SDHC -> exFat

Issue #1395 invalid
One Percent created an issue

So I formatted my SDHC to exFat via win7. So far so good and performance seems a tiny bit improved.

What I'm wondering is if there is any truth to the SD format utility and them saying that built in format is wrong and will cause performance loss? All I notice is that allocation size is 32kb on both Fat32 and exFat but windows default is something else. I kept it 32kb. No lost performance that I can see.

Does the SD formatter do ANYTHING else? Will camera internally format SDHC as fat32? I know the SD utility does and won't let you pick exFat.

What are your experiences?

Also if you stream join 2 4gb MOV files will the built in player play the whole thing? I can only stream cut to AVI or MP4 so I haven't been able to try it.
