three color channels saturate at the same level. For the jpeg generated
in the camera clipping for all channels simply is lowered to the lowest
clipping level of the respective channel (may be sometimes lower,
especially if high contrast picture style is selected).
Highlight recovery tries to reconstruct the information of a clipped
channel from the other channels. See f.e.
But it must fail if all three channels are clipped.
However, there surely are differences between cameras in how much
highlights are clipped in jpeg output relative to RAW output. The Fuji
S5 is said to clip jpeg 2 f-stops below the real limit.
