First of all were happy to see another shooter joining the ranks. Be careful though because it gets very addicting.
To answer your question, you have plenty of camera there. It has all of the necessary features to do what you want to do. You have to realize that just about all of us started out like you are. BTW: You are doing it right! Just start out with the bare necessities to cut your teeth on and if you like it, you can start climbing the ladder towards the bigger and better toys. Pinnacle will work fine too. You just have to make sure you have a decent PC with firewire (aka: IEEE1394 or iLink) ports and the necessary minimum requirements to run the software.
