When converting a whole image file from a 5d from raw to psd what is the dpi setting. I think 350 is some kind of default but I don't really know what is correct. Thanks.

It makes no difference what the dpi might show since it is essentially meaningless. The RAW converter can be set for your choice of DPI. Keep in mind that DPI is for using printing and has nothing to do with the image. We have had a number of long threads on this subject, so you might search for DPI and you'll find several of them.
Cheers,

Multiply your age by the number of megapixels and divide by the number of camera bodies you own.

I use 300, I think the default is actually 240, but it's pretty much irrelevant - the only thing it affects is the 100% size of the image when printing. If you use about 360dpi then the 100% size will be approximately A4. If you use "scale to fit page", then it's completely irrelevant.
