I am using the linked Vi to grab a 16 bit image from a camera link camera.
However, the output image is always 8-bit regardless of my settings and the MAX settings.
Max sees the image as 16 bits without problems.
I actually succeeded in recording 16-bit images with this setup before, using the previous version of the NI-IMAQ drivers, but other camera properties did not work.
Any Ideas on what I could be doing wrong?

To understand what could be wrong, could you please give us the NI-IMAQ driver version and the model of your camera and your framegrabber?

When you say that "I actually succeeded in recording 16-bit images with this setup before". that was with this camera?

Could you use a property node "Image parameters >> Image Type" on the IMAQ Session out to see what is the image type use by the frame grabber?

Ok so you could probably use the VI IMAQ Set Camera Attribute to define a U16 or a I16 for your camera, as you have it in MAX?
