The best use for your current camera is to learn the skills needed for making watchable video. Learn what the limitations of your camera are and how to surmount them to the best of your ability. Learn how and practice shooting video sequences which can be edited successfully. Learn how to get interesting camera angles with handheld, tripod and steadycam style shooting. Learn how to take advantage of existing light and set/studio lighting. Those things and many more are the things you can be working on with your existing gear.
You absolutely do not need an HD camera to learn how to shoot. By the time your wallet will allow you to upgrade your gear, you’ll have the basics down which will be good because you’ll have a whole new set of things to learn after moving to HD. So the main thing you should be doing now with your gear is shoot, shoot and shoot some more.
