ArcPad Camera, ArcPad10, Yuma: How to get photos bigger than 640x480?

ArcPad 10.0 Build 55, Yuma (Rear Camera), Camera Switching Utility v1.1

Settings: Set picture quality to maximum

Advance Settings: ArcPad Camera: Options
Shows camera as "USB Video Device" no option to choose other
Size set at 1600x1200

Open the ArcPad Camera to take a photo.  Top of screen shows 640x480 size, even though prefs still say 1600x1200.
Photos taken are confirmed as 640x480 (eww--too small).

My guess is this is something between the Camera Switching Utility and ArcPad 10.0??

Confirmed it's not a hardware issue -- the camera shoots in bigger sizes from other applications.

Did you ever find a solution to this?

Just wanted to chime in and say that still is not resolved. Brand new Yuma 2 (Win7) with ArcPad 10.2 R2 (Build 50) can only take pictures from inside ArcPad at 640x480. Camera works fine up to the advertised 5MP outside of ArcPad though. I opened a case, and Esri support was able to repeat the behavior. It has as since been attached to this bug (NIM089150) and closed out. I'm seeing that this bug is now 2.5 years old with a severity of High. Crossing my fingers, but won't hold my breath.
