I find the combination CF/SD a bit odd, too, but at least there are some affordable CF cards on the market.
The same can't be said for XQD cards... and the D500 will most likely not change that.
Affordable maybe, but SD cards usually are cheaper (in the same performance class), easier to transport and there are much more readers around for them. I don't see the advantage of using different type of cards. That goes as well for the XQD. If two, than two identical.
If I were interviewing a politician the last thing I would care is that he/she looks great in 4K.
But seriously though, I dabbled a bit in shooting video a couple of years back and found that on average "a take" was no more than 5 or 6 seconds. I studied a lot films and found that 4 seconds seems to be the norm.
I don't think anyone in their right mind is going to use a DSLR to record an interview. You could probably get a 4k video recorder for 500â‚¬ that fits in your coat pocket.
As a side note, I have a 130cm TV and find that HD broadcast (1900-ish pixels) looks great already. Not only that, there is no 4K broadcast where I live, so I really think that 4K today is not a big deal.
