As to how much brighter, you will have to look up some photometric charts to find out. There are many different types of HMI gear, and that all plays a part, as well as age, state of repair, Fresnel vs Par, lenses, etc.

However, if you think this means it's better to just gel HMI's to 3200K, think again -- the color is a bit odd when you do that.

I see. I have heard of people using HMIs a lot for interior lighting and studio light, and as you say you, just because you gel an HIM doesn't mean it will look correct, then why is it that people choose to use them? If shooting on tungsten balanced stock, whats the benefit for using the HMIs when you can get rid of the light loss of gels and extra equipment of ballasts? I guess what I am saying is, what is the advantage of using HMIs on nights and interiors on T balanced film?
