2.9.6. V4L2_PIX_FMT_SBGGR16 (‘BYR2’)

man V4L2_PIX_FMT_SBGGR16(2)

Bayer RGB format Description

This format is similar to V4L2_PIX_FMT_SBGGR8, except each pixel has a depth of 16 bits. The least significant byte is stored at lower memory addresses (little-endian).

..note:: The actual sampling precision may be lower than 16 bits,
for example 10 bits per pixel with values in tange 0 to 1023.

Byte Order. Each cell is one byte.
