There is an interesting post by mclark over on dpreview dealing with the SNR approach and 'lucky imaging'. His wobbling video examples are very interesting, and the high resolution results impressive.

In my view "lucky imaging" is just as worthy (if not more) an approach as Adaptive Optics, and much cheaper. Why try to move surfaces to stablise an image when you can just align selected high rate exposures to produce a sharp stable result. As mclark at dpreview noted, dithering is a problem in high rate exposures due to the time taken to settle and you certainly could not do it on very short subs. This means to me that the use of flawed sensors that rely on dithering to process out the flaws probably is going to disappear as short sub video capture evolves around the new sensor generation.
