sensor actually works: Actual per-pixel color values are derived by
interpolation of a 2x2 field.
If you reduce resolution, you can approximate to a per-pixel color
accuracy comparable to what a Foveon sensor can deliver. See the
following test for image quality comparison of both sensors:
The reality is somewhat more complex as the test may suggest, but it's a
good aid for pointing out the basic principle (of resolution reduction).
