Maximum SD Card Capacity for HF G30 and G40?

Qoncussion

I own two G40s and one G30. I will be doing a multi-day video shoot, during which I will have little time to swap out SD cards. I always shoot using the second SD card as a full resolution backup, so I need to max out the size of my cards for this shoot. The cameras will be plugged into A/C power - so battery capacity is not an issue.

Does anyone know the "actual" maximum card size these camcorders can handle, without any issues?

Thanks!

Thank you, Tim!

These cameras can take SD cards larger than 128GB, I believe it goes up to 2TB from what I read.
