When I was using the camera of my Sony Xperia S, the following message popped up.

So how do you change the default save location of your camera (as highlighted with red underline)?

Note: Yes, my memory was full and the message stopped showing up after deleting some files of course. I just want to know how to change the default for CAMERA.

Well, you could try another camera app from the playstore, for sure one of it will let you change its files destination. As far as I know, Default ICS camera does not allow you to change default location. I've been looking around the db settings with sqlite, and I found one interesting you could check out (if you're root) it would be com.android.providers.media>internal.db>files –  unmultimedio Aug 9 '13 at 15:32

The problem was literally not with changing the location but with the capacity of the existing location. I freed-up some space from my SD card memory (which is hard-coded in to the mobile) and the problem went away.

I could not find any of the options provided in the other answers. There is no gear icon nor an option called Storage

For ICS, while using the camera, simply click on the gear icon, then slide down to the settings that lie below the top ones: "Storage" is next to last; click on it, and you can set it to "memory card" (changing it from "Phone").

Also, you may want to tweak the "Shutter sound" while down there to "off" to avoid that noisy clicking

When you see this message first select OK then select sub menu and it gives you options such as scenes selection, resolution, flash etc. What you got to do is slide the tile and go to the second tile. There you should be able to find data storage where you can change where you want to save your pictures at.

Alternately, the gear icon (for settings) in the slider at the bottom of the camera (where you select flash, effects, etc.) will take you to the settings dialog where you can then choose a different save slot (under Save Location).

Well, There is no such option in that sub menu. I checked that before I posted my question here. –  Sid Feb 20 '13 at 12:18
