Pentax K1 SuperRes pixel shift mode records 4 pixel-shifted exposures into one raw file. The raw converter must then take those 4 exposures and (somehow) create an RGB pixel for each pixel in the image.
Camera movement is not tolerated, but if there is subject motion, the Motion Correction feature found in Pentax Digital Camera Utility can correct areas affected by motion.
Here are compared the results of a single SuperRes pixel shift image using an image of a mechanical watch in which the seconds hand is moving. With a 2-second exposure (2 sec X 4 for SuperRes), motion will definitely be an issue in SuperRes mode; the seconds hand will be in ~8 different positions over the duration of the 4-frame SuperRes exposure.

Diglloyd DAP is DSLR-oriented, but also contains workflow and other topics. Much of the focus is on Canon and Nikon but also Pentax and Pentax medium format.
Special emphasis is placed on lens evaluation, focusing on Canon and Nikon and Sigma lenses, but with a few others like Rokinon/Samyang.
- Make better images by learning how to get the best results right away.
- Save money by choosing the right lens for your needs the first time, particularly some of the new Sigma Art lenses vs Nikon and Canon.
- Workflow discusses image organization, raw conversion and post processing. Many examples show processing parameters for direct insight into how the image was converted.
- Jaw-dropping image quality found nowhere else utilizing Retina-grade images up to full camera resolution, plus large crops [past 2 years or so].
- Real world examples with insights found nowhere else. Make sharper images just by understanding lens behavior you won’t read about elsewhere.
- Aperture series from wide open through stopped down, showing the full range of lens performance and bokeh.
- Optical quality analysis of field curvature, focus shift, sharpness, flare, distortion, and performance in the field.
