My Pentax K-3 II cameras have pixel shift capability. Basically it records 4 separate images, each after shifting the sensor one pixel in a circular pattern and saves them all in one file, hence the massive 150Mb'ish file size. It's then the job of the RAW developer to combine those 4 images into one demosaic'd file.
So how does On1 PhotoRAW deal with any motion that might occur between each of the 4 images being recorded, as might be the case in a landscape scene (plants, animals, people etc.)?
Other camera marques besides Pentax use pixel shift technology so hopefully On1's engine has some intelligence to detect and correct motion between the frames.
I can find no mention of pixel shift in the user guide.
