What is the greatest capacity for memory card in Gear 360? 128 GB will be working?

The camera supports up to 200GB microSD.  I have a 64GB card in my camera and the camera software estimates approximately 5 hours of full resolution dual-lens video can be recorded.  I don't know how accurate that estimate would be, and I'm sure it depends on the footage you are shooting.

 

I am at the end of my 2nd day of owning the camera and I've shot maybe 10 - 13 minutes of footage and the camera is back on the charger now.  I have played around quite a bit with the settings and just making adjustments to the lenses through the phone app Galaxy 360.  So I can not say the battery life is poor, but I could say make sure you have a micro USB cord or android phone charger handy.

 

Tonight as I was playing with controlling the camera through the Gear 360 mobile app I was notified of a firmware update for the camera.  This tells me that software updates and other notifications will be pushed through your Samsung device that is linked to your camera. I have not yet ran the update.

I am not able to transfer files from the camera directly to my Windows 10 machine.  I have connected with Bluetooth and usb cable.  Bluetooth sees the Gear 360 as 2 separate devices.  Nothing shows up when I am plugged in with the USB cable.  I feel confident this is just a software release issue, and the drivers will become available soon.

This camera has a lot of potential to impact the consumer acceptance of the current VR technologies.  $349 is a very good price for this little marvel of engineering.

I have a 256GB memory card in mine and it's working.  It's the one they gave away with the rebates for the S7 edge phone purchases.  Will it hurt anything to use that since it says it only works up to 200GB cards?
