I purchased the D610 and previously had the D7000 and I cannot remember which setting I had the 7000 set up with for the Color Space menu item:
SRGB or Adobe RGB.
I use Mac Aperture and Photo Elements 12.
I rarely print prints anymore, but I do have a color print Photo copier ( HP All in One).

Preferences anyone?

If shooting JPGE for the web, or computer viewing only and no adjustments are to be made, use sRGB.

If shooting RAW, the camera setting only matters if you are using Nikon software. Set the color space in the software. I tend to believe the pundits who say use ProPhoto then convert to the appropriate color space during output. It would be sRGB for the web and some printing services. AdobeRGB for some printers.

There is a fair amount of controversy over this issue. Some are adamant that you should edit in the color space of the output. Others just as firm that you should edit in a larger space and convert for output.
