Re: X100 sRGB or Adobe RGB

For web posting you need to have images converted to sRGB. For other work it is best to have RGB as that includes a greater color gamut which may or may not be visible on your monitor. I can't see beyong sRGB on my MacBook Pro but I can on my NEC monitor and the difference, on some images can be significant and reduces posterization on some extreme captures with the sun.

Right now I am in mostly testing mode with my XE1 so I decided am shooting jpegs in sRGB mode and also shooting by bracketing film simulations. Provia has the best dynamic range so best used for extreme cases. If I am shooting something I think will be significant I would shoot in RGB and RAW + jpeg.
