For that pixel format, YUV 4:2:2 10-bit, use v210 as the codec.

  ffmpeg -i input -codec:v v210 -pix_fmt yuv422p10le output.mov

However, at least on Windows, Quicktime Player doesn't seem to like
movies encoded by ffmpeg this way.  Not entirely sure why, everything
else seems to accept them just fine.
