The range of reproducible colors is called the color space. With this 
camera, you can set the color space for captured images to sRGB or 
Adobe RGB. For normal shooting, sRGB is recommended.
The color space is set automatically to sRGB in the <
A> mode.
1
Select [Color space].
 
Under the [z2] tab, select [Color 
space
], then press <
0>.
2
Set the desired color space.
 
Select [sRGB] or [Adobe RGB], then 
press <
0>.
This color space is mainly used for commercial printing and other 
industrial uses. This setting is not recommended if you do not know 
about image processing, Adobe RGB, and Design rule for Camera File 
System 2.0 (Exif 2.21 or higher). The image will look very subdued in a 
sRGB personal computer environment and with printers not compatible 
with Design rule for Camera File System 2.0 (Exif 2.21 or higher). Post-
processing of the image with software will therefore be required.

The ICC profile is not appended. Refer to explanations about the ICC 
profile in the Digital Photo Professional Instruction Manual (p.396).
