If it's the same a PS then it's in the image menu under mode.

I'm not sure if it will give any benefit converting from 8 bit to 16 bit.

The benefit is when the camera outputs 16 or 12 bit images you can process them without reducing the colour depth.

When you've got an 8 bit image and you convert it to 16 bits you haven't got any more colour information than you had before.
