V4L2_PIX_FMT_SBGGR10DPCM8, V4L2_PIX_FMT_SGBRG10DPCM8, V4L2_PIX_FMT_SGRBG10DPCM8, V4L2_PIX_FMT_SRGGB10DPCM8 — 10-bit Bayer formats compressed to 8 bits


These four pixel formats are raw sRGB / Bayer formats with 10 bits per colour compressed to 8 bits each, using DPCM compression. DPCM, differential pulse-code modulation, is lossy. Each colour component consumes 8 bits of memory. In other respects this format is similar to V4L2_PIX_FMT_SRGGB10 ('RG10'), V4L2_PIX_FMT_SGRBG10 ('BA10'), V4L2_PIX_FMT_SGBRG10 ('GB10'), V4L2_PIX_FMT_SBGGR10 ('BG10'), (2).
