Default How to disable DRO in Canon.

I am using a Canon Rebel XSi and for certain pictures I need to disable DRO (Dynamic Range Optimizer). Could someone please show me how to do it ? Thanks...

In the manual for the XSi, on page 156, there's are two setting in the Custom Function Settings. One is called Highlight Tone Priority and the other is Auto Lighting Optimizer. One or both of these may solve your problem.

Since I've begun to use autoHDR (thanks martin sykes) i have turned off DR (altho I have a sony, i believe this is the same thing as for canon). My feeling is that autoHDR can bring out shadow detail far better than in-camera processing. What about that? Am I right?
