Does anyone here know more about how this type of technology works? Do you need to take multiple shots, or does the camera handle all of the shifting and compilation of data in one shutter activation? Would shutter speed be restricted to 1/200 or so to allow enough light to reach the sensor for each of the shifted positions? What are the implications for flash? If this tech works 'invisibly', it could be a wonderful game-changer. Thanks.

If it's anything like Hasselblad's system, then it will be automated but still require multiple full exposures, much like automated panoramas. The lighting method is fairly limited as a result.
It's cool that Oly engineers are finding new uses for IBIS.

It will be interesting to see how much they extend other complementary components like the shutter (electronic?) and the truepic processing pipeline. That will determine where this "hi Rez mode" can be used.

Exactly, and Hasselblad's solution also does not work if anything in the frame moves between shots.
