I knew that, it's just that the difference is alot morew than on my previous DSLR's so I thought maybe there is something else too.
JPEG from camera is processed according to the settings you preset in your camera.
RAW is not an image as for example JPEG or PNG. It is unprocessed data straight from the sensor. When you open it in Camera Raw or any other non-camera brand software, that software will interpret the data according to its settings. Hence the reason why RAW files might look flat, dull and usually underexposed compared to an in-camera processed JPEG. For example Nikon stores in-camera process setting inside the RAW files, which later can be read by Nikon Capture NX and produce the same photo as you would have if you shot just JPEG. Every other software ignores that stuff.
I suggest you read the manual for your camera and gather some general information on RAW files on the web to understand what RAW files are for, how to use them and what you can expect from.
I'll try that
Those are just the default processing settings for RAW files from your camera on ACR. Maybe you can create a preset on import.
I thought sRGP would be the best to use when pictures are intented mostly for internet and computers? What about ProPhoto, I read somewhere that it would be the best for printing and web?
You also should take a look into your Photoshop default profile. Also (Just a suggestion) always shoot using Adobe RGB.
