about slide film

By balanced I mean the color temperature. I use tungstun film and I think
the correct temp is 3400 degrees Kelvin. Sunlight is about 6000 degrees K.
A photo shop can steer you right. You just buy a different set of bulbs for
the flood lamps. That's why your pics look yellow when you shoot daylight
film indoors under normal reading lamps.

Woody, can you tell me about these balanced flood lamps? Are they
normal flood lamps with special light bulbs or are they special lamps
that you can only get at a photography shop?
Thanks for the link it was helpful.
