On my nice new and first DSLR is a feature which allows me the options of RGB1= portrait colours, RGB 3 =landscape colours and Adobe 2 = extensively processed or retouched. I have photoshop elements and do manipulate some but not all of my photo's ,also I print off some of my output on an inkjet printer. My question is, has anyonegot + /-experiences of these modes and what is the camera best left on?.:?

I know I can experiment and play but I would appreciate some advice /comments from you guys out there with more knowledge and experience than myself.

Thanks.

I use the Adobe colour space.

There's a lot of information on colour spaces here http://www.steves-digicams.com/techc...ober_2006.html

Unless you're willing to properly calibrate your monitor and printer I'd stay with sRGB. The colors using the Adobe RBG color space are noticeably duller as well. Here is a great article on this very topic...

I have my DSLR set to sRGB. Hope this helps.

Thanks for your replies, the two sites suggested were very interesting as regardsAdobe . Ken Rockwell seems in no doubt what so ever. Of course the question remaining is "is it worth swapping between 1 and 3 depending whether you are taking portraits or landscapes ". Unless anyone has a definitive answer I feel some experimenting coming on.

Anyway thanks for your help.
