Sony handycam HDR CX450 (XAVC S) editing software + more

I have just bought a Sony (handycam) HDR CX450. I haven't received the camcorder yet but I have a couple of questions.

This is not a 4K camcorder. It's a 2K or more wellknown as a 1080p Full HD. As I have understand the best video and sound quality will be in XAVC S format so my first question is - what is the best video (PC) software - and easiest to use - to editing this format including minimum system requirements?

If I shall film and save BOTH XAVC S and MP4 at the same time, which SanDisk SDXC shall I use? Is SanDisk Extreme Pro UHS 1 V30 170MB/sec Class 10 good enough?

Thanks and bye...

The latest version of Corel - VideoStudio 2021 has just come out. Maybe worth a look.
All editing software has a steep learning curve but Corel support their programs with a range of tutorials.

For a software with a low learning curve, take a look at this video:

I am editing UHD 25p with a 10 year old i3-2100 with this software. So no problem for any PC with Full-HD resolution.
