The 81A knocks appx 600 degrees K off the color Temp of the light hitting the film. The 81B is around 800 degrees, I think...don't have my color temp chart in front of me at present. I also almost always leave a 1/4 CTO gel on the front of my flash 'cause I hate that blue look from flashes. When using my real strobes (90percent of lit shots) I also use the 1/4 CTO on them often with a full CTO on a key light in the background or as a backlite for added warmth.
