Hi guys / ladies , :unsure: please forgive me this question but ive noticed in my manual for the D5000 it mentions the two colors RGB and Adobe RGB my question is this , Which is the best setting between the two and why, and the moment i use the default RGB and have no idea why there are choices for this , i would be grateful if a member could give me the advice and the best settings if it will give better colors in my shots .
All the very best .
Paul

Thanks guys ...or sorry and gals

Adobe RGB is one of RGB, there are others, like Apple RGB, ISO RGB.... not much difference.
Camera usually has two color spaces setting: Adobe RGB or sRGB. sRGB is for computer screen display and has smaller color space than Adobe RGB.
I always set my camera to Adobe RGB and shoot RAW. When I need to post photo to internet I will convert it from RAW to JEPG with sRGB. When I need to print it out I convert it to tiff or JPG with CMYK.

I guess your question is RGB or sRGB. the quick answer is if you shoot RAW, use RGB, if JEPG use sRGB.
