Hi guys,

I have just purchased a 1TB Time Capsule and plan to set-up to following backup strategy, but I have some questions:

I want to backup my MBP using both TM and SD to the Time Capsule. I plan to make weekly image backups with SD and hourly backups with TM.

If there is a problem, can I simply reformat my HD, transfer the disk image generated by SD from the Time Capsule to the fresh HD and then use Time Machine to update to to the most recent backup? Is this possible?

It should be possible, but of course trying to "update to the most recent backup" with Time Machine isn't as easy as it sounds. It doesn't "smart update" when restoring, so if you try to do the whole thing it'll copy everything. Trying to find all the files it's backed up could be a challenge, too...
