Hi

im in a bit of a pickle :S this is probably a lot easier than i imagine. i am a undergrad working on robotics and the robot im working on takes pictures in RGB565 which is 16 bit. but i dont know how that works :/

i understrand 24 bit where red green and blue have a byte each but you cant divide 16 into 3 equal part... so i read more and found that the color is in format RRRRRGGGGGGBBBBB (which is 16 bits) but its odd that green has a bigger range than the other two.

can someone tell me how to read color from this?

any help would be great. thanks in advanced :D
