The basic discussion in the cr report makes no sense to me. I fail to see the connection between color temperature and "exposure".
Imagine, if you will, a flash that has the same temperature as either an incandescent light, the sun or flourescent lighting, as well as the normal "tungsten" value.
What this would mean is that the flash could be used outdoors and not render the subject in a different colour light than the ambient light.
Or maybe I could put it differently... the flash will be able to fire with a different "K" setting(s) than the normal "flash" "K" setting on your camera.
i.e. variable "white balance" from the flash so that it blends in better with the surroundings.
