[Mark Raudonis] "We used 4k (Sony f 55) to shoot interviews this season for one of our reality shows. The creative called for TWO people on camera and we were able to use the extra pixels for "Punch ins" on closeups of either cast member. One frame equals THREE angles: WS, CU left cast, CU right Cast. Worked great and was actually a cost SAVER for us. One camera rental not three. One file not Three. I could go on, but the point is, 4K acquisition is a smart tool in the right circumstances."

4k acquisition is a great tool for oversampling HD, and this is how we use it, currently.

Here's F55 footage used for three crops in one interview. The shot is framed at the second shot of the three.

Oversampling is also used in real time, AJA's Corevid Ultra uses 4k images for realtime HD zooms:
