My comment about ZIPing the RAW files was purely a matter of curiousity - not sure that it would be worthwhile. With a photo that was purely single valued , there would be a regular patern of byte values. Would ZIP pick up the compression possibility in a patern of similar valued bytes in regions like a flat sky? As NHL pointed out, the patern would not be simple, but there would be a patern Likely he is right about not getting much compression from ZIP, but I am a strong believer in experimenting.
