Instead of taking one image this camera takes four: one centred, one shifted half a pixel right, one shifted half a pixel down, and one shifted half a pixel right and half a ...

Consider that the sensor is not a perfect capture device. Each pixel will be recorded with some amount of error. For example, if the most accurate value of a pixel is N, the sensor will record a value that is in a range N-E to N+E for a given E. For a good sensor E is small, a bad sensor will have a larger E. Also note that on each exposure a given pixel ...
The following is as I understand things. People should feel free to point out any misconceptions so that we are all edified, but hopefully will actually point out any they spot and not just mumble in their beer. (or beards or ...).
