Morning guys, just exploring things, when you are setting up things in camera are you using sRGB or Adobe RGB?

The question is irrelevant if you shoot RAW — this
format has no colour space. Shooting jpg for web
or print, the 1998 colour space is appropriate.

Light is free… capturing it is not!

I start off with Adobe RGB set in the camera.
When posting online to social sites i convert to Srgb while in Photoshop cc.
If printing i stay in Adobe RGB to take advantage of the larger / stretched colour spectrum.

Use the widest color gamut possible, in all settings, until you export images for display. It just makes things easier.

That said, for RAW, the only effect the setting has is on the embedded JPG preview.

If you're shooting JPG, then sRGB.

I always wondered about this subject. Thank you for your answer G Vernon . (I feel you have some of the best explanation)  I usually use PS, I edit my photos and I export in sRGB 100% of the time.

Only valid if not shooting RAW. The default colour space will
be applied — or options suggested — when opening in editor.
