Just curious what mode people are using. SRGB or ARGB.

Mine is set to sRGB, but I only shoot raw files, so it really makes no difference.

sRGB. When I open RAWs I also import them as sRGB; doing it only as a hobby and doing all adjustments on a TN panel screen I don't think I'd be able to fully utilize AdobeRGB anyway.

I shoot Raw, so the only time I pay attention to the color space is if I'm shooting something with bright saturated colors. The color space will affect the RGB histogram and I'll give thought as to how I want to handle that -- sRGB has a "smaller" gamut and so the histogram will show colors going out of gamut sooner than the aRGB histogram would. In that sense the sRGB space/histogram is "safer" to use, whereas the aRGB histogram is a more accurate representation of the whole gamut of the Raw capture but if you want to push it "to the right" you will have to deal with the colors to "tame" them into the sRGB space in your Raw processor if you want to present them for "general/generic" view.

If I was shooting jpegs, I'd probably just stay in the sRGB space so my out-of-camera images could be ready for general viewing with no hassles.

Also, many if not most print labs are most compatible with sRGB.

So, think of sRGB as "safe" and only go to aRGB for specific reasons and IMO you won't be sorry.

Camera is set to sRGB. I don't want the _ in the filename, and I want the on camera histogram to be based on sRGB.

I shoot raw, and use whatever color space I want in the raw converter.

The standard advice for beginners here is to use sRGB until you have learned enough about color management to understand when Adobe RGB is appropriate. The link in the post above is a good place to start.

Rene': You have just reminded me to "think" before I ask :) I shoot raw also so should have been able to see that. You know the story...If it was a snake it would have bit me!
