Menu item details

sRGB (default setting):
This is the standard color space of the digital camera. Use [sRGB] in normal shooting, such as when you intend to print out the images without any modification.
This has a wide range of color reproduction. When a large part of the subject is vivid green or red, Adobe RGB is effective. The file name of the image starts with “_DSC.”


  • [AdobeRGB] is for applications or printers that support color management and DCF2.0 option color space. Images may not be printed or viewed in the correct colors if you use applications or printers that do not support Adobe RGB.
  • When displaying images that were recorded with [AdobeRGB] on the product or non-Adobe RGB-compliant devices, the images are displayed with low saturation.
