V4L2_PIX_FMT_SRGGB10P, V4L2_PIX_FMT_SGRBG10P, V4L2_PIX_FMT_SGBRG10P, V4L2_PIX_FMT_SBGGR10P — 10-bit packed Bayer formats


These four pixel formats are packed raw sRGB / Bayer formats with 10 bits per colour. Every four consecutive colour components are packed into 5 bytes. Each of the first 4 bytes contain the 8 high order bits of the pixels, and the fifth byte contains the two least significants bits of each pixel, in the same order.

Each n-pixel row contains n/2 green samples and n/2 blue or red samples, with alternating green-red and green-blue rows. They are conventionally described as GRGR... BGBG..., RGRG... GBGB..., etc. Below is an example of one of these formats:
