I have used the camera for a day at a sports event, turning it on and off and capturing quite a lot of video and did not run the battery dead. I don't have an exact time figure but the battery seems quite capable of keeping up with a day of recording stuff.

You can do that, and each clip will be saved as either a SD or HD video file.

You can also purchase larger memory cards if you want more HD content. The F80 camcorder supports SD, SDHC, and SDXC cards.

Yes, you can take pictures and video with the Samsung F80 Camcorder.

Microsoft Windows XP SP2, Windows Vista, or Windows 7 are all supported.

Since the video file can also be H.264, Mac computers can use and playback the video files, however Mac editing software is not supplied.

You can use a battery when portable, or plug it in while you're at home.

Either way, you can have recording time without electricity, but you'll get longer times if the camera records while it is plugged in.

You are able to record in low-light situations, although like other cameras, if there is absolutely no light present, there will be no video playback possible.
