I was looking at this little kit:

 

 http://www.ebay.com/...=item4d096c0f37

 

I'm curious as to the 5500K.  Since these are Fluorescent, do they still emit a green cast?  Are they still going to need a gel to correct them If natural daylight is involved?  Also, would you just use a regular type CT Orange gel to mix them with Redheads or is the fact they're fluorescent going to require something a little different?

 

Thanks

Those are daylight compact flos, I forget who makes them -- they have a tiny bit of green in them but you can use some light Minus-Green gel to remove it if you notice it, you may not.  You would switch them to 3200K compact flos or put CTO gel on them for tungsten-balance.  Or even better, put ordinary tungsten light bulbs in the sockets.
