Hi, I know this is a bit old, but I found this answer when trying to use 16-bit images with OpenCV's CLAHE and wanted to answer for others looking for this. I actually modified the algorithm to accept any integral type.

EDIT: Mainline OpenCV's CLAHE now supports 16-bit images.

@StevenPuttermans - That was me :) I am still in the process of fixing some bugs with it. But hopefully within the next week or so I'll be done.

Mainline OpenCV supports 16-bit images as of today.

Current implementation supports only 8-bit grayscale images. Code modification is required for 16 bit input.
