Why are all my pictures only 72dpi?
Can I change that to a higher dpi and how?
Thanks for any help. PhotoAttributes.JPG

Your pictures aren't only at 72dpi.
The pixel density (dpi) is irrelevant and means nothing.
Your images can be expressed at any pixel density you choose.

It's the resolution (how many pixels) that matters.

What's a more relevant question is: Why are you shooting at such a small resolution (2688 x 1530) ?
If you have a P4 it can shoot at 4000 x 3000 or the P4 pro can shoot 5472 × 3648.

dpi is only relevant for the printing business.
Focus on resolution.
dpi can be changed in post

That's a very good question.
I set the image ratio to 16:9
ISO = 100
Shutter = 1/30
F = 3.2
EV = -1
TrueColor
WB= Sunny
and this is the best I could get.


The photo seems blurry and pixelated to me.
How can I improve this?
Maybe I'm expecting too much from a 20mp camera

If you set the aspect ration to 3:2, you will get even greater resolution. But if those pictures look pixelated to you, I would quetion the device you are viewing them on.

Thanks Geebax
I tried that and the resolution is a bit better at 3:2
I guess I was expecting sharper pictures.
But if you say this is good then........ it is what it is.....
Thanks again

Resolution is just a measure of how many pixels in your photo.
It has nothing to do with blurriness or sharpness.
The reason you are complaining about blurriness in that indoor test shot is because the bottom of the image (the table surface) is extremely close to the lens while the back of the room is much further away.
The lens was probably focused on the centre of the image which looks to be 20 feet or so away.
If you tried to duplicate that shot with the best SLR camera and the same settings you would still find the table surface was out of focus.

The lens and sensor on your camera are very good and this photo is not a good test to show that.
In aerial photography, you are unlikely to have some elements of the image only 1-2 feet away and others off in the distance.
Next time try a test shot where everything in the frame is 10 feet or more away from the lens and you should be happier with the results.
