That seems like a very strange combination. If I remember correctly, packbits is a byte-based RLE scheme. Applied to floating point data, compression ought to be very inefficient.

It may be a sensible option if the image has significant regions of solid black. The IEEE floating-point representation of 0.0 is: 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00 (in either endian).
