    Default Set camera to store on SD card?

    I'm trying to figure out how to set the camera and camcorder apps to store pictures/movies on the SD card, but I can't find the setting. Can someone point me in the right direction? Thanks.

    Open up your camera like you're going to take a picture. Hit the menu button on your phone and the settings thing should slide out. The last picture is a set of gears. Click that and then go down to storage. Select that and change it to SD card. Should be the same steps for videos.

    icebike is correct - these settings don't exist on the EVO running 2.1-update1. If I go into 'Applications, I see the Camera app is version 7. Any other ideas?

    My apology - I'm new to the "Android way" and I'm still not used to different models having different applications. I'll repost in the EVO forum.

    It does save it on the SD card. It's under a folder named "dcim"

    Ah - thank you! What about videos? I don't see them on the SD card, so I'm assuming they're store on internal flash. Is there a way to change that?

    I have an evo, is there anyway to change the default name?
    would like prefix to be yyyymmdd (date format).
