Lightbulb have a nice 32gb card- camera wont cooperate?

Merry Christmas all!

I have a new sd card (32bg ultra-recognized and have moved pics to it thru file manager), yet no matter the stock camera settings (save to sd card), the photos are put on the phone.

Also, i do get often closes on the stock app when i rotate the view from land-to-portrait. I have always experienced this.

can i reload the stock camera (apk??) or is there an alternative that works?

help is welcomed

The SD card slot on this phone is wonky at best. On two different occasions now I have lost dozens of photos that were stored on the card. When I view them in Gallery they are somewhat blurry. When I put the card in the computer to view they disappear.

Try reseating the card or format it again?

tried it. I can move photos to it (have 500 now on there), but even with the camera storage setting correct, it creates a new folder "camera"

Try formatting the card to FAT32.

I did it, but also noticed that the folder created by the camera app is entitled "camera". My short-sightedness led me to believe that this meant it was rooted to the camera storage. After removed the sd card (and having formatted it to fat32),Ive noticed it is a folder thats placed on the sd card.

success, I guess!
