Yes, you can, I've done it.

I wrote two articles about it for the late, great showreel magazine, which you can read free here:

You can also attempt to utilize the Nanoflash from Convergent Designs. Records out of HDSDI to 422 and compact flash cards, which are much cheaper than SxS (which hits you with the inherent EX3 compression).

If you are on a stage shoot you should be fine linking directly to a capture card, but if you need to be more mobile, look it up.

The AJA Ki-Pro is another option with great results, and it's in between the malleability of the Nanoflash and the lock-down of a capture card in terms of size.
