Many use a small amount of - EV with JPG's to avoid some blown highlights.

Just a note that with RAW I would suggest using 0 EV or experimenting with ETTR technique.

From Silkypix manual... "Even in case of taking a photograph in RAW format, the most idealistic way is to take a picture at the maximum exposure level that image sensor linearity can be secured. Because a noise increases and a picture becomes rough when a photograph is taken in underexposure."

With my FZ200, I think the cameras can record not only the region represented as white when the exposure bias amount is 0, but also a brighter region in RAW data.

If there are blown highlights at say 0 EV, detail can be recovered within these areas up to around - 1.3 EV or put another way the camera has recorded the RAW data with an allowance of 1.3 EV or put nother way, the upper 1.3 level of sensor's dynamic range has not been used.

Would I be right?

For what its worth, a simple example video illustrating pulling back EV, HDR & Black level controls in SilkyPix [5] - Ideally you nned the 720 resolution and zoom your browser - keep an eye on the Histogram ....

Troll Note: Just an illustration that some might find interesting - ACR will do the same probably easier with localised brushes but NR is a different matter...
