exFAT works with A77 too. I didn't measure the speed, not in a serius way anyways, but exFAT is much faster.

On A77, you can format the SD-card in your computer, and when you insert the card, A77 is smart enough to give a warning and recreate the Image Database (the folder structure) without reformatting it.

That's in a cardreader can the camera read that format?

Good question. According to some web research I did the answer may be NO!.



QUOTE "Disadvantages: As a relatively newer file system format, exFAT isn’t supported in older versions of Mac OS X (anything prior to 10.6.5) or anything older than Windows XP SP2.

Windows XP belongs to museum. The important part is that Windows 8, 7 and even Vista support exFAT.
