Just installed a 32gb SD card in my Samsung S2. Is there a way to configure ICS to save all pictures/videos to the SD card instead of internal memory?

Have you looked in the settings for your Camera app? – Matthew Read Feb 19 '13 at 22:21
that's it - I overlooked the obvious. I can either delete this, or if you'll add this as the answer I'll select & give some karma. – a coder Feb 19 '13 at 22:41

You should be able to do this from the settings of the Camera app, rather than the system settings.

At least in most cases. I was looking for that in many device's camera apps (stock and 3rd party) where it was missing, unfortunately... – Izzy Feb 19 '13 at 23:07
@Izzy That's true. In those cases you might be able to get away with a symlink or something. – Matthew Read Feb 19 '13 at 23:22
Why didn't I get that idea myself? Thanks for the hint! – Izzy Feb 20 '13 at 7:02
