This question already has an answer here:
One thing I don't fully understand is why, when I take a photo with a Nikon and import it in Lightroom, the colors immediately appear desaturated and visibly different than what it looked like in the camera. What little I do understand is that it has something to do with Adobe Camera Raw versus Nikon's proprietary raw format.
So I get around that by importing first into ViewNX, which I fully expect to stop working with the latest version of Windows every time I upgrade. From there I export JPGs that have accurate color into Lightroom.
But I'm wondering if I'm missing something obvious that would allow me to ditch ViewNX and just use Lightroom for editing of raws. That Adobe seems to butcher the colors of all my raws drives me nuts, and given my current workflow I'm questioning why I shoot raw in the first place.
If I set my camera to shoot in Adobe RGB then would Lightroom accurately interpret my raw files? I understand there are tradeoffs involved with Adobe RGB when it comes to digital media but there seem to be a lot of unqualified opinions regarding this. I trust you guys though.
So, any advice? I'd like to shoot, import into Lightroom, see the images there as the camera displayed them and do my editing there as well.
