Correcting daylight Divas to tungsten and fluorescent

I have a Diva kit with daylight timed bulbs.

For matching tungsten, I'm looking at Full C.T. Orange Lee gels. However, I'm not sure what to use to convert daylight (5500K) to fluorescent light (5000K). Any ideas?

Also, should I be looking at something other than Full CTO for converting daylight to tungsten - perhaps Quarter or Half CTO?

Wait a second! To correct Divas to tungsten, just switch the globes to tungsten. That's one of the main advantages to the whole KF line.

You have a point. I was hoping to save some money. Any tips on what gels I should look at?

As John said, switch the lamps in your Diva's to the tungsten balanced ones. That's the beauty of owning Kino Flo products. Not to do it to save money is the wrong answer. It will cost you elsewhere.

That being said, use Rosco's CINEGEL #3411 to correct your 5500K lamps to 3200K.

To correct your 5500K lamps to 5000 use Rosco's CINEGEL #3444, and ADD Rosco's CINEGEL #3317 to balance to the fluoresent's green.
