Re: Age old digital camera question: SRGB or Adobe RGB

So many different ways to answer this question.

But if you are asking about the camera setting - that would only affect the output jpg files.

If you shoot RAW - that camera setting has no effect.

If you edit your images - your editor has an editing setting and an output setting that will affect the final output file that needs to be set - this is not controlled by your camera.

As others have said - web output - sRGB output is the standard.

For print - ask your printer.

Of course, output setting is different than capture settings and the editing setting - so just shoot in RAW, edit in the biggest space that your editor allows and and worry about output setting based on the final output use.

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?
