Which Kino tubes are you using and in what fixture? KF29 or KF32?

Personally, I don't like the KF29s at all. Much too reddish. Even worse in the Diva fixtures. If you manage to orient a Diva with the lamp connectors facing down, the combination of that plus these tubes is downright nasty.

The KF32 has a great color rendition IMO, but is perhaps slightly over 3200K. A bit of 1/8th CTO might warm it up some if needed. If you are matching other tungsten lights, chances are good they are less than the stated 3200K making the difference between lights more noticeable. No option for these in the 55w biax tubes for the Diva, which is a shame. One of the many reasons to use 4x4 banks instead.
