It’s not the card, the camera itself will only shoot up to 8 minute clips in 4K. However you can stop and start a new clip. If you need more than 8 continuous minutes, you can use a second camera. By putting the cameras at different focal lengths (like a closeup on one and a medium shot on the other) and having a separate audio recorder, and having one or the other of them running at all times you can cut the scenes together in the editor and have a continuous 4K video of any length. The 8 minute scene limit probably has something to do with the size of the buffer in the camera. When you stop the video it takes a few seconds to save it from the buffer to the card. A 2K frame of video is 2MP, while a 4K frame is 8MP, or 4x the data.
