    I want my wife to be able to change on the fly which memory is written to when taking movies and pictures (sim or SD). I've not been able to figure out how that might be done other than removing the SD card. Can anyone enlighten me? I've done bing searches and poked around on the Samsung pages but have come up empty. Android 8.0.0 on Galaxy S9+

    If you start up the camera app and touch the cog icon (settings) you find a storage location option and there you can (as you say) change the location on the fly.

    Thanks JAy. Works like a champ. When I went to the storage location in the camera app the first time, it looked like the phone storage was greyed out. Turns out, I was seeing it as "not" highlighted. Tapped it and it switched to the highlighted destination.
