Hi Nick,

Of course the resolution in terms of pixels from the camera is fixed at its maximum value of 5184x3456 with Large JPEG. The "dpi" figure is something added by your image processing software and is easily changed in that software. For example, in Canon's DPP just select "Preferences.." from the "Tools" menu and you can change the default output resolution from 72 to 300 dpi.
