Are "Daylight" flourescents or other flourescents at 5500K or 6500K not
balanced to the sunshine?

Yes they are.

Walmart sells an executive desk lamp for $20 that includes an

across the store and had to have it. I highly recommend it for any
indoor shots where accurate color is important.

a pinhole, they contain a mixture of short continuous spectrums, and
single frequencies.
