Using my Canon 5D MKII, I shoot everything in RAW with the colour space set in the camera to Adobe RGB. Looking at the RAW files in Adobe CS4 Bridge, the Metadata file properties states that the Colour profile is 'Untagged'. Is that correct - or should it say Adobe RGB?
When you open up the RAW file in ACR, it states that the image has the Adobe RGB profile at the bottom of the screen and when it comes into PS, no profile mismatch warning comes up. Its only when you save the image as a PSD file when the metadata Colour Profile states Adobe RGB.
Since moving onto Windows Vista, if I am displaying images in Bridge through a video projector, the colours look over-saturated, whilst images displayed in other applications look fine. This does not happen on my standard monitor.
Any ideas what might be causing this?
A raw file has no color space. The camera setting is irrelevant (that's only for in-camera processed jpegs).
You open the file into a color space in ACR. You change this by clicking on the blue "link" under the main image window.
The rest is determined by your PS color management policies. With "preserve embedded profiles" checked, it will stay in that space no matter what your PS working space is.
EDIT: As for your second question, Bridge is color managed and will recognize the embedded profile, but other applications will just ignore it (and show it as if it was sRGB). But I've no idea how you would calibrate a projector to show correct colors.
