sRGB is the "standard" one, but Adobe RGB has a bigger colour range.

hmmm, think a TN panel screen could tell the difference?

That's beyond me... I haven't gone into calibrated colour yet so I just go by what looks good on the screen :D

.
My thread Colour Spaces: sRGB, AdobeRGB or ProPhotoRGB may be of interest.

Bob.

Is it beneficial to stick with sRBG if your camera processed the image in that color space? Or does the raw data automatically get converted into a different color space when you're editing in a different space?

Keep in mind that if viewing on the web, on sRGB is supported.

No, TN panels cannot display the full range of any of the colour spaces. To give you an idea, most TN panels display 6 bits per colour natively while JPEGs do 8-bits.

Most RAW editors allow you to specify a working colour space that's different from the output colour space. I've come across people who work in ProPhoto (a wide gamut space) and then output to either sRGB or Adobe RGB.

Sure they can. 6 bits vs. 8 bits has nothing to do with the color space spanned. That just tells you the "resolution" that monitor will have within its gamut. There are plenty of TN wide gamut monitors that span all or near all the aRGB gamut.

Which you pick largely depends on your purpose. Typically I would just select sRGB. If I want to print, I'll start with the RAW file and convert it to aRGB space. For image saving purposes I'll save in sRGB. The difference is relatively minor in most cases and can be previewed in photoshop if you are curious.

Perhaps range was a bad choice of words on my part but most TN monitors cannot display the all the colours of an 8-bit image. The full range maybe, but with gaps.
