Yes, SDXC cards can be used.

However, there are some restrictions for importing and exporting images stored on the SDXC memory cards. When the camera is connected to another device (such as a computer or other device) using a USB cable, the device must be compatible with the file exFAT format adopted for SDXC memory cards. Additionally, when inserting an SDXC memory card into the card slot of another device, the card slot must be compatible with SDXC memory cards in order to import any video or images.

WARNING: There is a risk of data loss. If you insert an SDXC memory card into a non-compatible device, a message recommending to format the card may appear. In this case, do not format the card. Otherwise all the data will be lost.
