What's the advantage of Adobe RGB for me?
Hey, guys, and girls! I have been hearing that Adobe RGB (and Profoto RGB) is better than sRGB for a long time. But I do not know what's the advantage of shooting Adobe RGB for me. I can shoot Adobe RGB in my camera, but my monitor only shows sRGB. After I edit in photoshop, I usually save as jpg, which only support sRGB, either give to my clients or post online. If I shoot in Adobe RGB, I need to convert to sRGB then save as jpg in photoshop. Lightroom can help make this process much easier, but when Lightroom does not work ( for example now it does not recognize my D810 new raw file after I updated LR and worked once), this process of converting multiple photos is pain in the butt in PS. I do print some photos out, and the online printer usually only accept jpg or tiff with sRGB profile inbedded. Even if they accept Adobe RGB, the printer color profile CYMK is smaller than sRGB. Anyway, my point is I think sRGB is enough for me (and most amateur photographers I guess) to view on my monitor, to display online and to print out. What do you think?
I can notice there was color degrade when I change from Adobe RGB to sRGB on my monitor. But I suspect the color in jpg will be better if I shoot in sRGB rather than Adobe RGB.
I have had this question for a long time, would like to hear your thoughts!
