Colour Space...what is it?

    ....and, of course, the imponderable is "what do you actually see on your monitor"? Not only do many popular models have fairly restricted colour space (compared to what a camera sensor can capture) but many become even more restricted with age - probably starting after just a few tens of hours of use. But we still get by.

    Have you looked in the camera's user manual? (The paper thing that is not a CD).
    My Pentax K5 user manual explains things well enough for me to decide which one I use - sRGB so that I have a better chance of prints looking like images I see on my PC screen. Adobe RGB will retain more colours, but some of them will not print correctly. If you don't want to read the manual, Wikipedia has a technical explanation.
