SDXC cards (ie SD cards > 32GB) are mandated to come pre-formatted with 
exfat, and all devices advertising support for SDXC must support exfat. 

There's no inherent reason why they can't be formatted as fat32; indeed 
if you format the card in the camera it'll almost certainly be fat32.

(BTW, this is why you see a lot of devices that claim to only support SD 
 cards up to 32GB..)
