Re: sRGB vs Adobe RGB and getting 16.7 Million colors (or more)

The realistic matter is that it DOES matter.  You want the extra color for editing.

You want to shoot in Adobe RGB and edit in adobe RGB (or prophoto RGB) and output in srgb.

If you use Lightroom, you're already using Prophoto RGB.

sure, you may get all that great color on your monitor, but no customer will have such gear, it can't be printed either - so yoiu're working hard/spending money to get a color range that nobody can see or appreciate - a waste of time and money.

Dynamic range is almost the same but at least I see some beneftis to being able to capture more of it.

My opinions are my own and not those of DPR or its administration. They carry no 'special' value (except to me of course)
