How to get Galaxy S5 to store photos on new 64 gig SD card?

Just purchased a SanDisk 64 gig SD card for my Galaxy S5. When I go to Camera settings, there is no option for Storage displayed.

You need to make sure your SD card is properly formatted for use in the Samsung Galaxy S5. Once you've done that, it should work. If it does not, restart the device, and try again.

Also, note that there are two Settings menus on the camera option, and you need to be in the second one to be able to modify your default storage. Please use the following steps to save photos to your SD card by default:

    .
    As the Samsung Galaxy S5 allows you to choose different sized memory cards, in most cases, the default will be your device (web browsers, music, and such). You can change any of these settings by accessing the Settings function for an item, and then setting the default storage to your SD card.

I don't have a question, but I have a comment?

I had a lot of issues with grey photos. After researching this problem, I found that saving photos straight to the SD card creates the problem. I am now trying to change that setting back to 'save to device'.
