    I see on the parameters there is an Adobe RGB setting.
    If I use Photoshop should I set this as standard or Adobe RGB or what?

    Unless most of your work is going to be used for pre-press and be converted
    to CMYK for printing on press's use the sRGB and set your color space in
    Adobe to sRGB.

    Most all devices used for printing of photo images (Frontier, Noritsu,
    inkjets, etc) are RGB and will "flatten" the colors from Adobe.

    I am trying to do what you have suggested. I took some raw format
    photos (CRW in my canon d10) with the paramaters set as adobe rgb. Now
    I am trying to open the file in adobe and it says the document has an
    embedded colour profile that does not match the current RGB workspace:
    use embedded, discard embedded or convert the colours to the working

    What should I do?

    sRGB in the camera. sRGB in Adobe. Do not use Adobe RGB. Pretend that Adobe
    RGB is a non-existent thing, a fairy tale.

    Use only sRGB.

    Haha! OK, But on the camera the only parameter options are:

    Adobe RGB
    Set 1
    Set 2
    set 3
    set up

    So, how do I pick sRGB from that lot? : )

    Bob - you really need to learn what you're talking about before spewing
    bad advice to people.

    The camera can do better than sRGB, and the printer can do better than
    sRGB -- so why throw away your colors by using sRGB?
    There is a reason that professionals recommend USING Adobe RGB.

  8. sRGB is a color space crippled gamut designed for CRTs by manufacturers
    such as HP et al, it is not what you should use. If you shoot raw it
    doesn't matter what you set your 10D to but convert to Adobe RGB and
    use it in Photoshop as far as you can, converting to sRGB only when
    absolutely needed in situations like Web display, etc.
