    You should be able to make pictures in 2592x1944 pixels (5 megapixles) with the normal use of the camera.

    Have you checked the settings ?

    what do you mean by "HD"?. As far as i understand the X6 captures Video at VGA res (640x480) which is well short of the lowest HD res (1280x720), while it captures stills at 5MP (2592x1944) which is above even 1080p (1920x1080)

    If by HD you mean Widescreen, then i'm not sure if the X6 has a widescreen photo mode, but you can easily crop your pictures to a 16:9 aspect ratio in photoshop or paint.net

    yes , i tried that , and it doesn't give me the scale in pixels , instead it says "11x14 in (28x36cm)"

    but it's not in HD , the capture area is about 3/4 of the screen , the rest is the control buttons which have a black background behind them

    but this only happens in the still photo mode , in video mode it's in complete HD

    the reason why some of the area is obscured in image mode is because you're capturing in a 4:3 aspect ratio, while in video you're capturing in 16:9

    If you have the quality slider all the way up then you're capturing at 5mp, which is a 4:3 format... i don't think nokia phones have a 16:9 still capture mode.
