LZW or ZIP in most cases, for 8 bit and greater depths. Most of the file size trouble is for 16 bit per channel, 32 bit, etc.

A bit of a hi-jack, but it's a valid question. All these people who want to use BigTIFF, what sort of compression are they planning on using? Any? None? Is their image data 1 bit (Huffman, G3, G4, LZW, JBIG or...) or 8 bit (LZW, Flate or...)?

Just curious.
