Hi, could someone kindly help me understand what colour space setting I really ought to be using on my EOS 350d?
The menu gives me the choice of sRGB or Adobe RGB.
Also, I assume I will a have to set the colour settings (in the Edit menu) in Photoshop 7 to match,?
Any help or advice is very much appreciated.
Thank you, Glyn.

You should at least be aware that many, but not all, print labs use sRGB and not Adobe RGB. If you are printing your photos at home using an inkjet printer Adobe RGB is probably a good choice b/c your printer should be able to accurately print the extra colors in the adobe color space. If you sent those same Adobe RGB prints to a lab that expected an sRGB color space you may find that some of the colors appear washed out. Obviously the results will vary from photo to photo depending on which colors were actually recorded for each image.

If you shoot raw, the setting on the camera is irrelevant because you can choose what you want in raw conversion. I use Adobe because it gives a wider colour gamut, but like creighton said, you have to be aware of colour spaces that others use. For example if you display for the web you will need to convert to sRGB.
