Color Space
Color spaces define the correspondence between colors and the 
numeric values that represent them in a digital image file. The sRGB 
color space is widely used, while the Adobe RGB color space is typically 
used in publishing and commercial printing. sRGB is recommended 
when taking photographs that will be printed without modification or 
viewed in applications that do not support color management, or when 
taking photographs that will be printed with ExifPrint, the direct 
printing option on some household printers, or kiosk printing or other 
commercial print services. Adobe RGB photographs can also be printed 
using these options, but colors will not be as vivid.
JPEG photographs taken in the Adobe RGB color space are Exif 2.21 and 
DCF 2.0 compliant; applications and printers that support Exif 2.21 and 
DCF 2.0 will select the correct color space automatically. If the 
application or device does not support Exif 2.21 and DCF 2.0, select the 
appropriate color space manually. An ICC color profile is embedded in 
TIFF photographs taken in the Adobe RGB color space, allowing 
applications that support color management to automatically select 
the correct color space. For more information, see the documentation 
provided with the application or device.
Nikon Software
ViewNX (supplied) and Capture NX 2 (available separately) automatically 
select the correct color space when opening photographs created with 
this camera.
