Yes it will. This camcorder comes with a InfoLITHIUM® (NP-FV50) Battery.
Your camcorder operates only with an “InfoLITHIUM” V series battery packs

NP-FV50 / NP-FV70 / and NP-FV100 are all compatible with your camcorder.

Flash memory has no moving parts and has less heat requirements, consuming less power giving you a longer battery life. The trade-off is storage size. you can compensate for this by adding up to a 32GB removable memory card (Memory Stick PRO Duo media, SD/SDHC media).
 
Products from my answer
Sony - 32GB Memory Stick PRO Memory Card - Black
 
 
 
Sony - 16GB Secure Digital (SD) High Capacity (SDHC) Class 4 Memory Card
 
 
 
Sony - 2GB Memory Stick PRO Duo Memory Card

Yes, it can go 240fps - fast moving subjects and actions, which cannot be captured under the ordinary shooting conditions, can be shot in smooth moving slow-motion. Press START/STOP on the [Smth Slw REC] screen and a 3-second movie is recorded as a 12-second-slow-motion movie.

Question

does this have a direct youtube feature for downloading?

I want to buy this camcorder because of the optical lense. I know it's one of the best if not the best type of lense out there. Now the question is wether or not i can download my recorded videos to youtube directly from this video camera. I have read that other video recorders have twitter, facebook, and youtube software; i just need to know if it's easy to do and if it has the direct ability.

Yes, direct uploading to your favorite Social Media Site is easy once the included Picture Motion Browser software is installed. without the included software installed you will not be able to directly upload.
