You'll need to shoot RAW. Then in the conversion from RAW to TIFF or JPEG you can specify the DPI. You can do this in Photoshop or in Digital Photo Professional that probably came with your camera.

DPI and Pixel Resolutions are in two different realms, though somewhat related, they are independant. Your camera produces files at the maximum resolution of 4272 x 2848. At 72 dpi, your print will roughly be 60"x40". At 300 dpi, 14.25"x9.493". At 600dpi, 7.12"x4.747", at 1200dpi 3.56"x2.373". Think of cameras in terms of pixel resolution and printers in terms of dpi. When files are inserted into layouts, the embedded dpi value is used. You just need to change the embedded value to match up with the print size you desire. Obviously, if you want a 120"x80" print at 300dpi... you've got the wrong camera. :) Source(s): This is a good site for those interested in more technical details:

On the menu, in the first option look for quality and it should saw, raw, or jpeg. On the front dial near the shutter turn the dial until it says raw. You can actually shoot both raw and jpeg with the camera simultaneously. Just click raw and use conversion software so you can have a decent image. I hoope this helps. It took me a while to figure it out too!

Where on my menu do I change the dpi settings on my Canon EOS50D?


You don't.
DPI (dots per inch) is an output specification used when printing a photo, not when taking one.
Any photo editing program will let you change it, but why bother? Instead, simply specify the size of the print you want and the program will compute the required DPI.

I keep getting err 30 on my cannon 50d. I think I need a new shutter. How long would it take to replace it? I am going out of town Friday.


Hi, Unfortunately having a shutter replaced, when sending the camera off to Canon takes 8-12 weeks in my experience.

Does the Eos 50d support wireless multi-flash


I have a Metz and a 50d and it does support E-ttl. The Metz is a bit less and it is more versatile than the Cannon and it does support slaves as well. I hope this helps you a bit. I got my Metz from Calumet Photographic. I am sure if you call them, they can tell you the answer.
