The IIDC 1394 standard defines the available modes. Each camera provides some subset of those standard settings.

However, the standard also provides Format 7 nodes, which allow the camera to provide additional resolutions.

EDIT:

Because Format 7 behavior is not specified by the standard, individual devices vary widely. Most cameras I have tested display full device resolution, generally when using Format 7 Mode 0.

The driver provides special parameters only used in Format 7 modes. You can experiment with them, but the default values normally provide the behavior you want.

To experiment with those parameters while the driver is running, use the reconfigure GUI. Unfortunately, many cameras behave badly in Format 7 mode when given unexpected parameter values. If the device hangs while you are experimenting with those parameters, you may need to perform various resets to get it working again.

If that does not work, run coriander on the device. See what parameters it supports. Then set the equivalent values in camera1394.
