My camera, Minolta 7D, like most records the image @ 72 dpi. Is there a way to capture and image in the camera at a higher dpi?
Thanks,

um
what do you use to print your images? all cameras do this, what determines the "standard" size is when you change the "dpi" settings say 300 "dpi" when I do this on one of my raw files it makes the print size about 8 x 12 if you want to go bigger I have read (cause I haven't done it myself) that you do it in 10% increments as to not loose allot of quality.

The DPI is basically meaningless when talking about the photos captured by a digital camera. You can assign any DPI you want in post processing. We have gone over this a number of times on numerous threads in the past. If you need an image to be at a particular DPI for printing purposes, then you simply resize it and choose the DPI you want. This will naturally effect the printable size. But cameras and monitors don't use DPI, they use pixels.
Cheers,
rfs

Thanks RFS and Cuervo. I was thinking that if you increase the dpi in post it would affect the image.
Thanks again for replying. This is a great site and you guys take awesome images.
