Hello fellow SFOS users,

I would like to store pictures taken by the camera app on SD card, which is installed and working correctly. But after opening the settings of the camera app, the dialog falsely states, that there is no SD card present. Nevertheless I have the choice between two possibilities concerning the storage: Internal storage or SD card. Selecting one or the other of these two options works as expected - the camera app stores the pictures accordingly. But after closing and reopening the settings dialog, I see the same wrong statement again.

I ask myself, if this is a problem of the German localized GUI I use or if it is more general problem. I am using SailfishOS X on Xperia X in combination with a SDXC card from SanDisk with a capacity of 200 GB. You find screenshots of what I see down below.

Does anyone have the same problem (maybe in other localisations)?

Same here, but on my XA2 the function still works even with changed back statement in the settings. You checked if the pics and vids were saved on SD card? If so, it's just a lil "optical bug" and almost never seen. ;) ... Location Germany as well.

I don't think it's related to localization, I got the same behaviour on Jolla Phone with English localization. Here's another thread: https://together.jolla.com/question/197138/bug-camera-and-upgrade-page-no-sd-card-inserted/

I think the 200Gb is the problem, more info in this question and there's also the zendesk info mentioned in this question.

It does the same for me on Xperia X and XA2. Noting to do with SD card as mine are 64Gb. However, I notice that when I take a picture, it says briefly that the picture will be save on the SD card. And both, photo and video are saved on the SD card. It does have an impact as when you want to do a back up, it says no SD card. When I go make sure the camera setting save on SD card then go back to back up, I can make a back up on the SD card. Definitely something there.
