If you can afford an EX1R then that looks a strong option.

I don't know of any professsional doc crew trying to shoot on DSLR. Ever. I'd be interested if anyone can point to any doc (rather than art film, or effects sequence) made this way. No doubt there may be one or two out there.

Look again at your cost savings and I think you will find these are illusory. There are lower-cost camcorder options. Camcorders by people like Canon and Sony are designed primarily to shoot video, with an edit workflow in mind.

For your end product after editing, your quality gains from DSLR may be strictly limited (very highly compressed footage from DSLRs, as from some camcorders, unless you burn up your sdhc cards with image sequences) and the low-light performance may also not be significantly better.

Good luck with the project.
