I see what I hear - JPEG = Mp3 : raw = at the worst "flac"

Digital compression is lossy in way shape or form. JPEGS are lossy


As long as you shoot Fine JPEG, post processing is like remixing an MP3 encoded with LAME at 320CBR. Yes, technically you started with a lossy format, but it was still a high fidelity sample.

Let's not take this analogy too far though because it will eventually fall flat. If there was greater scope with FLAC (or any other form of lossless compression of course) for eradicating hisses and pops or correcting waveform distortions (clipping specifically)

flac does not eradicate, it is a lossless format (that is why Neil Young and I like it) - MP3 does what

raw does not eradicate - jpeg does what

, especially if the practical benefit of this greater scope (or even the existence of it) was hotly debated, then it would work better.
