Color mode in setup

Is it better to set your camera up to the SRGB color mode or the Adobe RGB.
One thought that I had was that with the adobe mode's has more compatibility with photoshop for printing pictures. I'm not sure this is true or not, so anybody have any ideas? thanks

I've been using sRGB, it matches my workflow.
Neither is "more compatible with Photoshop", the Adobe RGB has a larger gamut (mainly greens), but typical web viewing and printing to home printers (and many commercial machines) is geared to the sRGB colour space.
If you work in Adobe RGB you need to convert web output to sRGB and include the profile for the pics to look right on non-colour manage applications (typical web browsers), plus make similar adjustments for printing (depending on the output device).
If you want a simple and satisfactory workflow/result, then the sRGB space is the way to go, if you are striving for the ultimate and are prepared to do additional work, then the Adobe RGB or ProPhoto, etc colour spaces might be for you.
