Having problems with your Canon Digital Cameras ?

How do I change the dpi/ppi on the Canon 50D?


Answers :

There are only preset values available in your camera you cannot select custom values. For information about changing the pixel count please refer to page 60 of the manual below.

Hi,

The only thing \015\012that DPI will change is the resolution of a printed photo, not anything \015\012on your computer screen.
\015\012
\015\012To answer your question, NO, there isn't a setting on the camera that \015\012will change the DPI of your photos. However, your photo processing app \015\012(Photoshop, Lightroom, I believe DPP?) can change that. But changing the\015\012 DPI won't affect the number of pixels in your photo, nor arrange them \015\012in any specific way. It only affects how the printer deals with the \015\012information it receives, and/or the way your photo app determines the \015\012dimensions of the photo—i.e. the higher the DPI, the smaller the length \015\012and width of the photo.\015\012\011\011\011\011\011\011\011\011

Okay, looking at your post again, it looks like you're talking about a \015\012printed photo when you say they look pixellated.
\015\012
\015\012So yeah. If you're adjusting the dimensions of the photo in your \015\012processing app by using LxW modifications (i.e. you're changing the \015\012dimensions to 8"x10", not 2400px x 3000px), and it's set to 72dpi, you \015\012WILL get pixellated photos. 72dpi is designed for screen resolution \015\012(though in truth, most monitors are manufactured at a 96dpi pitch). But \015\012what I said before still holds true: your camera isn't what sets the \015\012resolution; the processing app does.

let me know, if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

I have a Canon EOS 50D Digital Camera and use 3 different Canon Lenses. I am getting "Error 30". I have taken the internal battery out and re-installed the firmware.
