Odd. Haven't seen a device that wouldn't let you save pictures to external, if it supports them. Have you tried another camera app to see if it is the app or it's something odd with the rom? Also, clear the data and cache of the Camera and Gallery apps in Settings > Applications > All and see if that makes any difference.
Need some help, advice, something fixed? Hit me up on Hangouts @ es0tericcha0s and check out my site: http://mobilemojo5280.com
