Default Re: 64gb sd support?

What about recording in 1080?
Will the mb/s be affected when recording and saving the file or that doesn't matter?
And, will the videos kbps quality be reduced?
Also once youve recorded in 1080 for xx amount of time and you have a file thats over 4gb, will the fat32 be able to transfer that file onto a pc?

Thanks everyone, another user from esato.com - im still there

and I wonder if the Z will support 64gb sd cards. Overall it looks like a great phone but with only 16gb internal, I would never even consider it without 64gb support. Thoughts?

BTW, I searched all the forums and it doesn't look like its been talked about much.
I can now confirm the xperia Z is working with a 64GB micro SD card. I work at vodafone HQ in London, we have the final version of the device and we are currently testing the device with our network and apps ect. My boss was demonstrating the device to interns and other technical officals, and when i went on his demo device, i seen that he had a 64GB class 10 HDHC micro sd card. I think its due to the way the card is formatted, i think he formatted using exFAT, and NOT fat32, i am yet to confirm this but this is amazing news !!

exFAT didn't work for me... Perhaps that Z is running newer firmware, mine is dated January 4th.

Yes, that formats it in Fat32

And currently, all androids only support fat32 in external sd. CM is trying to support ext4 too, exfat is MS's propriety, and you can't distribute a phone which supports exfat without paying MS.
