    Ignore it -- DPI is useless an indicator of image quality.

    You can check the sensor resolution from the pixel count (e.g. 4000 x 3000 pixels), but that is just ONE of the many factors that affect technical image quality.

    72 PPI or 300 PPI has noting to do with camera sensor resolution, it only come in play when you do printing, You may need to do some reading on the PPI or DPI, please search online as this topic already covered extensively.

    you want to find out what is the sensor resolution of your DSLR, you can

    - read the spec of your camera from user manual or just simply search online

    - do a mouse right click (windows) on your large jpg taken by your DSLR, look at the property / details tab of the image, see what is written in the image resolution.
