No, this very technical description of the process says that binned pixels result in a lower signal-to-noise ratio. Because it's adding the three, noise gets averaged out is the short way to say it. But apparently something called dark channel noise remains . . . it's technical, they explain it inadequately.

So, mixed bag for pixel binning. Interesting.
