My answer is definitely sRGB if you wish to preserve dynamic range.

But only with this camera. I don't see sRGB ever having greater dynamic range  with other cameras. And you'll be clipping colors (and there are lots of them in the real world ) that are outside the gamut of sRGB.

And that is the OP point and we got it.

You stated earlier in a post that this wasn't.

>Having said that, it's not a sRGB vs AdobeRGB thread. Never said that nor I'm interested in starting one.<

Yet you state

>My answer is definitely sRGB if you wish to preserve dynamic range.<

Contradiction?

Calling me arrogant and sarcastic doesn't help? It only reflects your own attitudes. I think you are smarting from buying a camera that doesn't live up to your expectations and that at least three posters have told you that. I will leave the last word to yourself. Grin

Stamper, are you serious?!? Can't you really catch it or are you just trying to troll around?
This is going to be my last reply to you: I'll make it super easy… again, you're the only one who didn't catch it so far. This is a sum of wrote we already wrote before.

  • It's not a thread about color spaces theory.
  • it's a thread about Fujifilm rendition of jpegs for certain color spaces.
  • For this specific camera, sRGB settings will bring better result. It's not a general statement.
  • I bought this camera before doing this test.
  • This characteristic was undocumented before that.
  • I'm satisfied with this behavior. In any case I'm shooting Raw+JPG.
  • Some members told they were unsatisfied with the X10 while much more told they are. Not strictly here. My last word is: I'll decide based on my conclusions while respecting anyone's thoughts.

Another sRGB vs AdobeRGB quote and I'll be forced to ignore you. Good day.

If you find the test examples very informative then you have a lot to learn? Smiley They only reinforced the OP's thinking and weren't in anyway exhaustive. It wasn't only me arguing against them. Wink BTW how did I manage to piss you off? This is your first post in the thread. Huh

I repeated the test by changing the strategy.

Shot another high contrast scene and produced both the version from the Raw conversion feature in the camera itself, so exactly the same shot.
Loading both the versions in Lightroom you can clearly see the histogram expanding on the sides for the AdobeRGB version, which means more contrast, which translates in less detail for shadows and highlights.

To mitigate what I wrote on the first post, you can actually set a softer settings for the highlight recovery when working with AdobeRGB and a step (or two) above setting for the sRGB version.
Anyway the first assumption is valid. AdobeRGB = less dynamic range.
