In my Dynax 5D all JPEG file taken using AdobeRGB color space use the .JPE

and 3rd possiblilty : the camera use the exif.image.colorspace tag to set the
right color space use to transform the image : 0 = undefined, 1 = sRGB, 2 =
AdobeRgb, 0 = undefined, 65535 = uncalibrated. Look here :
...and search colorspace tag. digiKam parse this tag value when image is
loaded in editor and embedded automaticly the right icc color space profile.
