Does it need to work with a specific VMS? Because that would be the other major constraint.
Is this for a parking lot surveillance application? :)
To answer your question:The Vivotek FD 8372
I tried to confirm with the rep in my territory if it can hold 128 GB SD cards and was unable to but I will let you know when I confirm that for a fact.
It needs to be at least SDXC, which many cameras are not. Interestingly, though, the Vivotek camera is listed as SDXC but still does not support 128GB. This may be an issue for other cameras as well.
See SD card for surveillance tutorial.
It seems one key problem is the use of MicroSD form factor in many domes. While full size SDXC cards are readily available, micro SD cards are not.

How about the Samsung SNV-6084R? It supports SDXC, and my rep told me it would support 128GB cards (I don't see this written anywhere, though, so confirm this).
SD MEMORY CARD CHOICES
Thank you all for your input.
We surveyed a few manufacturers and here are there responses:
- Axis: 64GB 'currently'
- D-Link: 32GB
- IQinVision: 64GB noting "We have not done testing on 128GB or higher as there has not been requests yet."
- Hikvision: New value series 64GB as well as new / upcoming products. Others - 32GB
- Lilin: 64GB
- "VIVOTEK cameras can support SDXC by upgrading driver. We tested few 128G SDXC cards successfully for recording. However, we may need to have more tests before we officially announce it."
So it seems 64GB is the most common max today.
John did you call Samsung? If not I will get you the info what is currently working right now with what is availabale in the field.
I will respond here later why we have shown this on existing "analog cameras installs" we are talking in the 40 camera range.
