I have a Sony XCD-X710 camera which should be capable of 10 bit greyscale.
I found that Imaging Control3.0 is capable of up to 16 bit, but I did not find out how to save images with more than 8 bit.

How can I save images/avis without dataloss meaning full 10 bit? (I'm using VB6)

Hi,

It is not intended to save images with 10/12 bit in AVI or image files. Therefore you would have to write your own image saving function for 16 bit gray scale images. At least I do not know an application that can read these formats.

there are plenty of grafik formats for 16 bit greyscale images:
png
bmp
tga
those can be read by various programs.
Is there any posibility of copying the 10 bit from the camera (YGB1) to an array to save it in for example a text file?

Yes, it is. You have direct access to the imagebuffer. Please refer to http://www.imagingcontrol.com/ic/docs/html/activex/ImageProcessing.htm for a simple sample of image processing in Visual Basic 6.
