You can use either. But you get what u pay for on those cheap cards and not much memory. I use the SDXC for mine and i have both the F90 andF900. The card I use is a bit pricey,$60 at Walmart, but well worth the extra money for that card. All my pictures and videos have turned out great. Very satisfied with the Samsung brand.

Specs only say it is compatible with Windows XP, Vista, & Windows 7. So you have to assume the answer is no.

Probably, the manual indicates up to win7, but that may just because of when the manual was written. Even if the camera's drivers will not work with win8, as long as there is a SD card slot on your computer, you can pull the card out of the camera and put it in your computer to get the video off that way.

Yes it has the software built into the camera. Really cool feature. Downloads the software to your pc. I use mine to upload to Facebook and Youtube. Haven't tried to write any dvd's with it yet. Yes I have filmed some of our kids football games and taken some game pictures with it too. Works great! Very happy and satisfied. I set mine to sports in the settings, but haven't tried the other settings yet.

Press menu. Now with the toggle that is on the screen that you can use to zoom in or out, move the toggle left or right to change the menu options. Move over to Settings. Once there press the toggle down or up until you see Format. Once you have Format highlighted press the toggle in toward the screen to Format the card.

When it comes to evaluating SD cards in terms of speed, the most important thing to look at is the "Class" of the card as labeled by the manufacturer. These are numerical values, indicated within a small circle, in which higher is better: Class 10 is the fastest, with Class 8 being slower, down to Class 2 which is the slowest. However, high-end cards can also use the "Ultra High Speed" or UHS-I standard, which is shown as a "1" within a "U" shape. So look for SD Cards that are Class 10 UHS-I models to ensure the fastest speeds possible. You will need a card with lots of storage space for shooting video. The best you can get is the Toshiba 32GB 32G SD SDHC EXCERIA Type 2 Class 10 Memory Card. Another good choice is the SanDisk Extreme 32 GB SDHC Class 10 UHS-1 Flash Memory Card 80MB/s (SDSDXS-032G-AFFP) that has lot of storage space.
