"Adobe or sRGB"


Bogor, ID
          

I have aD600 and I use Aperture and Nik plug-ins for PP. I shoot a mixture of RAW and JPEG, though most of what I print is shot in RAW.

I have always used sRGB in camera, but on setting up my new D600 I am questioning this.

My understanding is that sRGB is fine for web use, but Adobe may be better if the photograph is to be printed. However it would seem that Apple does its own thing with RAW files anyhow, so maybe the choice of color space is not all that important for ,y purposes. And as they say, if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Am I missing anything?

Thanks!

Why waste space and processing time using jpegs (it slows your computer and camera down) with your camera and possibly other devices when you only print from raw?? Stick with just raw,you can't do any serious or extensive processing with jpegs anyway.

The latest and best photo format(RGB PRO PHOTO) is better than Adobe RGB and especially SRGB because RGB PRO PHOTO contains more information and has a significantly wider color gamut(more colors) than the other two which would give you better quality and after all,quality should be what it's all about when you print photos. Who wants a crappy picture on their wall?

The color profile does not apply to images shot in RAW format so you needn't worry about it. If you are shooting anything you want to consider keepers in JPEG your best bet would be AdobeRGB as it is a larger color space and can readily be converted to sRGB when the need arises – preferably after post processing to minimize image degradation.

So with RAW the in camera choice doesn't matter, but when the time comes use RGB Pro Photo for output. Great.. That is what I am now doing, and what LR4 was kind enough to point me toward.

All very simple, thanks

Precisely. The beauty of RAW is it allows you to make your image processing decisions after you have seen the captured image rather than committing to those decisions before capture and having them "baked in" with no after-the-fact recourse.

Just make sure you're using 16 bit images if you're working in ProPhoto RGB. Otherwise you're negating the larger colorspace benefits.
