I worked with OpenCV 3.2 with Python3 and SBC OXU4. I have a true 5MPx web-camera connected to SBC. I want to take from this camera 2592x1944 resolution picture. If I use Cheese I can take picture with this resolution. I can save pictures with command line program streamer -t 4 -r 4 -s 2592x1944 -o b0.jpeg But when I take picture with OpenCV3.2 like this:

#!/usr/bin/env python3
import cv2
import os
import time
capture1 = cv2.VideoCapture(2)
if capture1.isOpened():
   capture1.set(3, 2592)
   capture1.set(4, 1944)
   s, img = capture1.read()
   if not img.all():
      cv2.imwrite('test1.jpg', img)
      print('image done!')
else:
  print('cant open camera')

I will see 1920x1080 photo resolution. Also I have inspected v4l2-ctls

In fact I see that we have default settings as MJPG 1920X1080. After that I tried to use v4l2-ctl --set-fmt-video=width=2592,height=1936,pixelformat=YUYV and with v4l2-ctl --all I saw that params are sets to:

Driver name   : uvcvideo 
Card type     : oCam
Bus info      : usb-12110000 ...

Problem solved. I deleted precompiled opencv from apt-get, then rebuild it from source with -D WITH_V4L=ON
