  1. Adobe RGB makes no sense for the everyday photographer. unless you have a very (expensive) special monitor and your printhouse has some high end printers to handle it. all the “household” monitors, printers and printshops are using sRGB… stop fooling users with this color space dispute and nonsense advice… :/

  2. Are you suggesting you get more information in an AdobeRGB file or is it just different information. In other words, do both color spaces use the same total bits mapped to the gamut’s range of colors. You might have a case if there’s actually more information, but if it’s not visible or reproducible on any devices with which you view those files, the value is questionable.

    I’d say that many understand completely the differences between color spaces and have made the choice about whether using AdobeRGB vs sRGB is worthwhile. In fact, I used to use it a lot. Now I just avoid the aggravation of having to translate color spaces for essentially all output devices. Yay, no more accidental green cast!

  3. Of course, as he says on the video (very quickly I might add), if you shoot in RAW, it doesn’t matter what color space you have set on the camera, because you’ll choose the color space to export to in Lightroom. Most photographers I know shoot in RAW, so this is a non-issue until you export your files.
