Yes, I use Windows Vista and 7 and it is compatible with both although I don't use the camera's software. I remove the memory card and transfer the files through a card reader on my computers.

After reading the manual, I don't believe you can do this. I think you have to have a card in place and have the camera in record mode. You can probably have a feed from the camera output to feed a live video but I think the card size will limit how long you could do this. Hope this helps.

This can be used to record video, but not as a capture device for other devices, like TVs or computers.

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.

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.

Charging is based on the amount of charge left in the battery. Usually several hours will fill the battery completely.
