This is how I got my head around how they are packed:
bytes is left to right, pixels is down, numbers are bits in the pixel value
Code: [Select]
0      |1      |2      |3      |4      |5      |6      |7      |8      |9      |
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
0   10      98765432                                                                
1     987654                3210                                                  
2   543210      9876                                              
3    98                76543210                                
4   98765432                10                      
5   3210      987654                
6   9876                543210  
7   76543210      98

If you reverse the bytes, it makes more sense ;) EDIT: I.e. this is how it would be arranged in memory if it was big endian, which it isn't!
Code: [Select]
0      |1      |2      |3      |4      |5      |6      |7      |8      |9      |

1             9876543210                                                            
2      9876543210                                                  
3            9876543210                                        
4          9876543210                              
5    9876543210                    
6           9876543210          
7        9876543210

Edit:
Newer cameras are 12 bpp
Code: [Select]
0      |1      |2      |3      |4      |5      |

0   3210    BA987654                                
1       BA98                76543210                
2   BA987654                3210    
3                  76543210    BA98

Don't forget what the H stands for.

So, is it 5B/4p or 10B/8p? Is this pattern correct?

As above, on ten bit cameras it's 10 bytes / 8 pixels. On 12 bit cameras, it's 6 bytes / 4 pixels.

This doesn't look right, see first diagram (past into something with a fixed font if it isn't showing up that way here). Or step through the read_pixel code.

I worked this out some time ago but cannot guarantee it is correct :-
