I've never tried it, but I've thought about this in the past. An
important thing to consider is the shutter life of the camera. A
decent dSLR gets about 100,000 clicks before it dies. A lot of still
images for sure, but that works out (unless my math is terribly wrong)
to just under 70 minutes of 24 fps footage. Although with the right
camera prices, the cost-benefit analysis may work out in favor of
using the SLR instead of a high-end transfer house.
