Problem reading 16-bit TIFF File

Trying to read a 16-bit grayscale TIFF image saved with OpenCV in Python, and I’m getting the error:

ERROR: In C:\glr\builds\paraview\paraview-ci\build\superbuild\paraview\src\VTK\IO\Image\vtkTIFFReader.cxx, line 1136
vtkTIFFReader (0000027E675D81C0): Problem reading slice of volume in TIFF file.

The same error message appears in this thread from the old mailing list. Image properties from metadata:

Exif.Image.BitsPerSample       = 16 16 16
Exif.Image.Compression         = LZW
Exif.Image.ImageLength         = 120
Exif.Image.ImageWidth          = 160
Exif.Image.Orientation         = top, left
Exif.Image.PhotometricInterpretation = Black Is Zero
Exif.Image.PlanarConfiguration = 1
Exif.Image.Predictor           = Horizontal differencing
Exif.Image.ResolutionUnit      = inch
Exif.Image.RowsPerStrip        = 25
Exif.Image.SamplesPerPixel     = 1
Exif.Image.StripByteCounts     = 4189 4188 4338 4119 3429
Exif.Image.StripOffsets        = 8 4197 8385 12723 16842
Exif.Image.XResolutoin         = 300
Exif.Image.YResolution         = 300
Exif.Photo.ColorSpace          = sRGB

Because the extension is .tif, I get the option of two readers, either GDAL Raster Reader (works for a single image but not a sequence) or TIFF Series Reader (gives error above, whether the image is alone or is actually part of a series titled seq_0000xx.tif for xx=0 to 40. Read As Image Stack is unchecked, representation can be surface or slice, coloring is set to Tiff scalars. Everything else is default.

These are plain 16-bit grayscale TIFF files, no pages or anything in them. Information tab shows data is read as unsigned short.

Here are sample images:
seq_0000000.tif (20.0 KB)
seq_0000001.tif (20.0 KB)
seq_0000002.tif (20.1 KB)
seq_0000003.tif (20.0 KB)

The data originates from a thermal camera which gives raw 12-bit data, so changing the format isn’t too much of an issue but this should work.
