Your choice of color space should enhance your overall workflow and enable you to maintain color reproduction consistently across all your devices and capture as much image data as possible. Whichever option you choose, remember that you can always change the color space in Photoshop or DPP. DPP supports sRGB, ColorMatch RGB, Apple RGB, and Wide Gamut RGB color spaces. ICC profiles can also be attached to TIFF and JPEG images when converted from RAW files. This allows faithful reproduction of colors in software applications that support ICC profiles, such as Photoshop and Lightroom. A set of image adjustments can be saved as a recipe and applied later. If you choose Adobe RGB, the 5D Mark II image filenames are appended with _MG_ xxxx.type.

ICC is an abbreviation for the International Color Consortium that promotes the use and adoption of open, vendor-neutral, cross-platform color management systems. This group introduced the standard device profile format used to characterize color devices.

Photoshop and other applications that support ICC profiles use the profiles to produce colors more accurately so that colors are consistent when printed or viewed on different devices. Photoshop also uses profiles to convert RGB values to CMYK (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Black) and CMYK to RGB, to display photo CD image color more accurately, and to soft-proof an image at a different setting so you can see how the image should look when printed.
