    I'm looking for a stable 64GB MicroSD card for use in my hacked GH2.
    I primarily record video, rather than take pictures.

    The reason I want a MicroSD card is because I want to be able to review my video on my Samsung Galaxy Note 8, which only has a MicroSD card slot.

    Thanks

    I don't know if this is true of the Note 8, but something to keep in mind:

    The Samsung Galaxy SIII doesn't play well with exFAT formatted cards, which is how all 64GB cards come formatted. You can reformat to FAT32 in a computer, but I had problems with a Sandisk 64GB card formatted that way when I used it in my SIII.

    Unless you really need 64GB in one card, you might find 32GB cards to be more stable and reliable.
     
  3. The iPad will not read 64 gig SD cards.
    Been there tried that.

    The newest samsung devices are supposed to natively support sdxc/64gb cards without problems, not sure about the s3 but the Note 8 (and my tab 8) should be fine. I just ordered a 64gb uhs-1 sdxc adata from newegg for $43 (deal has ended), should be here early next week so I'll report back on that card if I remember!
