"Working Color Profile in NX2"
Having come over to the Digital Side last year and am finally comfortable using my camera, I am wondering if it makes a difference which color profile to work in NX2 (Adobe RGB, Pro Photo RGB, Adobe sRGB......) Since my images are going out as sRGB to be printed, should I use it for my work profile? I shoot RAW, adjust contrast and color in NX2, then save to tiff for use with other filters in Photoshop. Final image goes out as a jpeg-8bit-sRGB.

I work in 14 bit NEF files and Adobe RGB in NX2. If I post to the web I will convert a copy of my final image to an 8 bit sRGB file for that purpose. The advantages you get are a wider gamut using Adobe RGB and greater color depth using 14 bit. Thsi way if you make big changes to your files, you have less chance of creating artifacts.
