I got my HD camera before I could edit or view HD but all the other HD parts came later.
Because I could still shoot in HD and output in SD without any extra workflows.
I would guess that one day HD would become the norm so it’s safe to say you’re not buying into a fad or bad technology.
There is more to it than the camera itself as Spencer has said but it sounds like you at least have the editor if not more to handle HDV.
Burners and players are the biggest "issues" [to me anyway] right now as they are still a little pricey.
Make the move because at least you’ll be able to offer both HD and/or SD from one system [camera, computer, editor….]
Once you see your own work in HD on a big HDTV, you’ll feel like you can do anything.
