What is your best recommendation for a transmitter to connect to the internal time code BNC out if I need to send the internal zoom F8 timecode to other cameras?
Because timecode signals are quite "hot" in nature, a proper wireless system for sending wireless timecode from the Zoom F8n Pro 8-Input / 10-Track Multitrack Field Recorder to camera would require a transmitter that is able to accept Line level signal. The Sennheiser EW 112P G4 Camera-Mount Wireless System (BH #SEEW112PG4A) is a good candidate for this task: https://bhpho.to/2y5gjmO

How is this different than the F8n besides the 32-bit float feature?
The 32-bit functionality of the Zoom F8n Pro 8-Input / 10-Track Multitrack Field Recorder is its main upgrade to Zoom's initial F8 offering. Dual A/D converters have also been implemented for an improved signal-to-noise ratio on this version.

Why in the world does this device use mini USB instead of USB-C??? Can this be used as a recording interface? Seems like a step down from the F6...
Yes, the Zoom F8n Pro Multitrack Field Recorder can be used as a USB audio interface for recording. As for why Zoom had chosen mini-USB as the host connection instead of USB-C, it could be that mini-USB was the most common option when the F8n was released. You will need to contact Zoom for specific details regarding their choice of USB host connections.

3.5 mm mic input available?
3.5 mm mic input available?
The Zoom F8n Pro 8-Input / 10-Track Multitrack Field Recorder does not feature a 3.5mm input onboard. Presumably, 3.5mm microphones can be adapted for connection to the F8n's XLR inputs with a product such as BH #ROVXLRP Rode VXLR+ 3.5mm TRS Female to XLR Male Adapter with Phantom Power Converter: https://bhpho.to/37jdBi5

Will there be a way to reformat SD cards from the app while Bluetooth connection is active?
Zoom does not specify the ability to format the SD cards used within the Zoom F8n Pro 8-Input / 10-Track Multitrack Field Recorder via the Control App. The Control App does allow for other parameters for the SD card to be set, such as file type and input signals recorded to each card.
