The meter suggests using an 82A or 82B cooling filter to balance the flash light. The specs for portra 400 suggest no filtration for daylight or flash. I'm wondering if 4400K to 4800K is close enough to the 5500K this film is presumably calibratred for? Is it impotant to filter in this case? Thanks in advance for your advice...
I'd think you should be able to adjust the coloration when printing. If you are going to shoot a gray card and match that, don't alter the flash output after that.
