    I just looked at the storage I can see mounted when I have my 920 connected and it lists the file system as Generic Hierarchial

    Since it's the NT kernel guess would be NTFS if that's what you're after.

    MicroSD cards use FAT, FAT32, exFAT, and NTFS.

    I though I read that internal storage uses NTFS.

    unfortunately most or all WP8 base on FAT32 (like almost all phons) that why its have the 4gb limit for producing filles - try recording hd video and see what happend after half of hour..
    (u can still watche large filles)

    WP8 offers MTP protocol only on USB connection, not Mass Storage. So, there is no way to tell what kind of storage your phone uses.

    It does use MTP but I assume it's a variation of MTP that enables access to the storage on the device as well as the SD Card.

    The 4gb limit is because the processors are 32bit and can not address more than~4gb. You can't watch files over 4gb on 32bit processors (try it on a 360).

    You would need a 64bit processor, which currently only one phone has, iPhone 5S. Do we really need more than 4GB at this stage? Also There's not many phones out there with more than 2.

    32-bit Windows (PC side) has long been able to access > 4GB files with the right file system. Don't confuse memory addressability with file addressability.

    MTP is a media file exchange format that shields the low level file system details from the protocol. So, it is not possible to access the file system details via it. You don't need variant of MTP in order to access both storage locations.

    29 minutes limit are due to video recording device licensing restrictions. Even compact cameras and DSLRs have this (unlike specific videocameras). FYI, the iPhone 4S with a 32bit processor can record >8gb of HD video in one setting (more than 1h 30). You just need the space and the battery. You get a single .mp4 (not split files) as the filesystem supports this.

    Is it a license restriction or simply an EU import tariff?

    From who? All I know is rather an EU import duty issue. See here 30 minute limit on video capture could end if WTO group gets its way: Digital Photography Review
