i have done that several times a longer time ago, but you never know
when the shutter rips off, so if you calculate yourself after 20000
clicks about the possibility the in the middle of the project it kills
itself you can do that very easily. you have to have a replace-camera in
your repertoire and looking forward for replacement costs of 100-200
bucks each time ... and a lot of nerves ;) but then it works. of course
a 5d will stay longer as a 500d, but i would rather use the cheap one
for that job ... nowadays i only use that for making telecine of
finished works and not for production process anymore...
