You need to set the default resolution for the camera jpeg tag in the camera software...
If you can't do that, it might be useful to learn about the Script Events Manager. You could create a script that would automatically launch an action that changes the resolution to 240 ppi each time you open an image. (You'll just need to switch it off when you don't need it)
BTW, why are you so concerned about resolution?
That resolution number doesn't really mean anything as far as the quality of the picture is concerned. It is simply a reference number that can be used to tell you how big the picture would be at that resolution. It doesn't change the actual size of the image. Your camera takes a picture that is #### x #### pixels, and that doesn't change regardless of what resolution is reported.
My camera is like yours, JPEG images always open at 72 PPI, and my raw images from the beginning open in Camera Raw at 240 PPI. Of course, we know it's possible to set Camera Raw to any resolution that we want. But that does not change the actual size of the image.
But if you are bringing your photos into another application, such as InDesign, then the resolution does become important. And it becomes important if you print from Photoshop. It saves you a few steps if you can bring the photos in at the appropriate resolution.
