Usually print my photo with 4R printout. According to theory, 2.1MP setting should be enough. So enough if we have a 5 Megapixel camera, should we set it to 2.1MP or 5MP?

Always set to the highest setting as there is no knowing when you might want to print larger.

Also remember you will need to crop the camera image in most cases since the camera will in general be capturing shots in a different aspect ratio to the paper so some of the image will need to be cropped to fit the paperlosing you more pixels.

And memory is cheap so use the highest setting you have.
