Default 16:9 recording question

Ok, from what I've read there are several ways that video cameras accomplish 16:9 widescreen. Some letterbox the image during recording, some digitally compress then stretch, some do it natively.

So, what's the difference between methods? My camera (Optura 20) says it does this digitally, which I take to mean it compresses/ decompresses. What method gives you the best picture for widescreen. It seems like letterboxing etc. actually cuts down the data and thus the image quality, is that true?

Any help/explaination would be appreciated.
