Simple Answers to Difficult Questions

The idea behind this series is that there is a host of very complex information about digital photography, colormanagement and photo editing on the internet. The information is often confusing and sometimes just plain wrong. In my answers I intend to offer the minimum that is needed to more or less understand the subject and make a sensible decision for yourself.

sRGB or Adobe RGB 1998?

At least some compact camera's (like my Canon G9) and all D-SLR's offer you the choice between shooting your jpegs in sRGB colorspace or Adobe RGB 1998 colorspace. If you shoot RAW you can postpone the choice between the two until the moment you convert your RAW files to tiffs or jpegs. Is "bigger" or allegedly the "choice of professionals" therefore better?
