joe6pack: "the only way to open our Nikon D700 .NEF-file in Photoshop Express is to import it from Adobe's Revel cloud service. We also saved the file on our device's internal storage, but there it could not be recognized by the app"

This is a no go. Who can afford to upload a RAW file to the cloud on the go only for it to be converted and downloaded back?

Image size is the original in PSexpress. Furthermore exporting to a folder does copy the raw file to that folder. Exporting to apps not supporting raw does not work. So I understand it exports the raw file as is , no conversion.

Update: free Rawpal gallery app allows to view RAW files and to open them with PSexpress (export option)

No Revel needed. I copied a NEX raw ARW file onto my nexus5 and opened it with FX Explorer as an image selecting PSxprss as tha app to use. Works fine.
Of course if a gallery app such as QuickPic supported raw files it would be easier.

FFS. When are camera manufacturers going to start quoting sensor sizes in millimetres? This 1/x.x business is needlessly confusing. OK, so maybe that's the point - big numbers sound more impressive to the inexperienced, even if they have a 1 over them - but still, millimetres (or even millimeters) would make imaging chips a lot easier to compare. It would make it easier to estimate the 35mm equivalent focal length of the lenses, too.

C'mon DPReview - how about you start doing it unilaterally? You're influential enough that maybe you could change industry policy.

I can see this technique would increase color resolution, since due to movement you could have different color pixels overlap, thus compensating for bayer demosaicing losses.
I am also wondering if Fuji will make a phone sensor with small and large pixels, let's say 8M+8M, thus increasing low light performance and DR without multiple frames. Small pixels could also be used to increase resolution with multiple frame techniques too. Any opinions on this?
