I want to record longer videos on my camera. I know that the FAT file system only allows for 4GB, less than 30 minutes on HD. So I reformatted the card (San Disk 80 MB/s - 16GB SDHC) to NFTS but the camera did not take it. I reformatted to exFAT and while the camera accepted it, I could not record a video bigger than 4GB. Is this a hard limit??

Is there an explanation for this? I read that exFAT goes well beyond the 4GB file size limit. So I don't get how the camera takes an exFAT formatted card but still keeps that 4GB FAT32 limit.
Also, how could I tell with other cameras that they go beyond this limit?
