveway, for example.

Any ideas?

Well...I'd be trotting in and having it fixed under warranty...

I think there's a thread on here were some poor fellow had trouble with his wife thinking that the camera was the latch for the tailgate and kept pressing it in. Could that be the cause?

Regretfully the warranty opportunity passed by over 11,000 miles worth of driving ago

If someone pressed on it the reason would have been to try and damage it...

Might wanna check to see if there is anything obviously loose back there.
The camera should not move if you push gently on it.
Other possibilities would be you've been tapped in the rear in a parking lot and it is now permanently aimed a bit downward.
