Saving photos and videos to SD card by default on XA2 Ultra

I can not find a setting on my phone to set the camera to save photos and video to SD card. Is there a way to do this?

Thank you @Burl for your quick reply!

If you scroll that menu down all the way to the bottom you should be able to find the option called Data storage. Slightly smiling Face

Hi @Burl, let me see if i can be of any help here! Slightly smiling Face

 

In order to change default storage for pictures and videos in the Camera app, please open the Camera app > Tap the cog wheel in the bottom left corner of the display > Tap More > Tap Data storage. In this menu you can choose either Internal storage or SD card as default storage.

Let me know if that helps! Slightly smiling Face

Thanks for your responce but my camera app does not have that opption under MORE. Under MORE all my app has is Object tracking and Auto capturing and under Common settings there is nothing.

Re: Saving photos and videos to SD card by default on XA2 Ultra

My phone's been saying that internal storage is nearly full and that I should get an SD card.  How do I know what kind and size to buy?
