I have the following code

and

http://pastebin.com/W9hqfF39

both are getting an image from a thermal imaging camera; one is saving the image using ofstream and the other with opencv. The opencv image is a lot darker, almost black. Any idea what I'm doing wrong?

Thanks

Your image is 16 bits (cv::Mat img(h,w,CV_16UC1);).

Not sure that pgm image file accepts 16 bits image format. You could try to save to another format that accepts 16 bits depth or in binary format maybe ?
