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

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.
